California Republican Congressman Devin Nunes on Tuesday attempted to brand himself as a champion of free speech.
Nunes went on Twitter to urge his followers to start accounts on Parler, a Twitter alternative for people who don't want to follow rules banning racism and threats of violence.
The fact that Nunes attempted to sue a fictitious Twitter account that jokes about being his cow was not lost on commentators.
Here's some of what people were saying:
