Today, Sen. Bernie Sanders printed out a tweet — you can get them on your computer now — and went to the floor of an empty U.S. Senate chamber where he put it on an easel, so it would show up on television — which you can also get on your computer now — where the folks watching at home could capture screenshots and then post them to Twitter.
This, no doubt, all seemed perfectly normal to the United States Senate.
