Obama campaign co-chair Eva Longoria deletes retweet calling women and minorities ‘stupid’ for supporting Romney


As we noted in our post earlier today, a retweet isn’t necessarily an endorsement of the original tweet. But when that retweet mysteriously disappears into the memory hole after making the national spotlight, that’s another story.

As Twitchy noted this morning, actress and Obama campaign co-chair Eva Longoria apparently came across this gem in her Twitter timeline and decided it was something that her nearly 4.5 million followers needed to see.

It’s not the first time Longoria has deleted a retweet. Just last week, she retweeted actress Nancy Lee Grahn’s prison-rape assessment of the vice presidential debate, but that offensive retweet quietly disappeared too. We thought Hollywood types liked publicity, but perhaps not so much in this case.

Longoria hasn’t given an explanation why her retweet has been scrubbed from her timeline (we’ve preserved it here at Twitchy for posterity’s sake), and frankly, why should it be? Longoria herself has been traveling the country on Obama’s behalf, telling audiences that “there is no way you can vote Republican” if you’re a woman. Telling them how they can and can’t vote? What a great way to empower women!

Unless Longoria steps up with an explanation or apology, we’ll have to consider this part of a very sad trend. Nancy Sinatra recently caught heat from Twitter users after tweeting that “women who vote Republican are not paying attention” and urging them to “snap out of it.” Sinatra didn’t delete her tweet; rather, she chose to defend her views by proudly resorting to the “block and report for spam” intellectual defense.

Sinatra, of course, isn’t connected to the Obama campaign. Longoria is. She spoke at the Democratic National Convention and is a co-chair of Obama’s re-election campaign. And if Longoria thinks that deleting a retweet with no explanation and hoping it will just go away without consequences as people lose interest, then we’d say she’s the perfect surrogate for the president. Unfortunately for both, we remember, and will on Election Day.


After claiming a Twitter gremlin was retweeting from her account, Longoria issued a faux apology on Thursday.

    Here’s a revelation about Obama’s biggest fan.
    acting is so terrible, she was listed in IMDB’s top 25 terrible
    actresses. No wonder her husband cheated on such a twisted, bitter hag.
    Who would want to be around this skeletal waste of skin? She has also
    voiced her support of gender-based abortions funded by the taxpayer with
    such enthusiasm, one has to wonder if she and Scarlet get together and
    get off to the thought of dead, female babies. On a final note, she is
    about as relevant as Key Grip in ‘Paranormal Activity 2’, and nobody
    really cares what she has to say. Her husband clearly got bored of her
    quickly. haha

    I really do wish Eva the most horrible life, to
    match her ugly soul. Drug abuse and more sexual humiliations should
    cloud this dumb broad.

    • SineWaveII

      Hey “Key grip” is an important job, And it describes someone who works for a living and pays taxes. She’s even less relevant than that.

    This is unfortunate but absolute proof that President Obama was not elected for his abilities. He was elected for his pop-culture status. The last time I saw this happen in my lifetime was when Milli-Vanilli got an award for lip-syncing a hit song. Hollywood types need to remember that a President’s job is much more than the ability to narrate a good script. A President’s job is to lead with dignity, respect and honor. This particular administration has had more scandals, inconsistencies and flat out lies spread from within than any other administration I can recall INCLUDING Richard Nixon and George W. Bush. His economic policies have been more devastating than Jimmy Carter’s and his declaration of war absolutely unconstitutional, even by George W, Bush’s standards. I am thoroughly disgusted and when they try to continue to propagate the lies a month later in the debates (Joe Biden) about Benghazi… it is despicable. I wish George Patton was still alive.

As long as someone else writes the script, he sounds good delivering it…doesn’t matter if it’s particularly creative or helpful in terms of policy…he deliveres with excellent pitch… In twenty years there will be a commercial with O,” You might recognize me, I played a president on tv”

      Yeah, that’s what I was thinking… poor Eva. Her (apparently smart) husband dumps her and humiliates her, she comes up with a really stupid idea of having Obama lovers write all over their hands and take goofy pics of themselves and everyone mocks her stupid idea, then she acts like a bully and says (retweets) that women and minorities are stupid if they don’t vote for Obummer… and so she’s getting her skinny celebrity ass kicked because of that brilliant move. The next humiliation for Eva will be when Obama blames her (and scores of others) when he doesn’t get re-elected in November. Poor Eva…. it must suck to be her (or her husband…. or anyone associated with her…. )

  • Tim

    You know, it’s funny. Ms. Longoria appeared on a reality show, H8R, in 2011. The premise of this show was celebrities get to confront people who have negative things to say about them, or their stardom. Ms. Longoria was confronting a non-fan because he thought she was a bad actress and did things in her career and personal life that hid her Hispanic heritage. Ms. Longoria met the non-fan in a restaurant in which she had a financial interest and spoke with him about his opinion. They also watched a video in which he had plenty of negative things to say about the actress. She then got to explain to this non-fan about her life, career, philanthropy, worldview, and so on. She had the opportunity to explain why she did certain things and her philosphy of life. She demanded the opportunity to do that through this show. Too bad she doesn’t show the same respect to the women and minorities she just insulted for their beliefs, lives, careers and worldviews. http://www.tv.com/shows/h8r/episodes – check it out to verify

    Sounds like Eva had one too many apple-tinis at the Ritz-Carlton, and decided to get a little cheeky. Then she sobered up and tried to undo the damage.

    But this kind of abusive, profane and judgemental language is just par for the course for the Lefties. They are filled with contempt and hatred for anyone who disagrees with them. They exist in an echo chamber, believing that everyone thinks the way that they do.

    Thankfully, of all of the women and minorities that I know…very few will be voting for the Serial Liar-in-Chief. They don’t need koolaid-drunk, out-of-touch fearmongers like Eva Longoria to tell them what to do….and the choice couldn’t be more clear to them.

    Eva Longoria comes from a part of society that feels they are entitled. Do you know that Eva doesn’t pay for any of her clothes? She gets them all free. How many Latino’s get anything for free? Yet, she is hired by our failed president to harbor the Latin vote, claiming she understands their situation and can connect with them. Let me tell you, Eva is so far removed from her origins that if she took a DNA test, she’d end up being white!

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/VIPOAPYNMUE2BSCR6GRUVSG7IQ Bruce

    Eva Longoria and others like her are pretty. Pretty biased, pretty uninformed, pretty partisan, pretty disrespectful and pretty lacking in common sense. Look at Romney and what he has accomplished both in his personal life and as Governer. Look at what BO accomplished and compare the two. Ask yourself who would you trust to manage your money. Who would you trust to ensure your way of life.
    Just pretend there are no R or D. Just look at the two records and decide. Another example: If you are a hiring manager and they both presented their resumes, showing what experienced they have and their accomplishments, who would you hire? Leave politics out of it. Who would do a better job based on their current and previous records? When you vote, you are voting to employ the guy.
    For the life of me I cannot imagine why anybody would listen to the desperate rantings of a clearly troubled “pretty” actress who demonstrates such obviously poor judgment.
