The USA is weird. We all know this. The place has tried to prove itself as totally terrifying since, well, November 2016.
Still unconvinced? Take a look at this creepy ad campaign from Leah Vukmir, a Republican from Wisconsin vying for election to the Senate.
Bizarrely, she appears to think that casually sitting at a table in a darkened room with only a handgun for company is what the American people want - though judging by the news cycle, she might be right.
People on Twitter were understandably pretty disturbed.
Hey #Wisconsin, this person sitting alone in a dark room next to a loaded handgun wants to be our next senator.
