If people in glass houses shouldn’t be stones, so maybe lawyers who lose 63 election cases shouldn’t call sports champions “losers.”
But Jenna Ellis, a lawyer for Donald Trump’s failed re-election campaign who helped push his election lies to court, apparently didn’t get that memo, based on a tweet she posted Thursday night .
So, in the current GOP spirit of being automatically and arbitrarily against anything Biden-related, no matter how little it has to do with actual politics, Ellis took to Twitter to complain that the country’s highest civilian honor was awarded to two champion athletes.
However, in his breathless effort to score Culture War points, Ellis made a serious factual error by calling Biles and Rapinoe “losers.”
Twitter users were quick to note that Biles and Rapinoe each have a boatload of accomplishments while Ellis has a string of election lawsuit losses, not to mention accusations of ethics violations.
