Last week, after Democrat Doug Jones beat Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama U.S. Senate race, Colorado U.S. Senator Cory Gardner invited Jones to consider voting with Republicans. Here’s what Gardner said the night of the election:

“Tonight’s results are clear– the people of Alabama deemed Roy Moore unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate. I hope Senator-elect Doug Jones will do the right thing and truly represent Alabama by choosing to vote with the Senate Republican majority.”

It’s not an outlandish suggestion. Had Jones not faced a fatally flawed candidate in Moore, he would not have won his election. The numbers of registered Republicans vs. registered Democrats just don’t work out for Democrats in Alabama.

That didn’t stop the throngs of liberals on Twitter from ridiculing Gardner for such a ridiculous suggestion. Here’s one guy on Twitter who mocked Gardner:

Fast forward a few days, according to The Hill:

“Sen.-elect Doug Jones (D-Ala.) on Sunday said he will ‘of course’ consider voting with Republicans on certain issues once he is sworn into the upper chamber.

“He also pledged to look for areas where he can work across the aisle.

“‘Of course I do,’ Jones told CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ when asked if he will have to weigh voting with Republicans due to his state’s strong Republican base.”

Sure seems like those ridiculing Gardner sure have egg on their faces now.
