Marco Rubio was less than impressed with the Politico piece about his walking back criticism of the GOP tax law … and it seemed he blamed an intern for writing it.
Although written by intern at Politico, this article is a reminder of how difficult it can be to discuss public policy in political press. Not only did I not back down on tax cut, I doubled down & added detail for rationale https://t.co/4NTDOxcEju

Man, interns take a lot of flack.
blaming the intern is so 1990's. ? https://t.co/6CGPERpNqx

Low blow from Monica … oh wait.
Calm down, it was just a JOKE.
Ok, fine, this editor will go sit in the corner for a bit. Sheesh.
Admit it, this is the most TWITTER thing, maybe ever.

Right? Why bother, Twitter is won, the Internet is over.
Everyone go home.

It was pretty damn good, even if you agree with Rubio that the Politico piece was suckage; this was a dunk of epic proportions for Twitter.
Lol in the 90s, I never could have guessed 20+ years later I'd want to be bffs with Monica Lewinsky, but here we are

We’re not sure we’d go as far as to say we’d want to be bff’s with her, but that we are writing about a tweet she wrote 20 years later says a lot about our culture. And that may not exactly be a good thing.
oh my god monica ??

Wonder if in 20 years Stormy Daniels will be on Twitter (or whatever these young people are using then) to slam some senator.
