Here’s a tweet that made a tiny splash Tuesday, but before we could write about it, it had been deleted. Legal Insurrection has the story, however, and it’s a pretty good one.

The best part is the video was tweeted by the account @TopRopeTravis, who says in his Twitter bio he’s the director of veterans outreach for the Draft Beto campaign. Was this supposed to be opposition research against Bernie Sanders to clear the way for a Beto O’Rourke run on the Democratic ticket?
Like we said, the tweet with the video was deleted, but it read, “NEW: Recently discovered footage from 1988 reveals a shirtless Bernie Sanders with his wife, Jane, on their honeymoon in the USSR, drunkenly signing ‘This Land Is Your Land’ with a group of presumed Soviets.”
It’s no secret that Sanders and his wife honeymooned in the Soviet Union, but video of him without his shirt could keep voters away from the polls.

The tweet’s gone, but the video’s up on YouTube. Here it is, if you hate yourself enough to watch it:
