I would ordinarily be watching Thursday Night Football, but for some reason I’m not

Nothing like a Wednesday night boycott of Thursday Night Football. Twitter, of course, leapt at this golden opportunity.
Probably because it is Wednesday, you senile racist dick.

This, of course, is not Republicans’ first failed attempt at a boycott. In just the last year, conservatives have called for boycotts of Starbucks, Stephen Colbert, and Hamilton on Broadway. All three continue to be enormous successes.
Judging by the looks of it, Thursday Night Football and the NFL will be just fine, too.
