Somebody at NBC News was spotted punching the “delete” button after a story about Gov. Ron DeSantis sending illegal immigrants to Martha’s Vineyard. The tweet quoted another person offering up a peculiar analogy.

See if you can guess why the tweet was taken down:

Yeesh:

null

Perhaps somebody at NBC News read that wrong the first time.

And that’s from an advocate for the “asylum-seekers”? Worst. Advocate. Ever.

As you can see, the tweet is gone, but the internet is forever:

The “trash” part as of now is still in the story at the NBC News site:

After Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis sent two planes of mostly Venezuelan asylum-seekers to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, advertising executive Max Lefeld slammed the move as a political stunt.

“It’s like me taking my trash out and just driving to different areas where I live and just throwing my trash there,” said Lefeld, a Venezuelan American who’s a founding member of the Casa Venezuela Dallas foundation, which helps recent refugees.

That’s certainly a bizarre way to try and make DeSantis look bad.
