Go onto Twitter and pull up the blue check account of a politician and see what they Tweeted on the 4th of July.

AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, Pete Buttigieg had no Tweets about Independence Day.

Ilhan Omar had one, that followed a long thread of her celebrating Somali Independence Day on July 1st.

Every Republican account I opened had at least one lengthy Tweet about Independence Day and most of them saying something about how awesome America is.

I know that Twitter is not the be all, end all of everything, but still, it is a tool that politicians use to connect with their constituents.

Make of this what you will.

Spread the love
