#Resistance Twitter Hero Exposed as Pro-Trump Gamer
Photo Illustration by The Daily BeastIn the world of #Resistance Twitter, @GuardianRover was a hero.

The White House counters that Kasich's machete will go unnoticed because "no one" is "showing up to that fight." Except that Trump is himself drawing spectators to the prospective fight by tweeting about Kasich. And Weaver is very, very good at getting press attention for his candidates (think of John McCain's Straight Talk Express in 2000).
