Our main characters on Twitter over the weekend were “Joel and Lynne” and Nikki Fried.
HAVING A GOOD ONE

HAVING A BAD ONE
FRIED: The Florida agriculture commissioner and Democratic gubernatorial candidate was mocked after gun-control activist David Hogg seemingly bullied her into signing a pledge to ban “assault weapons.”
Putting aside that I think Nikki Fried would make a terrible Governor, acting so desperate that you’re willing to immediately change your position because David Hogg tweeted at you is just bad politics because it signals voters can’t trust you to stick by what you say. https://t.co/wuqSgbi3P4
