The Fresno County GOP has canceled a dinner that would have honored Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) amid calls to crash the event that came after his legal spat with the “Devin Nunes’ cow” Twitter account.

The Fresno Bee newspaper, known for their own public feuds with Nunes, reported that the county’s Republican party canceled the Lincoln Reagan dinner scheduled for April that would have featured the California congressman as its keynote speaker.

Organizers confirmed to the Bee that they are trying to reschedule the event that would also have honored Rep. David Valadao and former state Sen. Andy Vidak (both of whom lost re-election bids last year).

Earlier this week, news broke that Nunes is suing the @Devincow parody Twitter account that jokingly purports to be a cow living in Iowa that belongs to the GOP congressman. He also is planning to sue another user who pretended to be his mother and Twitter itself.

Soon after Fox News broke the story about the “Devin cow” account, its follower count surpassed Nunes’.

Twitter users — including Andy Lassner, an executive producer for The Ellen Show — tweeted about the event, joking that it would be funny if people bought tickets and showed up to the event to “moo” at Nunes.

“I’m not saying it would be hilarious if folks in Fresno showed up to this event just to moo,” Lassner tweeted. “I’m not saying that at all.”

The Fresno GOP did not respond to the Bee‘s questions about whether they delayed the dinner due to calls to crash the event.

Lincoln Project releases harrowing new video of the future if Trump wins re-election

Published

on

The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists seeking to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, released another new video on Monday evening.

Unlike other videos, the latest release did not feature Trump saying crazy things. Instead, it is more like a 60-second short film.

It features a mother listening to election night returns. She goes into her son's bedroom and lovingly awakens him.

"Hey honey, you asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election," she says.

"Who won?" the child asked.

"Trump," she replied. "Trump won."
