Citizen Makes Sure Dems ‘Never Forget’ Humiliating Supreme Court Tweet They Deleted

“I saw you deleted this tweet so I printed it out and dropped it off at your building so you never forget about it.”

After Senate Democrats deleted an embarrassing tweet on Sunday, a conservative commentator printed it out and brought it to the capital so, in his words, they would “never forget about it.”

The shenanigans started on Friday, when the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee posted a Twitter poll asking whether users wanted more Supreme Court justices like Ruth Bader Ginsburg or like Brett Kavanaugh. The results were not what the Democrats had been hoping for.

Over 70 percent of the some 240,000 votes went to Kavanaugh, compared to less than 30 percent for Ginsburg.

Ruthless conservative mockery commenced, with Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas, triumphantly tweeting a screen grab of the poll. “#SundayMotivation,” he commented.

Later Sunday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee – which is responsible for getting Democrats elected to the Senate – deleted its tweet, leading to further trolling.

Caleb Hull, a right-wing messaging guru, took the humiliation campaign offline by plastering a printout of the post outside the committee’s office, which is located across the street from the Senate. Then, he brought it back online by tweeting photos of his work.

“Hey @DSCC,” he commented. “I saw you deleted this tweet so I printed it out and dropped it off at your building so you never forget about it.”

Democrats have gotten used to losing to Republicans on the judiciary in recent years. Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court pick, was confirmed by the Senate last October despite liberals’ best attempts to disqualify him over allegations of sexual misconduct in his youth. The court now has a solid 5-4 conservative majority.

Republicans’ remaking of the judiciary has extended well beyond the Supreme Court, too. On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., celebrated the confirmation of Trump’s 100th nominee to the federal judiciary, Southern District of Florida Judge Rodolfo Armando Ruiz II.

Meanwhile, a number of conservatives have responded to the Senate Democrats’ poll by voicing support for U.S. Seventh Circuit Court Judge Amy Barrett, whom Trump is reportedly planning to appoint to the Supreme Court in the event Ginsburg’s seat on the left side of the bench becomes available.
