Domino's Pizza 'Gets Political' After Former Republican Strategist Resurfaces 2012 Tweet

What Happened: McEnany not only preferred Domino's over Pizza Hut, but said in her 2012 tweet that it was "Wayyyy better than any pizza in NYC".
First of all, no. As much as we all love Domino's, including me, it is factually wrong to say that it is far superior to "any" NYC pizza. Maybe it's better than a couple of the $ 1 slice joints, but I think everyone has their own.
Surprisingly, this is not the cause of the Internet's outrage. Instead, the Internet offends Domino's because he replied to the tweet with a simple thank you.
