Rand Paul Forgot To Delete Tweet Calling For People To Use 2nd Amendment To ‘Shoot At The Government’

A prime example of this disconnect is Sen. Rand Paul. He was at the baseball practice when shots began to ring out. He was unharmed, but experienced the horror.

Amazingly, he never bothered to delete the tweet. (We took screenshots in case he decides to now.)

The political climate of June 2016 was, in some ways, even more heated than it is now. By that point in Obama’s presidency, it had become clear that the right’s boogieman was not going to be impeached and that his two terms in office had been overwhelming successful. Confronted with that reality, conservatives grew hysterical. Even in the months before he left office, Obama was being labeled by right-wing media as “tyrannical.”
