Poker star Erik Seidel: ‘Drop a drone on Wayne LaPierre’; Update: Tweet deleted
Apparently, NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre’s appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” did not sit well with professional poker player Erik Seidel.
Many of his followers were not impressed with the comment.
@erik_seidel your a fucking idiot..stick with poker.

@erik_seidel Hm. How’s that exactly?

Seidel then attempted to apologize for walk back the tweet by criticizing those who didn’t catch his figurative language.
Thought it was obvious I was being figurative, but apparently not judging from some of the response

@erik_seidel figurative or not, it was completely and utterly irresponsible. You should apologize,not belittle others for not “getting it”.

@erik_seidel It was either a joke or serious. Either way it doesn’t make you look good.

The Left’s hypocrisy never fails to make an appearance.
Evidently Seidel doesn’t know that Twitchy is forever.
