Several of the Texas Democrats turned Twitter celebrities who been chronicling every minute of their privately-funded escape to Washington DC on a private jet for retweets and attaboys have contracted COVID.
And suddenly these former lawmakers now Twitter celebrities want us all to respect their privacy.
What a difference a few days make.
Why just last week, one of them tweeted about how wonderful it was getting recognized in Washington. He even tweeted a picture of his “fist” meal as a fugitive:
Another one, hoping to play the Victim, tweeted a picture of her underthings drying on a shower curtain.
Nothing says “respect our privacy” like blasting out a picture of your bra on Twitter.
These mediocre politicians were eating up their newfound fame as Twitter celebrities like a starving man eating his “fist” meal.
And now the “look at me, look at me, LOOK AT ME!!!” has been replaced by “Please respect our privacy.” As if we’re the ones who dragged them kicking and screaming into the spotlight.
You know, the whole Karmic retribution angle of this story is just chef’s kiss perfect.
A bunch of shallow, useless lawmakers so desperate to raise campaign cash and elevate their national spotlight turned themselves into Twitter celebrities dancing for retweets. The corporate news media celebrated them. Kamala Harris, her popularity in Texas already in the shitter, tripped all over herself to get photographed with them.
And then five of them test positive for COVID.
This stunt didn’t just backfire on them. It exploded like a gender-reveal gone wrong.
Is it any wonder they’re asking that we respect their privacy?
They wanted the attention. They reveled in the attention. And now that it’s blown up in their faces, they want us to stop paying attention to them.
The funniest part of this story is learning that Kamala Harris went to Walter Reed yesterday, but not because of rubbing elbows with Typhoid Texas, nope. It was just a routine medical check-up.
I mean who doesn’t have a totally mundane, run-of-the-mill, routine check-up … on a Sunday?
Boy, I’d hate to be one of Kamala’s staffers when she found out she hitched her wagon to a bunch of infectious Twitter celebrities.
Actually, I’d hate to be one of Kamala’s staffers.
I haven’t seen a publicity stunt go this terribly wrong since WKRP in Cincinnati dropped a bunch of turkeys out of a helicopter on Thanksgiving.
