Mark Warner Deletes Tweet Predicting GOP Will Blame Winter Storm on Obamacare

by Andrew Johnson

While his state is getting hit by yet another massive snow storm, Virginia’s Democratic senator Mark Warner quipped on Twitter that he half-expected the state’s Republican party to blame the weather on Obamacare . . . and then deleted it 26 seconds later. The original tweet read:

“Just a matter of time: waiting for the @VA_GOP to claim this winter storm was caused by The Affordable Care Act. #Snowbamacare”

Politwoops, which collects politicians’ deleted tweets, says Warner then almost immediately deleted it and issued an apology, in which he blamed the joke on a staffer.
