Lt. Gov. Mandela Barnes, a classic millennial, loves social media.
Indeed, Barnes — a Democrat challenging Wisconsin Republican Sen. Ron Johnson — has tweeted more than 18,400 times since joining Twitter a decade ago, an average of nearly five tweets a day…
“We should drastically reimagine society, our communities, and what quality of life actually means in a moment like this,” Barnes tweeted in March 2020, just as coronavirus was starting to spread.
Barnes once said he “really could not care less about a 2nd Amendment ‘right’” to bear arms.
I really could not care less about a 2nd Amendment “right”. Bear arms all you wish, but you should pay for your mishandling.
