Who cares

7:41 PM · Dec 27, 2020

Bah, humbug, it is.

Some of the responses:

Hey Don,

Your profile says you’re a proud grandpa. I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt (though it’s not mine to give) and say you didn’t know he was quoting his son.

Be a human and apologize. Show your grandkids how a stand up guy behaves.

Happy New Year.

Mr. Rone, if your grandkids are handling your tweets, you ought to inform them this type of response (“Who cares”) is petty and rude. At a minimum, whoever is tweeting these zingers should at least use punctuation. I’m left wondering who is “Who” or is it WHO?

He must have been a terrific teacher

You do, Don

Howdy, Don. I care. And apparently over 700 people who liked Jason’s tweet care. For context: That’s equivalent to more than half of the followers you have accumulated since Joining Twitter over six years ago. Take a page from the wife of your party’s leader… Be Best.

You seem nice, especially for a former teacher and pround grandpa.


I don’t know you but judging by your Twitter account, you seem like the kind of scum who needs to be voted out.

Apparently you do…cranky old bastard

Nice response to a kid. What’s your next act? Kicking a puppy?

Good grief crusty ol guy.

You sound like a great state rep…rude and pointless.

You’re an ass.

Are you 10 years old? Good hell dude, you’re ancient…. grow up.

Republicans are spiraling past the point of no return. They’re all throwing temper tantrums like little children because they’re cult leader lost.

This morning:

Jason Kander @JasonKander
A Republican elected official clumsily trolling my 7 year old son on twitter seems like the appropriate way to wrap 2020.
