Rep. Greg Casar (D-TX), the new member of “The Squad,” faced endless waves of ridicule for a ‘thirst strike’ that failed to eclipse 10 hours.

“Yesterday was incredible. I was honored to be joined at my thirst strike by workers in Texas and across the nation—and by lots of colleagues pushing for federal heat safety protections,” Casar said.

“9 hours without water or food, but I’m more energized than ever to get this done,” he added.

This picture perfectly sums up the state of many men in the United States.


Weak and pathetic.

Casar’s ‘thirst strike’ faced brutal mockery on social media.


“Is this a joke? Do you wake up in the middle of the night every night and grab a bite to eat, glass of water to survive until morning?” Viva Frei asked.

“9 WHOLE HOURS???” Jordan Schachtel sarcastically wrote.

“Bro you didn’t eat or drink for 8 hours…. I legit do this everyday from 11pm to 7am,” Ryan James Girdusky commented.

This meme sums up the virtue-signaling spectacle quite well.

So brave!

“Wait… you’re a Texan and you can’t take a little heat???” Bryan McNally asked.

“Democrat Greg Casar went 8 hours without eating or drinking something. To normal Americans, that’s just skipping breakfast or lunch at work. To him, it’s a hunger strike that he set up media cameras for once it was over. What a pathetic stunt,” Canary CEO Dan Eberhart commented.

Fox News tracked more online comments mocking Casar’s publicity stunt:

Many commentators joked that already go through similar durations without drinking as part of their daily routine, such as when they sleep.

“I go on a thirst strike literally every night at bedtime,” BlazeTV host Sara Gonzales tweeted. “Please clap.”

“Just woke up from my thirst strike,” The Spectator contributing editor Stephen L. Miller joked.

“Man totally forgot to brag about how I pulled off a Rep. Greg Casar-style thirst strike last night with zero prep,” Republican social media and digital strategist Alex Sears quipped. “All I did was go to bed and not get up until my alarm rang!”

Many commentators mocked a dramatic photo of the congressional representative appearing exasperated with what appears to be a heart rate monitor on his finger.

Judiciary GOP communications specialist joked that the picture is representative of how one feels “After getting literally anything through the approval process.”

Please clap for this stunning display of bravery!
