TX Governor Goes After Anti-Trump Elector on Twitter: ‘You’re Fired!’

by Sierra Marlee | December 20, 2016 7:34 pm

Texas Governor Greg Abbott took to social media to announce his displeasure with Electoral College elector Chris Suprun.

Suprun refused to cast his vote for Trump and went on a Twitter rampage against the President-elect. Of course, he did so in a very immature manner, but what do you expect from someone who uses social media to do all of his fighting?

On the 19th, Suprun conceded that all of his big talk ended up doing absolutely nothing and instead invoked a Ronald Reagan quote to make him seem like less of a jerk. (Spoiler: It didn’t work.)

On today's setback:

We fought, we dreamed, and the dream is still with us. – Ronald Reagan, 1976#ElectoralCollege[2]

That was when Abbott jumped on Twitter:

This charade is over. A bill is already filed to make these commitments binding. I look forward to signing it & ending this circus. #txlege[4] https://t.co/SaBWTWwkxS[5]

Today, he was a little more direct:

@TheChrisSuprun[7]: YOU'RE FIRED!!!

— Greg Abbott (@GregAbbott_TX) December 20, 2016[8]

Suprun replied with a terribly unoriginal quip:

You mean I resigned.

— Christopher Suprun (@TheChrisSuprun) December 20, 2016[9]

And kept going:

PS Does this mean I can release tapes of your staff ignoring threats against Presidential Electors?

He only upholds the Constitution when it's convenient. #Sad[11] He plays into every caricature of GOP not respecting individual liberty. https://t.co/H3Pf1EOe39[12]

Nothing says impotent like being "fired" after casting my ballot. @GregAbbott_TX[14] more interested in political points than policy. https://t.co/7H3BunxsMQ[15]

Sad little fellow. why don’t you fade into obscurity with some dignity, okay?
