not being able to read the New York Times.

But, I am not funny.

But seriously, folks, good on Proops. It is downright embarrassing, not to mention shameful, that a Supreme Court Justice admits that any viewpoint other than his own makes him so furious that he cannot tolerate it. And doesn't even get how badly he befouled himself professionally with the comment,

Greg Proops tears apart Antonin Scalia for being unable to read the New York Times

Comedian Greg Proops lampooned Antonin Scalia on Monday, making fun of the Supreme Court justice for completely refusing to read liberal newspapers and believing in the Devil.

During an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, Proops noted that Scalia had told New York magazine that he couldnt handle reading The Washington Post and the New York Times because of their alleged liberal bias.

Ok, look, Im a comedian, Proops said. I have no responsibility to the public. Im not holding a sinecured position where I am adjudicating of f*cking matters of grave national importance every day of my life and writing opinions and being a deciding vote on a f*cking panel of nine people who were hand chosen by psychopaths and yet I have the catholicity of taste to f*cking watch Fox News every once and awhile, and I dont go, Oh my god!

You cant read the New York Times because it upsets you too much and youre a justice? he continued. How narrow is you f*cking purview?
