Rep. Devin Nunes (R. CA) is currently in the news for some fairly hilarious reasons, but he’s also making sure that he gets in his fair share of hypocrisy.
The California lawmaker is suing a parody Twitter account called Devin Nunes’ Cow for defamation. Yes, you read that correctly – Nunes is suing a fake Twitter cow. It’s always worth noting that before the news came out, the cow only had a little over 1,000 followers, and now, it has half a million.
But Nunes, of course, because he’s a Republican politician, is a major hypocrite. Recently uncovered video from 2010 shows Nunes defending a group of protestors who were screaming the ‘n-word’ at Rep John Lewis, saying “I think people have every right to say what they want. If they wanna smear someone, they can do it.”
So, Devin, it’s OK for people to yell racial slurs at a congressman, but not for a fake cow to hurt your feelings? What a snowflake.
