Some people aren’t good at metaphors.

Davram Stiefler of The Good Liars, a comedy duo that goes to gatherings of conservatives and asks the MAGA faithful pointed questions, talked to a man at a rally about his top political issue.

“No gun-free zones,” the man said, wearing an “All rifles matter” t-shirt and a “Trump 2024” cap.

“More guns?” responded Stiefler.

“Yeah. You can’t fight fire with water. Got to fight fire with fire.”

“You can’t fight fire with water?” Stiefler asked, since that’s generally the substance used to fight fires.

“Depends on what’s in the fire,” the man said.
