The Federalist co-founder Sean Davis made a Washington Post article playing up the NRA’s donations to members of Congress look pretty silly with one simple tweet in early October.
The Post’s story detailed where roughly $3.6 million in NRA political donations have gone in the past few decades. However, Davis pointed out that Planned Parenthood’s political donations from last year alone absolutely dwarf that number.
“Reporter uses basic division on above tweet and you won’t believe what happens next,” Twitchy posted on Tuesday, calling out the article for being a bit overwrought.
“Since 1998, the NRA has donated $3,555,194 to current members of Congress,” The Post contributor Kyle Griffin tweeted, with a link to the story. “Find out here who has received donations.”

Davis replied: “A whopping $190,000/year spread out across 400+ races, huh? Planned Parenthood spent $38 million just last year.”
