Elizabeth Warren and Trey Gowdy sparred over Twitter on Friday about Gowdy’s decision for retiring from Congress.
As you know, back in January 2018, Gowdy announced that it would be his last year serving in the congress. He had represented the state in the House of Representatives since 2010 and said at the time that he planned to return practicing law.
However, Elizabeth Warren stated today that Gowdy only retired because of the “fat lobbyist paycheck.”
“TGowdySC foamed at the mouth with power in Congress, then retired because he claimed he didn’t enjoy it. Now it’s clear: Trey Gowdy just wanted a fat lobbyist paycheck. That should be illegal.” she tweeted.
Gowdy immediately responded to this, saying that he was not planning on lobbying, now or ever.
“@ewarren I’m not lobbying. Not now. Or ever. Perhaps you were cracking open a beer when that was announced. Don’t mind your criticisms. Just be more sensitive to facts.” he tweeted.
Gowdy’s response is pure gold. No wonder Warren had no comeback for this. He shut her down with only one tweet. Amazing.
What are your thoughts on this folks?
Thank you for reading.
