Happy Birthday, Governor Snyder! He turns 58 today. RT & leave a message to wish him a happy birthday!— Governor Rick Snyder (@onetoughnerd) August 19, 2016
As most of us know, Twitter can be a cruel, cruel place, and this tweet is the equivalent of dangling meat in front of a pack of wolves. Did no one on staff think to say maybe having him casually kayaking in a body of water was a poor choice of photo?
Tact is not his staff's strong suit, as we've seen before, but this is just asking for it. As expected, Twitter did not disappoint. Here's a random smattering of some of the wishes the Gov's received.
@onetoughnerd Dear Staff, You seriously put a picture of him on the WATER? The lack of self-awareness is incredible....— Laura v2.0 (@auberginefedora) August 19, 2016
@onetoughnerd You're an immoral criminal with the deaths of your citizens on your hands. Why you haven't been indicted is beyond me.— (((T'Kutt))) (@DukeOfVinings) August 19, 2016
@onetoughnerd Hope that water isn't poisoned like Flint's drinking water.— EJG2 (@ejg2) August 19, 2016
@onetoughnerd this is pretty fucked up. Even for you(r) staff.— Nate (@ammadien) August 19, 2016
@onetoughnerd jailjailjailjail for the smooth criminal.— John Federico (@jjfedpit) August 19, 2016
He did get one nice one, though.
@onetoughnerd Happy Birthday, Governor. Thank you for your serviceß— Liz (@Chasing_Liz) August 19, 2016
