Following up on censuring Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger while referring to the Capitol insurrection as “legitimate political discourse,” the Republican National Committee embarrassed itself again by posting an insulting President’s Day tweet that has drawn bipartisan backlash.
It was only earlier this month that the RNC issued that piece of anti-democracy propaganda in their continued support of Donald Trump and his lies about the 2020 Election and the violence committed in a scheme to keep him in power.
Now the RNC has resorted to issuing a President’s Day message that not only insults President Joe Biden, but also honors some of the most scandalus Republican presidents or Republicans who would not even be Republicans today.

The tweet noticably insults Biden and doesn’t include any other Democratic presidents, many of whom are considered among the greatest presidents we’ve ever had such as FDR, Kennedy, and Obama. It also leaves off Republicans like Grant and Teddy Roosevelt in favor of Nixon and Trump, who are rated among the worst and most corrupt presidents.
As any student of history should recall, Nixon resigned in disgrace for spying on the Democratic Party. He would have been impeached otherwise. Trump was impeached twice, first for extorting Ukraine in a scheme to open a scam investigation against Biden and his family, and a second time for inciting the January 6th insurrection. Reagan not only ballooned the national debt by rolling back taxes for the rich, he introduced trickle-down that has been crushing the middle class ever since. And that’s on top of the several scandals of his administration such as Iran-Contra.
George W. Bush dragged us into neverending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and presided over the beginning of one of the most severe recessions since the Great Depression. He also committed war crimes by allowing torture.
As for Lincoln and Eisenhower, both would not recognize the GOP of today and would likely reject it.
Twitter users on both sides of the political spectrum slammed the tweet.
They put Nixon there POSITIVELY, but not Biden.
And, of course, the @GOP would like you to think that Barack Obama never existed at all. https://t.co/gkygfu2ZHj

This is mostly juvenile and vulgar. But we are on the verge of war in Europe. It would be good if elected Republicans, GOP candidates, those who’ve served in Republican administrations–made it clear @GOP does not speak for what remains of a decent and patriotic Republican Party. https://t.co/78YSTmEYdS

Always keepin it classy, that @GOP.
Besides, if Abraham Lincoln were alive today they’d have censured him and called him a RINO. pic.twitter.com/QTSTP8c67j

Every day, the @GOP does or says something to make me feel really good about my decision two years ago to leave the Republican Party. Every single day. https://t.co/d0J5Rc2XLe

If Abraham Lincoln were alive today, you’d have censured him & called him a RINO.

Imagine drawing up a list of Republican presidents to admire that doesn’t have Grant or TR but *does* have Coolidge, Nixon, and Trump. https://t.co/654r7Po2GQ

What a humiliating self-own. Delete your account.

Indeed, the entire Republican Party should be deleted. It’s nothing but a disgraceful organization of traitors who willfully choose to ignore their own history and the history of our nation.
