And by the way, as I type this, I am in a vehicle with CBP at the border. Happy to put you on the phone with them so you can learn more about this and properly inform your students.— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) February 1, 2019

This appears to be the tweet she's referring to:Your first tweet is fair and I'll get to it. Your 2nd is ad homenim and condescending and for someone who has tried to elevate the convo, you should read my bio before playing that game. I've dealt with that he man stuff a lot. I'm on vacation so standby. Congressman. https://t.co/7SPm0PLPTS— Juliette Kayyem (@juliettekayyem) February 1, 2019
I’m trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here since I know you from Harvard, but it’s difficult. Answer this question honestly please: why does a drug bust at a POE prove your case that fencing shouldn’t be used in between POE’s? You realize they are separate issues right?— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) February 1, 2019
She's right; it's a fair point. The second tweet is just childish and unbecoming an adult, much less a U.S. Representative.
With any luck he'll only serve two years.
