Yeah, that’s really him in the picture.
West Virginian Republican lawmaker and sometimes United Airlines pilot Michael Folk went full stupid and called for the public murder of Hillary Clinton by hanging over Twitter.
You know this guy is truly an “alpha Republican” because he was even too stupid to attempt to delete the original tweet. It’s still there, getting loads of bad comments. A capture is below just in case he figures out how Twitter works.
So typical of Republicans. When something upsets you, kill it. Right?
After getting a lot of blowback on Twitter for his stupidity, Michael decided to do the Republican thing and double down, posting a second tweet reading, “Sorry I don’t mince words … read this story & watch this video & maybe you’ll understand.”

In case you’re curious I’ll save you some time. The article he posted a link to was about the failed Republican witch hunt into Hillary’s email server that resulted in NOTHING being found wrong. It’s full of Republican bitching and bluster, but in the end, they quote the FBI director who said that was no evidence of anything bad found during the investigation.
Yeah, he literally posted an article that included a debunking of his whole reason for threatening Hillary. How the hell stupid can one person be?
The West VA Democratic Party has denounced the tweet promptly, calling Folks “unfit to serve.” That’s putting it mildly for sure.
By the time Saturday morning came, you’d be thinking he would have come to his senses and backed down … nope!
Saturday Michael tweeted again saying “Hillary supporters are coming out of the woodwork this morning” with people bashing the hell out of him over his ridiculous comments. Some commenters aren’t even Hillary supporters, but they just hate the idea of Michael Folk being in their state’s government.
It just kept going from there. Clearly, it’s everyone else’s fault, as Michael suggests below, and not his own.
Remember that part about him being a United Airlines Pilot? Yeah well, that isn’t going over too well with management either.
United Airlines was made aware of the comment, sending them screen captures. UA responded, “We are definitely aware and are investigating this. Thanks for letting us know.” Expect Michael Folk to soon go from 2 jobs to zero jobs.
