Official GOP Twitter account criticized over tweet about Beto

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and the official Twitter account of the GOP thought it would be funny to post this tweet/meme featuring Beto O’Rourke.

The meme features O’Rourke’s mug shot  from a 1998 DWI arrest in Texas with the caption, “On this St. Paddy’s Day, a special message from noted Irishman Robert Francis O’Rourke: Please Drink Responsibly.”

Many felt it was in poor taste, including some conservatives.

They have not taken the tweet down, instead following it up with this tweet.
