Scott Walker’s Incompetence Shines Bright As He Screws Up A Simple Venn Diagram



Outgoing Wisconsin Governor, Scott Walker, is having an eventful week with much of his time spent trying to strip power from incoming Governor, Tony Evers.

The power grab has been very controversial and attacks on Walker have come from both sides of the aisle. In an attempt to explain his decision, Walker created a Venn diagram. The only problem was, Walker seemingly doesn’t understand how a Venn diagram works.

Rather than showing the powers the administrations would share in the center of the diagram, Walker’s graph says same powers. Twitter’s response to the diagram was predictably fast and savage.

This is what Walker’s diagram looked like:

There was this graph that hoped to help educate Governor Walker:

And this one that took on a sports theme:

This one compared Walker to another man who had difficulty with Venn diagrams:

While the tweets making funny of Walker are funny, the power grab in Wisconsin is a serious situation. Tony Evers responded to the legislation, saying “Today, Governor Walker chose to ignore and override the will of the people of Wisconsin. This will no doubt be his legacy. The people demanded a change on November 6th, and they asked us to solve problems, not pick petty, political fights.”

Walker’s actions are similar to ones taken by outgoing Republican Governors in Michigan and North Carolina. While controversial, Democrats do not yet have recourse to stop them.
