The biggest Trump defender in politics made an utter fool out of himself after he filed a lawsuit against a parody Twitter account that is named after his “cow” and tweets cow-related insults about Rep. Devin Nunes. The California Republican filed a suit against Twitter, a Republican strategist, and two parody Twitter accounts, one that claims to be Nunes’s mother, and the other purporting to be Nunes’s cow. And all because they hurt his feelings. Nunes needs a safe place. It’s almost as if Nunes has never heard of the Streisand effect.
The account, “@DevinCow,” had 1,200 followers before the $250 million suit was filed, and Nunes has 395,000 followers. And now, “Devin Nunes’ cow” has more followers than Nunes has accumulated and the numbers are still rising, making a fake cow more popular than the California Republican.
And numerous other accounts have been created to mock Nunes. Here are a few examples:
My son Devin was always a good, smart boy.

Nunes can’t sue the entire Twitterverse. Nunes claims that Twitter served as “a portal of defamation” by allowing parody accounts of his mother and his imaginary cow to exist on the platform. He further argued that the parody accounts caused him to win by a narrower margin.
One could almost say that Nunes is a hypocrite.

So, the Internet did its thing to support a fake cow over Nunes.
