If people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, then maybe attorneys who lose 63 election lawsuits shouldn’t refer to athletic champions as “losers.”
Ellis was apparently miffed at two of President Joe Biden’s choices to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Thursday: Olympic gymnast Simone Biles and World Cup-winning soccer star Megan Rapinoe.
So, in the current GOP spirit of being automatically and arbitrarily against anything connected with Biden no matter how little connection it has to actual policy, Ellis took to Twitter to gripe that the nation’s highest civilian honor was being given to two champion athletes.
However, in her breathless effort to score culture war points, Ellis made a serious factual error by referring to Biles and Rapinoe as “losers.”
Twitter users quickly noted that Biles and Rapinoe each have a boatload of achievements while Ellis has a series of election suit losses, not to mention accusations of ethics violations.
Biles responded with a championship burn of her own.
Oh, and many couldn’t help but bring up Ellis’ unfortunate experience of being next to Rudy Giuliani during his infamous court fart.
Others let photos do the talking.
But one tweet may have summed up the reaction to Ellis’ attack on Biles and Rapinoe.
