Idaho Representative Deletes Tweet After Backlash from Speech
It seemed from the posts on social media that Idaho's Republican's and their respective guests had some fun mingling this weekend.
In fact, in the evening, Representative Simpson shared that he had a great time at dinner! He complimented Governor Little and took a picture with Idaho's diverse gathering of politicians.
It wasn't until later, however, that Twitter seemed to completely roast the United States Representative because of one remark.

Who is Brandon and what's the big deal?
Incase you are unaware, the phrase which you're beginning to see on more hats, social media posts, t-shirts and bumper stickers is actually a political slogan that is supposed to mean "F*** Joe Biden".
We all know just how divisive the political climate is these days and yes, it's a phrase that has been said time and time again by the online political warriors. Take for example Lieutenant Governor McGeachin's intense run against Governor Brad Little.

Is this phrase anything that a 71-year-old elected official serving his twelfth term in the House of Representatives of the United States of America should end a speech with? Some don't care, others say no-- not the time or place.
One Twitter user took a screen-recording of the speech which you can see, below:
Plenty of others online had criticism for Simpson's speech:
