After eight years of decimating public unions
and annoying everyone on Twitter
, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker lost in the midterm elections on Tuesday to former public school principal Tony Evers.
Labor union AFL-CIO has been fighting Walker for years. Their six-word public statement about his loss couldn’t have been shorter and sweeter.
“Scott Walker was a national disgrace,” the statement reads.
The AFL-CIO has a long history of calling Walker a disgrace. In 2015, when Walker announced his candidacy for president, union president Scott Trumka released a press statement saying simply: “Scott Walker is a disgrace.”
When he tanked in the 2016 Republican presidential primary, the AFL-CIO added a few short words to their statement.
“Scott Walker is still a disgrace, just no longer a national one,” they said.
Today, the internet applauded one of the nation’s strongest, pithiest unions:
Congratulations to the AFL-CIO on their successful years-long public trolling campaign.
