YA novelist and actor Derek Milman really thought he owned Mike Pence with this tweet the other day:

And judging by the number of likes on it, a lot of people apparently agreed. But was it really as brilliant and biting as he believed? Not even remotely.
Ben Shapiro snarkily pointed out why:
Yes Iâ€™m sure Pence has never seen a gay guy before https://t.co/F5xSCYy41t

And that’s when National Review’s Kevin D. Williamson came in to finish the job:
Didn't he go to "Hamilton"? https://t.co/rD4uIpPWhF
