Yesterday in the sanctum of the Dispatch Slack channel, a colleague flagged this tweet with the comment, “imagine seeing this if you aren’t terminally online.”
A normie voter, even a normie right-winger, would scratch their heads and wonder what it could mean. Was the official House Republican Twitter account praising Joe Biden? “BIG GUY” sounds like they’re calling him an alpha male. In isolation the tweet has an “O Captain, My Captain” vibe.
In context, less so.
