Cannibalism run amok
This is old, but I just read it and it’s pretty bizarre:

Actually, Brown was speaking about the debt being passed on to future generations, not suggesting that Medicare or Social Security causes old people to eat human flesh. Here’s the full quote from a speech she gave in 2000 before the Institute for Justice:
Um, ok. Who the hell would think that ad says old people are cannibals? “Balanced” journalism gone crazy, I guess.
