Turning Point USA Apologizes for Funny Tweet
Earlier today, Turning Point USA posted a tweet outlining the tax plans of both Bernie Sanders (who lost) and Donald Trump (who won) with the hashtag #SocialismSucks.
Adam Weinstein, a bald man who previously worked for Gawker and Mother Jones quote-tweeted:
“The best grift in America is convincing rich old-man conservatives to give you their money so you can “reach” young people with an old-man message.”
The reply from a Turning Point staffer was hilarious, and so it had to be deleted:
“The best ‘grift’ this morning is having a guy named Weinstein criticize young people for wanting fewer hands in their pockets. Too good.”
Please give whoever is running your social media a raise.
Not long after, Turning Point apologized for cracking the best joke they’ve made in months:
A reply from our account had a joke made in poor taste referencing Harvey Weinstein. The incident has been deleted & handled. We apologize to anyone who read the tweet as derogatory in any other way. We hope to continue positive dialogue in the fight against big government!

After apologizing, Turning Point’s director Charlie Kirk received kudos from the fellas over at the Reagan Battalion.
