Redskins tried to troll Senator Harry Reid on Twitter, but it backfired

The Washington Redskins are still fighting to keep their name, despite 50 United States Senators sending a letter urging them to consider changing it. One of the more outspoken Senators is Harry Reid.

“Dan Snyder, he’s got a great new deal,” Reid said, via the Washington Post. “He’s going to throw a few blankets to the Indians and get a tax deduction for it. I can’t imagine why the man doesn’t realize that the name is going to change. It’s only a question of when it’s going to change. That’s the only question.”

So the Redskins Twitter account tried to get their fans to support the team name by Tweeting at Senator Reid.

The only problem is that everyone can see the Redskins Tweets, and it backfired like so many Q&A sessions with prominent figures we’ve seen before.
