What’s Matthew Boyle Tweeting?

Windbag Investigative journalist Matthew Boyle from Breitbart hasn’t had the best track record on reporting stories for the site since he jumped from The Daily Caller at the end of 2012. (Remember when he reported that Republicans were planning on kicking John Boehner to the curb as Speaker of the House?)

Despite his missteps, Boyle seems to have found his niche in the immigration issue. While conservatives can’t seem to make up their minds about who is leading the way, Boyle is taking no prisoners in harshly judging any conservative lawmakers who agree to any legislation that remotely resembles amnesty for undocumented immigrants in this country.

Boyle has spent a lot of time praising the work of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Cruz has been vocal in fighting any “path to citizenship,” so Boyle has latched onto him.

The only problem is, Boyle isn’t totally sure what the hell Cruz is saying.

In one tweet, Boyle quoted Cruz and wrote, “Gang of Eight bill de facto affirmative action for those here illegally.” When Buzzfeed’s McKay Coppins tweeted back to Boyle to clarify, Boyle just tweeted, “I don’t know what he means but he tweeted it out. Would love to hear a further explanation.” Awesome tweet, Matt. I think it lends a lot of credibility to your organization when you just tweet random stuff out that you don’t even understand.

Boyle has recently kept a one-track mind on immigration. He live-tweeted Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) appearance on “Fox News Sunday” this past weekend and accused him of “making many statements of questionable veracity.” Boyle then SHOCKS Twitter followers with salty language from Graham.


I DO DECLARE! A sitting U.S. Senator said H-E-DOUBLE-HOCKEY-STICKS on the public airwaves! Fetch me my fainting couch!

Few tweeters take themselves as seriously as Boyle, which is why it might be so much fun to follow him. It’s entertaining in a pathetic sort of way. Keep up the good work, Matthew!
