HuffPo reporter accidentally sends crude text to fmr. Congressman, hilarious comeback lights up Twitter

A Huffington Post reporter taught himself an embarrassing yet funny lesson about not texting and driving

Matt Fuller thought he was sending his cousin a birthday message on Friday while he was driving. Once he pressed send it was too late to retrieve the “Happy Birthday sh**head” that was on its way to former Republican Congressman Tim Huelskamp.

Mortified, the journalist posted the message on Twitter, along with a word of advice.

Even worse, Fuller got a response from the former Kansas politician.

Thankfully, Huelskamp appeared to have a sense of humor about it but asked the congressional correspondent to keep his reply “off-the-record.”

Huelskamp, who lost a re-lection bid in the 2016 Republican primary, relented and told Fuller he could share the response, which he did with a screenshot of the message.

“Thought maybe it was Boehner drunk again,” was Huelskamp’s reply, referring to former Speaker of the House John Boehner who served as the GOP leader during Huelskamp’s first four-year term in Congress.

Responses to Fuller’s hilarious gaffe and Huelskamp’s response flooded Twitter. Even White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway noticed.

Fuller offered up an added thought a few minutes later.

The comment set off a series of negative responses which may have prompted Fuller to delete the tweet.

But, it seems Huelskamp scored the Twitter win for the day with his response to Fuller and follow-up tweet to one reader’s comment.
