Looks like Neera Tanden got a little carried away hating on the people who now will have to vote to confirm her.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Neera Tanden, President-elect Joe Biden’s pick for budget director, has deleted over a thousand tweets in anticipation of a tough confirmation vote.
Many of Tanden’s deleted posts were critical of Republican senators, whose votes she will likely need for confirmation, as well as prominent conservatives and journalists.
Tanden, who is the CEO of the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, would need a majority vote in the Senate to become the head of Biden’s Office of Management and Budget, meaning that she is likely to need GOP support.
Tanden’s deleted tweets include, for example, multiple posts expressing disapproval of Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, a centrist Republican who has been known to vote with Democrats on some issues and is considered a “swing” vote. Yet, she left up a 2018 tweet that calls Collins “pathetic” for supporting Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in the Senate.
