Which congressional tweets nabbed the most retweets last week? Those that focused on racism, immigration, women’s rights … and A$AP Rocky.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) had two of the five most-retweeted tweets over the last week. The first – and top tweet of the past week – was a retweet of Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) response to President Trump’s tweet about “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe.” Ocasio-Cortez’s tweet about Trump administration’s planned ICE raids also made the top five list.
Meanwhile, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) tweeted a video about the conditions of the migrant detention centers, and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) noted the anniversary of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
The fifth most-retweeted Spin Factor tweet is where it gets interesting. Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) tweeted his support for Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky, who ran into some real “Problems” when he was detained in Sweden after an altercation.
