Was the FBI drinking when they tweeted out this toast to the 100th anniversary of Prohibition?
If you didn’t already have tons of confidence in the FBI, this tweet will give you plenty:
Raise a glass—today is the 100th anniversary of Prohibition, which led to the #FBI's pursuit of the American gangster. During the Roaring Twenties, mobsters spent their profits from bootlegging & speakeasies on “Tommy” guns & bribes. Read more #history at https://t.co/4MzKZXIJXd pic.twitter.com/J4pUEUwYB8

We kinda feel like the FBI didn’t totally think this one through.
The government created this problem…

Or, at the very least, Prohibition created more American gangsters and allowed them to thrive.
You guys should really rethink this one! As I raise my glass of booze tonight, I’ll now think of all those people who are dead because our gov’t sought to legislate sobriety. Bad move here folks! pic.twitter.com/vdnWi1ECOv

Really, this was just a bad take all around.
I’m impressed. In a week like we’ve had, this is by far the dumbest tweet I’ve come across. 👏 Bravo!
