Texas Lt. Governor Dan Patrick sent out the following tweet mere hours after a gunman shot and killed 50 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida:
It was posted at exactly 7 a.m. on Sunday; an oddly bucolic image with the words of Galatians 6:7 superimposed: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
As Chron reports, the Twitterverse was quick to come down on the inhumane and wholly inappropriate tweet, which has since been deleted.
. @DanPatrick Yes, you do reap what you sow. You have sown the seeds of resignation or impeachment……. Good luck with that.

Vote against Trump.
Vote against any politician crowing about today. (Long meaningful look at Dan Patrick's twitter account.)
