Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat and Chair of the Democratic National Committee, only offered up a “have a nice day” before she climbed into a black SUV and closed the door, when I asked about DNC staffers’ profane tweets after the Supreme Court released it’s ruling to uphold the healthcare law mandate as a tax. (listen here).
Patrick Gaspard, executive director of the DNC, and DNC New Media Outreach Director Greg Greene both tweeted out profane messages after the ruling was announced on Thursday morning. Gaspard tweeted, “it’s constitutional. Bi***es.” Greene tweeted, “Overheard in the office: “TAKE THAT MOTHER******S!!”
Washington DC’s CBS local affiliate reported Gaspard apologized 30 minutes after initial tweet in another tweet saying, “I let my scotus excitement get the better of me,” Gaspard said. “In all seriousness, this is an important moment in improving the lives of all Americans.”
