Former 2020 Dem presidential candidate Andrew Yang seems a little miffed that he wasn’t invited to speak at this year’s DNC:
I’ve got to be honest I kind of expected to speak.

Shhh. Let him bitch about it:
a strange thing to say out loud https://t.co/DDZXr8Oj2P

If you recall, Yang sent the same sort of snarky tweet right before Biden announced that he would pick a woman for the ticket:
Wow Joe just committed to a woman as VP. I like it. Though he didn’t mention that to me when we spoke. 😀

The dude got zero delegates and dropped out after New Hampshire. What did he expect?
It's this kind of sharp political acumen that brought Yang a grand total of zero delegates. https://t.co/NyyhzXAcrg

And he didn’t exactly ingratiate himself with Team Biden:
New York must reinstate its Democratic presidential primary in June, a federal judge ruled, after a lawsuit by the former candidate Andrew Yang https://t.co/W4UoRFRJcA

Plus, don’t Dems *need* to hear from John Kasich?

Well, he was an unwanted novelty:
The fact that @AndrewYang isn’t speaking at the DNC is absolutely inane. The national party treated him like an unwanted novelty and *within months* his signature campaign proposals were urgently relevant on a national level.
They NEVER learn. https://t.co/HGfcT78KZ2

Maybe they’ll add him once the VP pick is announced?
