A completely innocent headline made Trump supporters completely lose it


A NPR story warning about the health risks of sitting down for too long was bad news for some readers.

But not for the reason you might think.

The headline stated:

Get Off The Couch Baby Boomers, Or You May Not Be Able To Later

The article was referring to research warning that sitting down for 13/14 hours every day increases the risk of disease.

But some people took this as an insult, thinking that the article was calling anyone born between 1946 and 1955 lazy.

These people obviously didn't read the article. But they sure didn't like being called lazy. Which is rather ironic when you think about it.

A large number of these people are also, it seems, big Trump supporters.

But everyone else thinks it's hilarious.
