Sen. Chuck Grassley’s tweets are alternately amusing and infuriating to his followers. While bizarre tweets about roadkill have earned him an enthusiastic Twitter following, his political posts seem to draw out a disproportionate number of trolls. Today, Grassley tweeted simply that public Nativity scenes are a longstanding tradition that deserves to continue.

@chuckgrassley The USA did away with the tradition of state religion at its founding. Sorry to hear some are only now finding out.

Tough crowd! If Grassley has any supporters on this issue, they haven’t spoken up yet. Nevertheless, many can’t wait for Grassley’s next tweet and a repeat of that “ASSUME DEER DEAD” magic.
Also, side note. You can see @chuckgrassley on the Senate floor on C-SPAN right now and he just tweeted. COME ON CHUCK.
