That awkward moment when you're an incumbent Republican Congresscritter, running for re-election, and tweet out a picture of Hitler's troops to honor #DDay

Gonna guess @DrewFergusonGA / @RepDrewFerguson did Nazi that before tweeting?

[h/t @hayhaydrewdoo]
Too busy trying to weaponize patriotism to notice when you're honoring bona fide Nazis

Nah – Trumpists are loyal to Russians, not Germans

There hits a certain point where these people and their staffcritters get paid too much of our money to make "mistakes" like this IMO


Twitter's been a great heilp in fuhrering my Nazi pun repertoire

That too

But this would require knowing more about military history than just "I can use pics of troops to get re-elected"

Well played 👊 Hitl'l be a busy day on Twitter



Except his staff already admitted it was an error. So your defense of him is LOLable.

Try again. Troll better.

"Dan McLagan, spokesperson for Ferguson's campaign, said in a statement to The Hill that an intern from their digital company selected the image."

🗣: "AlL hE wAs RePrEsEnTiNg WaS wHaT oUr TrOoPs WeRe FiGhTiNg AgAiNsT"

Fairly certain Congresscritter Ferguson tweeting Nazi fanfic is what made it a story, but I appreciate you think I'm that influential 😘

I'm sure it would. Just as I'm sure they would have said that already if that's what actually happened.

See, the difference between you and me is that I don't fabricate stories in my mind to justify others' incompetence ❤️

Except your father didn't fight the Japanese in WWII, because you're a faceless troll who adopts whatever "facts" about your life you think will make you sympathetic in a debate

Try again. Troll better.

The latter. The media company doesn't run the Twitter feed.

Pretty sure your father is why Trump won, but I could be wrong

#Aмерикaпервая 👊

Son turns 20 in July, don't hate me because I'm punny 😝

It was until he left. I guess it's bedtime in Moscow

I admire everyone skilled with Nazi puns, Part 1

I admire everyone skilled with Nazi puns, Part 2

I admire everyone skilled with Nazi puns, Part 3

I kampf stop laughing 😂
Imperial Japan puns work too 😂

Holy hell was he really?


Had no clue it was the same guy. Fitting.


1️⃣ It's not mine

2️⃣ *you're


I didn't even realize the misspelling, was too busy trying to figure out howtf someone thought it was my D-Day pic

Now I understand why @senatorshoshana has so much fun demanding bribes

Sure, the first couple hundred times: twitter.com/search?q=witty…

Bingo 😉

Who needs jobs when you have grievances and social media?

Obamacare is garbage, and everything the Government does it has a natural and inevitable tendency to do poorly

It was real; there's a link from The Hill somewhere mid-thread where they blamed it on an intern

Had Dr. Ford given the same testimony in the same manner in court, you'd have a conviction. Prosecutors absolutely care about numbers; this would be an easy win, even without Kavanaugh's testimony.

Without diving into this particular case, this type of attorney letter is a stall tactic when you think you're going to lose on the merits
The latter. Assume this were a run-of-the-mill Title VII case; typically Plaintiff's attorneys strike at the point they have maximum leverage, which Ford had. You delay when you hope some external event will turn up useful info instead

She may very well be telling the truth. But the FBI is not going to investigate, because even if we assume she's telling the 100% truth, there's no *federal* crime that took place. It's a dodge.

The Case Where Everyone Loses Edition
Some folks were wondering what I was talking about when I tweeted this out yesterday

It was referring to a case where I'd be meeting with a client today

This one:

"Love of police brutality is strongly bipartisan. This is what happens when one party loves 'law & order' and the other one loves public sector unions."
Soooo you didn't read the linked story


Dems have always loved police brutality just as assuredly as Reps. Particularly white liberals who rely on police to keep the poors away.

And writing laws to cover up brutality? It's all aboard

In today's criminal justice news, the Balch Springs PD officer who summarily executed unarmed 15yo black boy #JordanEdwards – and then lied about it to cover it up – has been convicted of murder

Edwards was killed as he and friends peacefully drove away from a lawful house party
Our original thread on the extrajudicial summary execution without due process of Jordan Edwards is here, including the nonsensical police statement released after the shooting

No. A person being pardoned can refuse it, rendering it ineffective. That was the precise issue in Burdick v US, where Burdick refused to accept the pardon so he couldn't be compelled to testify
There is no exception for pardoning his own crime, that's a myth. He can absolutely pardon co-conspirators

Impeach and remove faster. There's nothing saying they couldn't do all of that in the span of minutes; the procedural requirements for an impeachment trial are a political question courts can't adjudicate. See Nixon v US (*not* US v Nixon)
