Don’t attack Bernie Sanders. Just don’t.
The Texas Republican Party learned the lesson of Sanders’s sky high popularity the hard way this weekend, after a Twitter post of theirs slamming the Vermont Senator and former presidential candidate backfired hilariously.
The post, as you can see below, plays off the conventional accusation that all Sanders and his ilk want to do is “steal from the rich to give to the poor,” so to speak.
The post, which is a plea for cash on the part of the Texas GOP, includes a meme that has Bernie Sanders saying, “If I have one gallon of Blue Bell, and you have one gallon of Blue Bell — then I have two gallons of Blue Bell.”
Well, Sanders supporters showed up en masse in the comments section of this Thursday tweet, posting links to Texas chapters of the Democratic Socialists of America, among other things.
Check it out below.
Epic clapback, Sanders supporting-Twitter.
