Marge, oh Marge, you’re giving college graduates a bad name. At least most people who get out of college have some rudimentary knowledge of history and what things were invented when. Very few people think that Marie Antoinette invented the light bulb or that Thomas Edison invented the H-bomb, but these ideas would be revolutionary to the world view of Marjorie Taylor Greene, who thinks that the director of the FBI has been hiding Seth Rich’s laptop for the past 66 years.

Now, first of all, Wray can’t be hiding anybody’s laptop for the past 66 years. There were no laptops 66 years ago. At that point there were no personal computers, period. The age of the PC appearing on desks in offices was the 80’s, not the 50’s.
Seth Rich was born in 1989. Around 2010, laptops became popular and Rich may indeed have owned one, but he didn’t own one since the late 50’s, which is when Marge is talking about. That’s an absolute.
Also, while we’re fact checking on even a rudimentary level, Chris Wray is not a Democrat. He’s a Republican.
But whatever party Wray belongs to, if he is in fact in possession of a 66-year-old laptop, would he please share that with the rest of us? We all want to know. IBM wants to know. The Smithsonian wants to know. People who read comic books want to know. The only one who doesn’t want to know is Marge, who doesn’t want to stretch what little there is of her mind to encompass basic facts about when things actually happened in the real world.
