Amanda Clayton, of Lincoln Park, Michigan, come on down, you’re this weeks Idiot! Congrats you moron. If you haven’t heard bout this fool, let me break it down for you real quick. In September 2011, Ms. Clayton won $1 million on the game show “Make Me Rich!” She took out her winnings in a one time payment lump sum of $700,000. After taxes that broke down to around $500,000. So what’s the problem with all this you ask? Well, she decided that the money wasn’t enough and since she was unemployed she’d continue to get public assistance for food (approximately $200 a month). Really lady?! You just won a million bucks, and you’re taking money from the government that was helping you out when you had nothing? That’s not a dick move at all (sarcasm).
“I thought that they would cut me off, but since they didn’t, I thought, maybe, it was OK because I’m not working.”
When asked if she thought it was ok for her to still be getting funds from the state she replied:
“I kind of do. I have no income, and I have bills to pay. I have two houses.”
So you’re unemployed, and you have not one, but TWO houses. How bout you sell one of them, and BOOM, you have money. Oh or maybe you shouldn’t have bought a new house and new car with your winnings since you have bills to pay. Oh and good ole state of Michigan, how are you not on top of this? How do you let this continue to happen 6 months. Step your game up dammit! The downfall of society starts with people like Ms. Clayton. People no longer know what’s right. You can’t fix stupid. So Amanda Clayton, here’s an award you can put up in one of your houses. Congrats again, you are my ‘Idiot of the Week!’ Watch the video below to be disgusted in humanity.
