Critics had been greater than puzzled by the posts:
They did not discontinue The Cat within the Hat or Green Eggs and Ham and Joe Biden had nothing to do with an organization’s determination to cease publishing racist stuff.
As I requested on my present final night time: can Cruz get by way of any week/day with out saying one thing ridiculous or dishonest? https://t.co/bNuX5flZhw
