It Appears the Obama White House Also Targeted Political Opponents Via Twitter

The Trump White House raised a lot of eyebrows on Monday for targeting Senate Democrats on their immigration stance on Twitter.

The official White House Twitter account went after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and accused her of “supporting criminals” who cross the border as well as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for “supporting the animals of MS-13.”

Many were shocked by the sudden politicalization of the official White House Twitter account. However, this White House isn’t the first to use Twitter on its opponents.

Preserved on Twitter, the Obama White House also targeted folks on Capitol Hill.

There were plenty of attacks made against congressional Republicans, accusing them of “choosing tax breaks for millionaires over meals for seniors” and pressuring them to act on gun control.

They took aim at future-Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) over his criticism of the growing debt under President Obama as well as Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) by refuting various accusations made against the administration.
