Internet Smacks Jason Chaffetz For Racist Tweet Against Elizabeth Warren

Jason Chaffetz went to Disneyland. While there, he thought he'd be a smart aleck.

Jason Chaffetz went to Disneyland today! While he was at Disneyland, Chaffetz decided it would be cute and snarky to tweet this:

Because nothing says cutting-edge snark like a swipe at Elizabeth Warren, amirite?

The replies were...lit.

I liked this one:

This one gets the last word:

This is so tired. The whole Elizabeth Warren/Pocahontas/23AndMe mess is racist, affirms racist tropes, and in the end, makes no difference to anything. Nothing. For Republicans to ignore President Pussygrabber so they can verbally beat up Elizabeth Warren with bogus fauxtrage is just the height of cynical emptiness.

But one thing is true: Any rhetorical high ground they may have enjoyed after Senator Warren played into Trump's hands was lost with this. We're back to high school hijinks from the GOP, and she can just drop it and move on.
