It’s finally happened. Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) has smacked a Twitter troll into last week.
In response to being called a “house n***a,” a disparaging term routinely used by the left to mock black conservatives, Scott fired back with a one-word response.
To put that into visual terms...
Ouch. The racially insensitive tweet was ultimately deleted — and then the account was too.
Some of the Twitter reactions are gold:

Clearly, he's figured out how to handle it — just drop the mic on 'em.
Not bad, Senator.
