Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) on Thursday deleted a message posted to his Twitter account that mocked the GOP, calling it a “fail” on the part of his staff.
Politiwoops caught the original tweet, which read “Just a matter of time: waiting for the @VA_GOP to claim this winter storm was caused by The Affordable Care Act. #Snowbamacare”
Warner removed the tweet almost immediately afterward and wrote that the message was a “staff #fail.”
Oops. Staff #fail on a snow day. Removed as quickly as possible. Enjoy the rest of your snow day.
