Early this morning, a Twitter war of sorts broke out between Trump and the folks on Morning Joe. Suffice to say it turned out like any other Twitter trolling incident … embarrassing for all parties involved.
Which would be fine if it didn’t include the POTUS.
Ben Sasse sent this subtweet:
Please just stop. This isn't normal and it's beneath the dignity of your office.

This could be about someone else in some high office tweeting stupid stuff …
Who are you tweeting about?

BUT we’re pretty sure it was about Trump.
Reactions to Sasse’s subtweet were understandably mixed:

We hear you Senator–TY!! We need people like you to keep speaking up. We know you're in a tough spot, but we need your voice now.
— Lisa 🖤 (@LisaAMoyer) June 29, 2017
Please challenge him in 2020!

Beneath dignity of the office, but not the man, that's the distinction here.

Sadly the Left used it as an excuse to troll the senator and attack the GOP instead of realizing he was speaking out regardless of his ‘tribe.’
You and your party colleagues knew he was a misogynist, a racist, a liar. You're right- he's defiling the office- and the GOP is to blame.

Because this is SO helpful.
Totally, but what about the healthcare bill?

Stop barking and start biting.

Says the account yipping.
Do the right thing, Senator. Country over party. Fight for democracy.
— Craig Beilinson (@cbeilinson) June 29, 2017
We’re not a Democracy.
He isn't mentally stable- what will it take for you guys to fully realize this???

Senator Lindsey Graham also called for Trump to stop bothering with trolls on Twitter:
Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.
— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) June 29, 2017
Stop chiding the idiot and FUCKING IMPEACH HIM.
— Patrick S. Tomlinson (@stealthygeek) June 29, 2017
Hey Patrick, the Senate doesn’t impeach people.
And honestly it seems this happens every time. Someone on the right speaks up about having concerns around Trump and instead of receiving support across the aisle they get trolled, shamed and attacked.
Which just keeps on feeding Trump.
And losing them elections.
