Wall of Shame: New Year’s Update Special

Editor’s Note: hello and Happy New Year! As regular readers know, one of the most popular features here on ninaillingworth.com is our constantly expanding Wall of Shame; a humorous, no holds barred look at the simpering pack of mendacious liars, shills and sycophants that pass for the American free press in what is now clearly, one of the most corrupt times in history.

Over the past few months of compiling tweets and writing updates; I’ve often been asked why I didn’t include numerous, objectively hilarious tweets by accomplished Wall of Shame “honorees” and in most cases, it’s simply because the tweet was published after I’d already written-up a given entry – with so many “worthy” but unrecognized nominees still roaming the wilds of Twitter; it’s awful hard to justify going back to get “better” bad tweets from people we’ve already enshrined.

In light of the above, and in no small way influenced by the consumption of copious quantities of alcohol; I thought it might be fun to compile a mass Wall of Shame update composed of one stunningly obtuse or dishonest tweet from each of our current, inducted Wall of Shamers – a sort of “where are these dipshits now” shout out to celebrate the New Year by counting coup on craven, chunder-headed collaborators; I even included some bonus links and an official, ninaillingworth.com suggested New Year’s resolution for each honoree:
