This Mom Called C-SPAN to Tell Her Pundit Sons to STFU. I LIVE.

Two men were going back and forth on C-SPAN about politics and whatnots when they got a call from the general line where people phone in to drop their 2 cents about whatever is happening. The two happened to be brothers and when they heard the voice on the other end, they knew they were in trouble because it was their Mom. This is pure gold. Watch:

She came out the gate snapping! LMAOOOO! When dude on the left immediately drops his head and goes “Oh God It’s Mom,” a cackle escaped from my spirit. He was so done for! Dude on the right tried to keep his horror away from the surface but his brother was appalled enough for both of them. But Mama called to snatch BOTH their wigs because she is clearly sick of their shit and she felt like letting the whole world know. Mrs. Woodhouse is alright with me.

“I was very glad this year was the year that you two were supposed to go to your in-laws and I’m hoping you have some of this out of your system when you come home for Christmas.”

That is the best “I wish y’all would STFU statement I’ve heard this week.” She told Brad and Dallas not to bring their petty shit home on White Jesus’ birthday because she ain’t got time for it. TELL ME, MA! TELL EM! A house divided indeed. For her to say she is happy they didn’t hop their arguing asses to her crib on Turkey Day lets you know how fed up she is.

But she tempered it with how she loves them. Because even bad ass mamas are made of sugar and spice and some things nice. Mrs. Woodhouse is the real MVP because more people need to tell smug men to shut their asses up in public.

What I also appreciate is how she spoke about expansion of healthcare. She is a knowledgeable shade queen and that’s greatness.


I can only aspire to embarrassing my kids on a grand scale like this one day. Like when I pick them up at school in some flip flops and socks. I DREAM A DREAM!

Also, I clearly need to watch C-SPAN more because if more things like this are happening on that channel, this could become my new “stories.” It’s like “All My Children: Politics Edition.” Y’all coulda told me this whole time. I coulda been watching C-SPAN with popcorn talmbout “OH NO HE DIDN’T SAY THAT TO HIM!”

Y’all gotta tell me these things.

    She is so weary of them. So. Weary. I love her. And they had better check it at the door on Christmas or else her revolution may again be televised.

    Joy had not the smallest amount of time to giver her children showing their partisan behinds on national television. None whatsoever. They had better come for the Christmas goose with bipartisanship in their hearts and minds and they both know it.

    The one in that brown suit just wanted to lay his burdens down and fly away once he realized it was his mother on the phone. The other one looked like he might have been fixing to say something slick but thought better of it once Mamma got going.

    I just want to see the part that lead up to her calling in because she was clearly ticked off about something or was this just some general pisstivity based on how they’ve been carrying on for years? I need answers!

      She says they were always like this and I know momma is weary of the nonsense. The facilitator is too tickled & notes she called on the regular call line. This was not planned comic relief. I am sure the one on the left is the oldest cause he looked less upset. He is also the one who has probably given her the most grief. This is just priceless.

    A true Southern mama. One who, when you get to tall to smack that head will kneecap you instead. And dare you to say any gat damn thing. With your 50 year old, overgrown, cornfed, standing in the road cretin-ness.

    Joy has replenished my soul!!! And the other guy was living for this, just look at his eyes!!!

  9. December 16, 2014 at 9:05 pm

    But did you see around the 0:46 mark when Dallas was running his mouth over his mama, and Brad said under his breath “let yo mama talk…” TOOO funny! I’m from Alabama and I know first hand, Southern mama’s do NOT play!!

    Bless her heart. She was too embarrassed they were out here showing their behinds to the world like they didn’t have any home training. Got the neighbors whispering about them and everything. Incidentally, I already hit my kids with the flip flops and socks number. I spent the afternoon with my oldest when she was cutting up in class and I promise you, we had NO MORE problems.

    Mama is a multi purpose shade queen. After she snatched her boys wigs, she made sure the world knew she was for the Affordable Health care act cause her grand baby was getting the services he needs dammit!

    Boo, C-Span ain’t like All My Children. Almost Everyday a racist calls in and drops the n-word. There’s no Jesse or Angie there to check them either. Just a weary host who cuts off their call and apologizes for their language. Nothing to see there. Let’s move on.
