High-profile Black conservatives tend to be cartoonishly obnoxiousCandace Owens and Jason Whitlock, for example—but GOP Sen. Tim Scott just might be the goofiest of them all.

To be sure, he’s not quite near the level of wannabe-white nationalist absurdity that Owens and Whitlock live on, but when it comes to playing the role of feckless, groveling MAGA stooge, Scott often appears to be an all-too-eager method actor—and it’s always quite cringe-worthy.

Scott, who dropped out of the GOP presidential race in November and endorsed frontrunner Donald Trump last Friday, joined his MAGA massa’ on stage as he celebrated his landslide win over Nikki Haley in the New Hampshire primary.

As usual, making Trump make sense takes some effort, so here’s a quick rundown of whatever he was talking to Scott about via HuffPost:

In 2012, when she was governor of South Carolina, Haley appointed Scott, then a member of the House of Representatives, to his Senate seat to replace retiring Sen. Jim DeMint.

“Did you ever think that she actually appointed you, Tim?” Trump said of Haley during his speech. “And you’re the senator of her state. And [you] endorsed me.”

“You must really hate her,” he added.

Scott, who had been standing behind Trump, approached the mic and said: “I just love you.”

“That’s why he’s a great politician!” Trump said.

Scott might be trying to outdo MMA fighter Colby Covington in expressing his deeply personal affection for Trump. There’s just no reason to gush over a fellow politician like this.

The fine folks on X were also put off by Scott’s shameless display of his orangey man-crush.

The history books will not be kind to the myriad spineless meat sacks who jettisoned every ounce of dignity they possessed and debased themselves before this miserable, disloyal, soulless husk of a man. https://t.co/q7Ry9DAdvy

My cringe is cringing at the supplicatory antics of @votetimscott. While you’d expect such manic and thirsty suckuppery from Vivek, this is as painfully embarrassing as it gets in politics for most others. https://t.co/TuGjsJX7vI

Nah, but seriously—I’m going to need Scott to stop looking at Trump like Nala looked at Simba during the “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” montage from The Lion King. He looks like somebody had to talk him out of bringing a set of pom-poms on stage with him. Tim Scott wants to be Harley Quinn to Trump’s Joker so bad.

It would be embarrassing if MAGA conservatives were truly capable of shame. But alas…

Basketball star Kyrie Irving captured the media’s attention when he faced allegations of anti-Semitism due to a social media post containing a link to the film, “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.” Succumbing to external pressure, Irving removed the controversial post and offered a public apology. Nonetheless, upon further examination of the circumstances, it appears that Irving might have been criminally deprived of his rights, and could potentially possess a legal claim against his former employer for violating contractual terms.
