    Oops.

    The Republican Party of Texas on Monday deleted a tweet that appeared to praise Hillary Clinton for “how she handles tough situations.”

    The tweet came in response to one from the Clinton campaign that said, “Just imagine Donald Trump in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. We can’t afford that kind of risk.”

    The Texas GOP account then posted the famous Pete Souza photo of Clinton, President Barack Obama and other top officials in the Situation Room during the mission that killed Osama Bin Laden and said, “No need to imagine #Hillary facing a real crisis…we know how she handles tough situations.”

    The tweet was deleted, but not before it was mocked online and The Dallas Morning News’ Tom Benning took a screenshot of it.

    The Republican Party of Texas did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Hardly. But who knows why they tweeted it then decided it was a bad idea. There is no shortage of entertainment this election

    This could be misconstrued, as it was, and they don't want that can of worms. Too late though.

    I didn't say it was just you. You posted an article.

    You shouldn't believe it though.

    I think it was a dig at her about Benghazi but they then realized that the pic they posted was them reviewing Bin Ladens death.

    I can't speak for them, but I see this for what it is. Deleted emails, "I don't know"s, "what difference does it make"s, etc....

    Why did they need a flashlight? :wtf:
