Pro-Trump Group Turning Point USA Deletes Mask Mocking Tweet After Co-Founder Dies Of Coronavirus

They never understand that the internet is forever:

The conservative youth group Turning Point USA deleted a tweet mocking protective masks after its cofounder Bill Montgomery died at 80 of complications related to COVID-19.

Two friends of Montgomery confirmed his death to Politico on Wednesday. In a tweet on Tuesday evening, Charlie Kirk, the group’s chairman, paid tribute to him, describing him as an “American hero.”

The tweet mocking masks, posted on Tuesday, featured a meme of Nicolas Cage and the message “me not wearing a mask while a leftist screams at me from their car from across the parking lot at whole foods.” By Thursday morning, the tweet was no longer on Turning Point USA’s Twitter feed.
