Senate Democrats continue to embarrass themselves, this time using children as props for an anti-Trumpcare message that even their supporters said was lame.
The Senate Democrats Twitter account tweeted out a gif labeled, “What do we think of the Trumpcare bill?” as a group of children and adults do a “thumbs down” motion.

The gif featured the “Little Lobbyists,” a group of children with disabilities whose parents take them to Capitol Hill to lobby on various political issues.
Even supporters chided their party for the terrible gif.
More cringeworthy garbage from the impotent hacks bungling Dem messaging. Give us useful policy, not empty gestures

As a former Senate staffer, whomever reads this, please step up your social engagement. This GIF is trash. Issue is not cutesy or funny.

If you’re gonna use kids as political props maybe try NOT doing it in the most awkward and ineffective way possible?

Lmao how are you guys so bad at messaging

Democrat here. Please don’t use kids in this way. They’re too young to know anything about this stuff. Same for religion. Gross.
