Upon seeing beer delivered to the Capitol, a bunch of Democrats (including Nancy Pelosi) and reporters accused the GOP of throwing a beer bash to celebrate the House passing the AHCA.
Man these people are dumb.

It’s just ri-damn-diculous but that’s the name of the game for the Left and the media (same thing):
Cases upon cases of beer just rolled into the Capitol on a cart covered in a sheet. Spotted Bud Light peeking out from the sheet

See? CASES UPON CASES … and of course people took this seriously because well … dumb.
@ajjaffe Paul Ryan's getting so amped to relive the glorious college days when he could only dream of taking healthcare from millions!

When you really start going through threads like this you see how dark some of these folks are and how much they project on others.
It got worse.

What do you expect from a guy with this handle? Honestly we’re surprised Twitter hasn’t verified him yet. *eye roll*
@ajjaffe Surprised it's Bud Light. "Just voted to take away health care for millions? It's Miller time!"

Oh and Igor Volsky HAD to play his outrage card as well:
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
THESE FRAT BOYS ARE GONNA FUCKING PARTY AFTER STRIPPING 24 MILLION OF INSURANCE?!?!

Full capslock even.
It just got worse and worse:

You seriously have to wonder how these people are capable of getting themselves out of bed in the morning.
As we all know now this was not what happened and in fact several news outlets had to delete tweets …
It didn't happen. Igor doesn't care. https://t.co/49VfIhjBqZ

Of course Igor didn’t care, the ‘urban legend’ of a bunch of evil old white guys drinking beer and celebrating killing insurance for a bunch of poor people fits his narrative.
Even Nancy Pelosi got in on it; via The Free Beacon:
“Right now, the Republicans are having a beer party to celebrate one of the biggest transfers of wealth from working families to the richest people in our country,” she said in a press conference following the vote.
@igorvolsky Totally not at all why happened but you go ahead and lie about it.
— Velvet Sugar (@TMIWITW) May 5, 2017
Nope, it’s not what happened but that didn’t keep media outlets from reporting otherwise. CBSNews actually removed their tweet but we have Michael Shapiro, Ryan’s Communications Advisor, reacting to it.
This is completely and utterly false. Totally irresponsible to report this with zero evidence. https://t.co/lW6hvHRwiR

Zero evidence, like most everything the media reports these days.
