Texas GOP Senator John Cornyn gets humiliated after trying to troll comedian Patton Oswalt

Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) is facing a tough 2020 re-election battle in the Lone Star state, and apparently his campaign got upset when comedian Patton Oswalt after Oswalt appeared in a campaign video for Cornyn’s Democratic opponent, MJ Hegar.

HuffPost notes that Cornyn’s campaign Twitter account began bombarding Oswalt with all sorts of insults:

“The ‘Team Cornyn’ Twitter account ― run by campaign staff and not the senator himself ― responded by slamming the 2020 rival as ‘Hollywood Hegar’ and retweeting ‘offensive comments in old tweets by Oswalt, censoring both profane words and even non-profanities, such as “penis.”

“It even attempted to saddle Oswalt with a nickname: ‘Vulgar Patton.'”

That was all it took for Oswalt to begin retweeting the slams against him and respond with his own barbs aimed at Cornyn and his campaign. Take a look:

Then others joined the party and berated Cornyn:

If this is any indication of how the 2020 Cornyn campaign is going to perform the rest of the way, the GOP might want to go ahead and concede the seat.
