It’s April 1, so everyone’s on the lookout for April Fools’ Day jokes online, but Rep. Jackie Speier still managed to sting a few followers with her tweet about introducing a bill to keep President Trump off of Twitter without supervision.

She made it clear after only a couple a minutes that she was joking, but that didn’t stop people from wishing she was serious. Who’d benefit, anyway, if someone were given the authority to keep President Trump from pushing that Tweet button?

Now both Jackie Speier and George Takei are in the doghouse for making April Fools’ Day promises they’re not going to keep.
