Sid Miller, Texas Republican Official, Calls Hillary Clinton ‘C-nt’ On Twitter

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller took to Twitter on Tuesday to call Hillary Clinton a “cunt.” The tweet was quickly removed, but not before it was retweeted multiple times. Miller initially blamed the message on hackers, then said it was a retweeting oversight.

According to Politico, Miller was celebrating a new poll that shows Trump ahead in Pennsylvania.

“TRUMP 44 Cunt 43,” Miller’s tweet read. “Go Trump Go!”

That tweet was scrubbed from Miller’s account soon after it appeared. Miller claimed he’d been the victim of hackers, writing, “@MillerForTexas HAS BEEN HACKED. The disgusting re-tweet has been removed and we have changed all account passwords. Be advised.”

That tweet was then erased as Miller and his staffers decided to go with a more believable story. In two subsequent tweets, Miller wrote, “The campaign was retweeting information today and inadvertently retweeted a tweet that they were not aware contained a derogatory term. The tweet was taken down as soon as possible. Commissioner Miller finds the term vulgar and offensive and apologizes to anyone who may have seen it.”

That excuse doesn’t really make sense, considering that the original “vulgar” tweet wasn’t a retweet. We know this because Twitter labels retweets, and Miller’s tweet included no such indication. Politico suggests that the tweet, which was manually posted, originated with “pro-Trump, alt-right account, @TheRickyVaughn.” Weirdly, Miller, or one of his staffers, copied the language of the first tweet, left the word “cunt” in there, but added the phrase “Go Trump Go!”

A Politico reporter got Miller on the phone, and he told the media outlet that someone in his office was responsible for the mistake.

“I can assure you I did not post that,” he said. “Maybe the staffers took a screenshot and posted that.”

Which is also funny—though not in a ha-ha way—since Miller recently made a big deal on Twitter about how he writes his own tweets. He also made fun of Hillary Clinton for not doing the same.

“#CrookedHillary needs a dozen people to check her tweets,” Miller tweeted. “My thoughts are my own. Healthy as a bull here. #wikileaks.”

The Texas Tribune notes that Miller “has previously had to answer for a post suggesting the United States nuke the Muslim world, and another comparing Syrian refugees to rattlesnakes.”

    The cult of ignorance and hate in this country is stunning.

    Ya ever notice that Republicans seem to think that only their fellow Republicans are paying attention to them?

      Yes, you hate & fear women; we already knew that, you’re a Trump supporter.

      In intelligent and polite society people realise that derogatory terms and ad hominem attacks detract from useful discourse.

      In Trumpland, there is no useful discourse. And the people revel solely in derogatory insults and ad hominem attacks (mixed with a soupcon of racism, bigotry and sexual assault).

      Of course you’ve characterized yourself as a woman-hater through your own words and posts.
      I guess you’ll fit right in.

    The little man was just giving his childish ego a boost by showing everyone how quick witted and clever he is at his best. Too bad he went further and also showed everyone that not only is he a liar but a really bad liar. He is another proud Republican.

    What he said was accurate so I’m assuming those that are unhappy are simply upset that he said it.

    After 5 yrs I decided to abandon my old work and I never felt this good… I started doing a job from comfort of my home, over a site I discovered online, several hours a day, and I make much more than i did on my office work… Last payment i got was for 9 thousand bucks… The best thing about this work is that now i have more free time with my family… http://chilp.it/8d93f4b
