Confused Senator Chuck Grassley Prepped On Facebook, iPods, Atari, Telegraphs, Printing Press Ahead Of Judiciary Hearing
Washington, DC -- Relic of the past and Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley was prepped vigorously ahead of a potential senate hearing in the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica-Facebook scandal, receiving information about the social media giant, iPod Nano’s, 70’s video game console Atari, the telegraph, and the printing press.
While Grassley was vaguely familiar with as he put it “Gutenberg’s great machine,” by the time aides began discussing Atari, the Republican politician’s “wheels stopped turning.”
“Have you ever tried to talk technology with an 84-year-old? And specifically an out-of-touch GOP senator from Iowa? We’re supposed to eventually get to mobile advertisers and apps and data misappropriation? He doesn’t have a cell. He uses a typewriter to send greetings back to family in Des Moines. Email and online profiles, these are foreign concepts.”
Grassley was nonetheless confident. “Mr. Mark Zuckerberg better be honest with the American people, I’ve received dozens of smoke signals and ravens and believe me our citizens are going to hold his feet to the fire,” the senator told us.
