Early this morning, the Twitter account for Senator Steve Daines of Montana was shut down for reasons you won’t believe. It’s insane. Senator Daines is the Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC).
His Twitter was shut down because he posed for a photo with his wife, Cindy, and an antelope. That’s it. The antelope appears serene as Mr. and Mrs. Daines sit with it.
Since his suspension this morning for reasons many felt were unnecessary and strange, Sen. Daines has since regained access to his Twitter account and made a formal statement in which he says he spoke to Elon Musk personally about the reinstatement, and thanked him for his work to get the Senator his account back.
Many are left wondering how a picture of Sen. Daines hunting triggered an unjust ban, and why things of this nature never happen to Democrats.
Here are some of the reactions from the GOP as Danies’ Twitter was shut down.
