As Twitchy told you last night, GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch and his staff hit a home run with this glorious tweet inspired by Elizabeth Warren’s DNA test disaster:
These DNA tests are quite something. pic.twitter.com/tCHmW7pJbj

We all thought it was effing hilarious. But not Daily Beast politics editor and MSNBC contributor Sam Stein. He didn’t see anything funny about Hatch’s joke. In fact, he found it downright offensive:
When they speak of how the old senate had more civility, recognize that Hatch has been there for decades and does stuff like this https://t.co/RG01kQChov

Stuff like what, Sam? Laugh at himself for being old? Yeah, how dare he!
Uh, he’s making fun of himself for being old

Forget it, Sam's rolling

Heck yeah, they are.
*quietly* i thought it was funny

It's a perfect good joke. It's not even mean-spirited. I chuckled. 😁

He’s making fun of himself. How is this a bad thing?

Yes. Joking with people is totally uncivil.

Wow, a self-deprecating tweet (and funny as hell, too). Scandalous!

This is the example you’re using to discuss lack of civility? You’re cancelled sis
— Christopher Woods (@kingcwoods) October 16, 2018
Actually this is quite funny. I support Warren, but what she’s doing here is ridiculous.

You must be fun at parties.

Did someone delete your sense of humor?

You appear to have 1/1032nd of a sense of humor there, pumpkin.
