Irony Fail 2: Mugabe does it again

President Mugabe of Zimbabwe never fails to provide material for our Irony Fail series.  Yesterday he admonished the Zimbabwean people to respect democracy and not try to overthrow his government with violent means.  Ha!  How did he manage to talk about democracy with a straight face?  Here is his statement:

‘‘If you want to remove the government, wait for elections, not violent demonstrations, that is what democracy dictates.”

Yep, that’s Mugabe alright–advocate of peace and democracy! As Abdul Nassir (@abdulnassir21) tweeted in response, “Hilarious times to be alive.”
