Taliban Leader Wears ‘Death to the West’ Tux to Met Gala

Taliban leader Abdul Ghani Baradar has received both praise and accusations of hypocrisy after photos emerged of the militant wearing a “Death to the West” tuxedo while appearing at the star-studded Met Gala in New York City.

Baradar, who flew in for the event on a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter, used the $35,000-per-ticket celebration to rail against America’s materialistic capitalism.

“The reason America has failed in Afghanistan is because it has become too comfortable in its own wealth and decadence,” Baradar said shortly after threatening to behead a cocktail waiter for bringing him lukewarm champagne. “That’s why I am wearing this jacket, to make a statement about how much I hate capitalism and loathe the materialistic excess of America.”

Baradar, who also sported a $45,000 Tag Heuer wristwatch, went on to have three members of the wait staff executed after a waiter gave the last mac-and-cheese bite to Megan Thee Stallion.

The Taliban leader earned praise from some celebrities for his bold attire.

“A lot of people say, ‘Death to America’ or ‘Death to the West,’” said singer and actress Bette Midler. “But by wearing that tux, Baradar showed that he means it.”

Some on Twitter said that the money he spent on the elaborate attire could have been put to better use helping the people of Afghanistan, or at least buying military equipment to battle Western-backed forces. But others countered that there were many at the Gala who were much worse than the terrorist leader.

“At least he makes his money through legitimate means, like selling opium or US military equipment,” one Twitter user stated. “It would be much worse if he were paying for that shit with our taxpayer money.”

Drug Kingpin Says $1 Million Found Stashed In His House Is A ‘Blind Trust’

A man who was found to have a hidden stash of over a million dollars in unmarked bills has told police he can’t explain the origin of the money, given it is a blind trust.

Asked by detectives to explain how he earned the money, the man – who is alleged to be the head of a drug trafficking network – was apologetic. “I couldn’t tell you mate, sorry,” he told police, shrugging his shoulders. “As a potential beneficiary I have no access to information about the conduct and funding of the trust”.

He said the origin of the money was anyone’s guess. “I’m just sitting there minding my own business and the next thing you know I’ve got a mil in cash stashed behind an air conditioning vent. No idea where it came from. If I knew I’d tell you. But … unfortunately, you know, it’s a blind trust, so …”

He stressed everything was above board. “What I can tell you is that all of the contributions were made to me, or were for my benefit, in a purely personal capacity”.
