Around noon yesterday, Senator John McCain tweeted out the following:

It did not go well for him since he, you know, voted to pass the Republican Tax Bill last week. The one that completely nullified his stunt of voting no to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The one that screwed over tons of Americans.

The tweet prompted more than 24,000 comments that all seem to be negative. People retweeted the inane plea with the hashtag #UnfollowMcCain. It was GLORIOUS.

So instead of being 74 followers from 3 million, McCain is now 22,382 followers from that milestone. It’s the little actions of civil disobedience that can really make your week, don’t you agree?
