Trump's Transition-Blocking GSA Boss Finally Tweeted And It Was Weird As Hell

(HuffPost) General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy, who has refused to authorize the transition process for President-elect Joe Biden, fired off her first tweet in nearly two weeks on Wednesday and it wasn’t what anyone was expecting.

The tweet was ultimately deleted.

President Donald Trump appointed Murphy to the administrator position in 2017. As head of the GSA, she is expected to deliver an apolitical ascertainment naming the “apparent successful candidate” of the presidential election, which in turn begins the process of the transition of power. To date, Murphy has refused to do so despite Biden’s 306-232 win in the Electoral College and a lead of nearly 6 million ballots in the popular vote.

Murphy has not spoken publicly about her decision, leaving many Twitter critics to guess at what her enigmatic tweet meant:

My late guy used to help me with on-line crossword puzzles - never could get him to understand that putting "3" in every square was usually not the right solution!

This is such a good idea, she obviously is feeling the pressure - enough that she had her "friends" defend her in a statement. Perhaps you might make this a new thread....

she would tweet the circumstances around that instead of deleting it.
If it was her cat or a baby playing with her phone, it would be totally believable and even cute, thereby humanizing her.

The Biden Campaign can proceed. Just do it and let her deal with it.
