Yesterday, it is safe to conclude Adam Kwasman had one of the worst political days of his life. After a hilariously tragic video where the GOP congressional candidate and Arizona state rep mistakenly thought a bus with YMCA kids were actual migrant children ready to “invade” Oracle, Arizona went viral (yes, even TIME covered it today), Kwasman’s Twitter profile is trying to move on….
I'll be at the Concerned Citizens for America meeting tonight, 6:30 to 8:30, 55 Rojo Drive, Village of Oak Creek, AZ. Plz join us. #AZ01

As you might expect, Twitter won’t let him:
@AdamKwasman can the kids from the YMCA camp come?

@AdamKwasman will there be brown children at the evening to yell at or do we need to provide our own

@adamkwasman when is the meeting for those of us concerned about YMCA campers?

@AdamKwasman I hope citizens express concern over your exploitation of children in an attempt to incite & enrage the anti-immigration crowd.

That’s just a sampling. Meanwhile on Kwasman’s Facebook page, things aren’t any better:
“The good news is… Your political career is over.”
“You need to grow a brain before you consider yourself for a leadership position. This is an all to redundant pattern of idiots who seek power, get a real job.”
“Nice job Idiot, you just scared a bus full of kids from the Y. M. C. A. but that’s good right, isn’t that what you want, to teach the next generation of Bigots. Signed AMERICA.”
“You’re running for congress and the best thing you can find to do with your time is go scream at and protest children? And you can’t even find the right ones to yell and scream at? So you lack moral character, are a terrible time manager, and you’re incompetent? Well played sir.”
Hit it, John: “Nobody Told Me There’d Be Days Like These.”
Kwasman needs to do a couple of things: 1) Offer and real and sincere apology. 2) Leave public office. 3) Give it up.
Anyone who is defending what he did yesterday really doesn’t get it and never will.
