Twitter erupted into mockery after Donald Trump called Georgia congressional candidate Jon Ossoff a ‘super Liberal Democrat.’
Ossoff leads a crowded field for Georgia’s sixth Congressional district to fill the seat vacated by Tom Price. It seems that Trump is freaking out over the possibility that Ossoff could pull off an upset in the election on April 18.
Trump tweeted: “The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigration and raise taxes!” (with a typo)
The super Liberal Democrat in the Georgia Congressioal race tomorrow wants to protect criminals, allow illegal immigration and raise taxes!

It seems that Jon Ossoff is succeeding at one of his taglines, “Make Trump Furious.” How else do you explain the unhinged tweetstorm from the so-called president first thing this morning?
Ossoff responded to Trump’s tweet:

"Super Liberal Democrat" is one of the more underrated DC superheroes. Hope he'll make a cameo in Justice League. https://t.co/KdCe0q4kh5

@NewYorker this is the man Trump just tweeted about calling him a 'SUPER LIBERAL DEMOCRAT' – someone's nervous and it isn't Mr. Ossoff!
