Amash in Twitter tiff
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Representative Justin Amash is having another Twitter tiff, this time trading barbs with President Obama's Press Secretary.
It all started when Jay Carney tweeted a comment using Amash's own words to blame republicans for looming federal spending cuts.
Amash apparently criticized a GOP Twitter campaign that uses an #obamaquester hashtag, saying he thinks it's a mistake to pin the sequester on the president, saying its disingenuous.
Amash saw the Carney tweet and jabbed back, saying quote ... "it's even more disingenuous for 'Pres O' to call sequester "devastating" when he came up with it & signed it into law."
The Twitter battle then goes back and forth between Amash and Carney with several more tweets.
The exchange was Amash's second high-profile Twitter tiff in several weeks. Earlier this month Amash called a tweet from Senator John McCain a racist joke after McCain compared Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to a monkey that was recently launched into space.
