Bono is never one to be shy in letting us know all of his wonderful ideas on how to deal with all the world’s problems.
The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee brought in the U2 frontman to discuss what role foreign aid should play in stopping violent extremism.
And in usual Bono style – dealing with global issues in ways no-one wants or asks for (one dreadful song at a time) – he basically told members of Congress at Capitol Hill on Tuesday, ‘don’t worry guys, I’ve got this’ when it came to the growing refugee crisis and the fight against extremism.
Okay Bono, let’s hear it, what’s your masterplan to deal with ISIS?
And the first people that Adolf Hitler threw out of Germany were the Dadaists and surrealists. You speak violence. You speak their language. But you laugh at them when they’re goose-stepping down the street, and it takes away their power. So I’m suggesting that the Senate send in Amy Schumer and Chris Rock and Sacha Baron Cohen. Thank you.

Just, wow. Where do you even start with this? Do they all have previous fighting experience? Do they even speak Arabic? Would ISIS like any of their jokes? Sorry Bono, this seems rather poorly thought out.
Even Amy Schumer wants to know what the fuck is going on:
To be fair, he even told the subcommittee ‘don’t laugh’ before he told them their plan, so maybe in his heart of hearts he knows it sounds a bit mad, but he’s deadly serious about parachuting them in.
Sorry Bono, think you’re going to have to go back to the drawing board on this one.
