The New Republic, a 102-year-old American magazine of current events reporting and commentary, today wrote “fuck me daddy” to Donald J. Trump, the businessman and current front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, on the social networking platform Twitter. Then they deleted it.
The magazine, recently purchased by publisher and political activist Win McCormack, had handed its Twitter account over to the poet Patricia Lockwood, who contributed a (very good) story on Trump to a recent issue.
Reached for comment, Lockwood said: “ehehehehe.”
The deleted tweet was the first ever Good Tweet by a Brand.
