Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is off to new pastures.
The California Republican on Monday announced his retirement from Congress, following 10 terms, to become CEO of former President Donald Trump’s tech startup, Trump Media & Technology Group.
Critics were a-moo-sed by the news that the Trump sycophant was jumping into the social media game, leading the company’s planned Truth Social network. Many referenced the outgoing politician’s unsuccessful lawsuits against Twitter over parody accounts, including Devin Nunes’ Cow.
“Devin Nunes, CEO & LOL,” tweeted Preet Bharara, the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

I’m just glad we all lived long enough to finally see Devin Nunes be right about something

If Devin Nunes really runs a social network there will be a small army of people committed to creating accounts pretending to be his cow. I can guarantee you that.

Devin Nunes just announced he's leaving Congress to become CEO of Trump's latest doomed media company. Nunes had also fielded offers to become a tree stump, a pot roast and a balloon filled with expired cottage cheese pic.twitter.com/VvTt6N5UbP
