Never Trump Republican congressman threatens cartoon cat on Twitter

Never Trump Republican and outgoing congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) threatened violence against a popular cartoon cat Twitter account named @catturd2 (or commonly known as Catturd) over a Ukraine meme.

Catturd is an anonymous right-leaning satirical social media account and has slightly over 1 million followers. The account was frequently retweeted by the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Catturd is also known for leading a #CatturdForTwitterCEO campaign on Twitter. Both Catturd and Elon Musk retweet each other’s Tweets.

Kinzinger was one of ten Republicans led by Rep. Liz Cheney who voted in favor to impeach President Donald J Trump, charging him with “incitement of insurrection” for his alleged role in the Capitol Building protest.

Below is the tweet that triggered Rep. Kinzinger to respond with the following reply, “Literal evil. If I met you in person it would not end well… for you. Sicko. Trolls who have never done a thing in their life pretend to be patriots and laugh at real warriors.”

In typical Catturd fashion, the response to Kinzinger was degradingly comical. “Sitting congressman threatens violence against a U.S. citizen over laughing at a meme they found funny. 😂 I can’t stop laughing at this infant.”

Catturd then insinuated that Congressman Kinzinger was “drunk tweeting.”

Other social media influencers then took to Twitter to mock Kinzinger.
