Republican political consultant Rick Wilson blasted Devin Nunes (R-CA) after he sued Twitter over two parody accounts.
“He’s accusing them of defamation for parody accounts that attacked him. It also says that Twitter harbors a political agenda against conservatives,” CNN host Anderson Cooper said.
“It also fits into the whole we are victims narrative that seems to be very popular among some on the right,” Cooper said.
“This will last about 30 seconds in court. Thanks for playing, bye,” he added. “All of these people are so delicate when someone puts a meme on Twitter. Nunes’s cow, these things send him into an absolute frenzy. Toughen up. It’s politics. This is not for the soft among us. Get in the game. He can meme right back if he had any stones.”

‘Race Traitor’: Far-right UK student jailed for more than four years over Prince Harry online posts
A far-right university student who called Prince Harry a race traitor and created an image of him with a pistol to his head was on Tuesday jailed in Britain for more than four years.
Michal Szewczuk, 19, posted the image, which also featured a blood-splattered swastika, on microblogging platform Gab in August last year, months after the prince married mixed-race actress Meghan Markle.The post included the phrase "See Ya Later Race Traitor".
Szewczuk, who was jailed for four years and three months, pleaded guilty to two counts of encouraging terrorism and five counts of possession of terrorist material, including the White Resistance Manual and an Al-Qaeda manual.
Trump was ready to ‘blow up everything’: Biographer Michael Wolff on why Mueller didn’t indict
It is not an easy task to discern the truth when confronting a president and his allies who have created their own reality, one in which truth and lies have no absolute meaning and are, for them, ultimately interchangeable.
Donald Trump does this on a personal level: he has lied at least 10,000 times while president.
During his recent interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Donald Trump continued to lie in public, asserting that he did not try to fire special sounsel Robert Mueller. As multiple sources and witnesses agree, this is not true. Trump also asserted that he can do anything that he wants, according to the Constitution: He apparently believes he is a king or emperor. This too is a lie. The Constitution grants the president no such powers, and was drafted by the framers to stop demagogues and would-be tyrants such as Donald Trump.
CNN panel destroys Trump’s mass arrest threat of millions as a wildly unrealistic Orlando rally stunt
The panel on CNN's New Day cast a jaundiced eye at a threat Donald Trump made on Monday night where he threatened mass arrests of millions of immigrant families as part of an ICE operation.
On Twitter, the president wrote: "Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in. Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people."
According to one panelist on CNN, the president's threat was timed as a political stunt, with the contributor Jackie Kucinich calling it "rally-fodder" before his Orlando campaign kickoff.
