Rapper Kanye West, Tesla founder Elon Musk and former President Donald Trump were mockingly dubbed “The Three Stooges” after a tweet from House Judiciary Committee Republicans went awry.
Republicans on the committee are led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
On Thursday, their Twitter feed shared the following:
Kanye. Elon. Trump.

It’s unclear why, although all three men have been in the news this week ― West, who now goes by the name Ye, for wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt at Paris Fashion Week, Musk for attempting to resurrect his purchase of Twitter and Trump for being, well, Trump.
The post puzzled many and brought to mind Larry, Moe and Curly from the long-running comedy troupe.

Larry, curly and Moe, most definitely!!! 🤣🥲
