In a lighthearted tweet posted on Thursday, Republican Senator Ben Sasse relayed the funny message he’d just gotten from his wife after the family dog Teddy went to the vet to have his...er..."little teddies" removed.
Text from my daughters:— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) July 14, 2017
"Be quiet when u get home tonight. Teddy [dog #3] had his nuts chopped off today & we don't want him jumping around"
Of course, rather than simply laughing at Sasse’s humorous personal moment, left-wing Twitter just couldn’t let neutered dogs lie, and instead hijacked the Nebraska senator’s tweet to blast the GOP’s new health care bill.
Hm. Reminds me of your sackless ability to only stand up to Trump on twitter— Aaron 🥀 (@aaaaaaaaaaaronn) July 14, 2017
Funny the Republican Senate caucus has also had their nuts cut off by President Bannon— Nevin McMullin (@BirdBrain2017) July 14, 2017

Speaking of having your nuts chopped off... https://t.co/kAQJQNFljQ— Daniel Radosh (@danielradosh) July 14, 2017
Is this supposed to be a metaphor for the GOP?— Eric Turkewitz (@Turkewitz) July 14, 2017
OK. So hey, Mr. Chuckles McGoodvibes, why are you going to make it so that your dog can see the doctor but I can't?— Ty (@BossDoxie) July 14, 2017
Hey your dog has health care unlike the millions you want to screw over!— Brian Johns (@BrianEJohns8790) July 14, 2017
One guy saw the tweet as a chance to take a swing at President Trump...

...while another person took a jab at the senator’s pro-life stance.
Glad that Teddy had the freedom to make that choice— Leonardo Vicente (@LeoVL_MD) July 14, 2017
At least one user had the decency to call out those addicted to over-politicizing everything.

But cant he just be a person & not get caustic comments at every turn. Please?
It's worth noting that none of these tweets conveyed sympathy for poor Teddy -- who, let's be honest, was the real victim here. But if the left can’t even laugh at a simple tweet like this without getting their panties all twisted, maybe the partisan hatred has gone just a little too far.
