BuzzFeed Politics has since deleted the tweet, but if you read it enough times, you understand that there’s nothing really wrong with it — except the phrasing. Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro wants to end adoption, and he wants to foster discrimination against LGBTQ people?

Here’s a screenshot:
We’re guessing, after reading it a few times ourselves, that he wants to end discrimination against LGBTQ people who want to adopt or foster a child. We’re wondering if the 34 likes are the number of people who read it that way in the first place or not.
Headline fail. https://t.co/TxGFXck54K

Watch this line show up in an opponent’s campaign ad eventually.
