Have to admit...I figured a shooting would be one area that someone wouldn't joke about. Guess I was wrong.
Would politicking surprise you?
Tim Griffin (R): Gun shots outside the Capitol. 2:23 pm
Time Griffin (R): Stop the violent rhetoric President Boama, Chuck Shumer and Nancy Pelosi. #Disgusting. 2:24 pm
You are the one disgustingl y"politicking" : by wrongly assuming a Twitter message likely pre- packaged and previously scheduled to be sent at a certain time, means that Cong Griffin was referring to the current shooting !!!
You should take it up with Griffin:
Here's the original tweet, which Griffin has since deleted:
Stop the violent rhetoric President Obama, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. #Disgusting
— Tim Griffin (@TimGriffinAR2) October 3, 2013
Later, Griffin tweeted that he didn't intend to blame Democrats for the situation.
"The shooting today is a terrible and inexcusable tragedy and an act of terroism," Griffin said. "No one but the shooter is to blame. I tweeted out of emotion but agree that the timing was not helpful."
And how do you "pre-package" a tweet to be sent out at a certain time?
I've been trying to figure that out for a while now.
