Actress Jane Curtin’s Resolution to ‘Make Sure the Republican Party Dies’ Riles Twitter: ‘Jane, You Ignorant…’


During CNN’s New Year’s Eve coverage, comedian, actress, and SNL-alum Jane Curtin was one of many celebrities offering their resolutions for 2019. Most were silly or funny, some were tellingly self-involved (Megan Fox), but Curtin’s got the Twitter treatment after she resolved the destruction of the GOP.

“My New Year’s Resolution is to make sure that the Republican party dies,” said Curtin in her brief appearance.

Proving that at least some people were watching CNN’s coverage, Twitter took notice. A lot of positive reactions with blue checkmarks.

It wasn’t all cheers, though.

American Commitment president Phil Kerpen got the award for the most deftly referential insult, though.

If you’re not familiar (millennials), the catch phrase was “Jane, you ignorant slut.”

That phrase is (less deftly) in abundance (and misquoted or mis-attributed) on Twitter this first day of the year.

So meet the new 2019 Twitter, same as the old one.
