Twitter Trolls Republican Congressman’s Silly “Rather Die in Battle” Tweet

Congressman Paul Gosar might not be a familiar name to you. But thanks to a very silly tweet, he’s started a meme on Twitter that you’ll definitely have seen by the end of the day.

The congressman is a doctor (his official page relates that used to own “his own dental practice”), a Republican representative from Arizona, and a proud “MAGA” who touts that in his bio as well as being called “mean and evil” in his Twitter bio. Sounds like a peach. Which makes this ridiculous Tweet all the more mock-able.

Yeah, Paul. I don’t think you’ll be heading out to a “glorious” battle any time soon.

Twitter, never one to let an inane tweet from a MAGA ghoul go un-mocked, got right on it with the parodies, with hilarious results.
