COVID-19 Iso Has Everyone Lusting Over VIC's Chief Health Officer As A Young '90s Fk Boi

CHOttie.

Australia is grappling with a second surge of COVID-19 in VIC as Victorian premier Dan Andrews’ solemn announcements of confirmed cases have become a daily routine for the country. The prospect of COVID-19 forcing everyone back into lockdown and face masks becoming mandatory has got many people’s knees shaking, but not quite as much as a throwback photo of VIC Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton looking like a 90’s fk boi that’s making the rounds on the internet.

Speaking of COVID-19 and Dan Andrews, the GOAT team talk about why everyone needs to wear a face mask on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

For many Aussies, VIC’s Chief Health Officer, Brett Sutton, is perhaps best known as the state’s leading health expert and something of Victorian Premier Dan Andrews’ right hand man in this whole COVID-19 thing. On the surface, he’s nothing more than a middle-aged white man who is doing what he can during these difficult times and is radiating some silver fox vibes.

However, that image of Brett has been completely shattered after someone unearthed an old 1997 photo of Sutton looking less like the middle-aged VIC Chief Health Officer of today and more like the unholy fk boi offspring of every 90s grunge band frontman.

To the absolute surprise of no one, the revelation that Brett Sutton was a long-haired 90s lothario combined with the effects of iso has resulted in a lot of people becoming inexplicably horny over VIC’s Chief Health Officer.

For all of Dan Andrews’ efforts in getting people to wear face masks, this resurfaced pic of fk boi Brett Sutton may have undid all his efforts given how people are now taking off their masks so they can hyperventilate over VIC’s Chief Health Officer looking like the bastard love child of Eddie Vedder and Chris Cornell.

On one hand, we should probably judge the man on his job performance as Victoria’s leading health expert rather than his 90’s fk boi self and it’s not been great given the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in VIC. But on the other hand, things are so grim right now – especially in Victoria – that we could all use a bit of light-hearted content to get people though these dark times.

It is difficult but possible to be critical of VIC’s leading health expert while also acknowledging him to be a thirst trap once the fog of lust wears off a bit.

It’s been surprisingly tough to get everyone onboard the mandatory face mask thing (especially all the Karens out there) despite overwhelming evidence.

But if there’s one thing that’ll convince people, it’s probably VIC Chief Medical Officer Brett Sutton looking like a fk boi who hasn’t showered in a week and will definitely make you a mix tape of all his favourite songs.

Trump's Niece Spills The Scalding Hot Tea On Her Uncle's 'Sociopathic Tendencies'

*grabs massive tub of popcorn*

We all know that Donald Trump is a big orange baby who has a few screws loose and is forever seeking the validation he never got from his old man from bloodthirsty dictators, but hearing someone from his own family who is a clinical psychologist, like his niece Mary Trump, talk openly to a great interviewer like Stephen Colbert about her uncle’s many shortcomings, his “sociopathic tendencies,” and his cognitive tests is chilling yet gripping television.

Speaking of Trump, the GOAT team talk about how K-pop stans trolled the big orange baby on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

Appearing on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show to talk about her tell-all family memoir, Mary Trump wastes no time diving deep into the troubled psyche of her uncle, saying that Donald’s 2016 US presidential victory as “one of the worst nights of my life” and how he’s someone who has “so many pathologies” that are “so complex” and filled with “so much co-morbidity.”

It’s pretty jarring to watch a Trump speak in coherent coherent sentences, let alone measured and reasonable ones, but that feeling is quickly replaced by a sense of unease due to the unfiltered way Mary spoke of her big orange baby of an uncle. Mary wasn’t Cadet Bone Spur’s favourite Trump niece in the first place and she only reinforced her position in the family here.

When asked by Colbert whether there was anything that can be done therapeutically for F***face von Clownstick at this point, Mary emphatically says: “It’s an awful answer, and I hate saying it, but I think the answer is no.”

Diving into what made Combover Caligula into what he is today, Mary says “We’re talking about a man who I do not believe could function in the world on his own” and describes her uncle as someone who “demonstrates sociopathic tendencies” that stem from a lifetime of “failing upward spectacularly” while not being held accountable for his actions.

Diving into her family’s dodgy past, which includes her tyrannical grandfather being arrested at a KKK rally, Mary notes how the Trump family legacy of instilling fear rather than love ultimately shaped Donald into the big orange baby we know today.

The cherry on top of this brilliant chat is Mary’s thoughts about Donald’s cognitive tests and his subsequent boasting about passing said tests, saying how bragging about passing these tests is itself an indication of failure.

Mary Trump’s interview with Stephen Colbert lasts about 25 minutes and every single one is doused in scalding hot tea so definitely don’t miss any of it.

From the lack of hugs as a kid and the “sociopathic tendencies” to the likely failing of several cognitive tests, everything Mary Trump said about her uncle Donald isn’t anything we already didn’t know about the big orange baby.

But to hear it all come from not only the lone sympathetic Trump who is also a clinical psychologist is a pretty spine-chilling first-hand account, and it just highlights how important the 2020 US presidential election is turning out to be.

Captain America Is On A RL Mission To Save The US From Its Own Politicians

Step aside, Thanos.

Chris Evans may have helped save the Earth from Thanos as Captain America (with a supporting turn as Johnny Storm), but that pales in comparison to his real-world mission to try and save the US: launching a politics-focused website called ‘A Starting Point‘ to help prevent his country from imploding due to its own politicians.

Speaking of Captain America and politicians, the GOAT team talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe on ‘It’s Been A Big Day For…’ below:

Given the ineptitude displayed by many America’s politicians (especially the big orange baby in the White House), the level of tension gripping the country right now, the importance of the 2020 presidential election, and just the sheer complexity of US politics in general, Chris Evans decided that being Captain America wasn’t enough and decided to launch ‘A Starting Point’ as a way to help his country.

As the website name suggests, ‘A Starting Point’ is an entryway for those who want a basic understanding on what the hell is going on in US politics, what the TL:DR of the country’s major talking points are, and info on important topics such as immigration, healthcare, the economy, and education, all aimed at helping to inform people’s vote.

The big hook for ‘A Starting Point’ though is how it is a platform that offers politicians on both sides of the aisle – Democrats and Republicans – to explain their policies and viewpoints to people in a succinct yet digestible way.

To emphasise that ‘A Starting Point‘ isn’t just something other people have done with Chris Evans’ handsome mug plastered all over it as some sort of mascot, Wired reports that Captain America himself went over to Washington and filmed more than 1,000 videos of politicians speaking about the big issues of the day.

Evans has made it no secret that he hates Trump and all that the big orange baby stands for, but the goal of ‘A Starting Point’ is to advocate the bridging of the political divide in America rather than dumping on Cadet Bone Spurs.

It all sounds great on paper but in reality, well, ‘A Starting Point’ is actually bloody brilliant because it does exactly what Evans and his collaborators set out to do and the website does it in a non-partisan yet informative way. Who would’ve thought that a platform offering both political sides the same opportunity to explain themselves in an non-petty manner could exist in 2020?

So not only has Captain America given us some much needed positivity by romancing Lily James, he’s dusted off his shield (figuratively) to help save his country (but for real this time). If there’s anything to glean from all this, it’s that ‘A Starting Point’ has only extended Chris Evans’ lead in the “Best Celebrity Chris” debate.
