The tweets may now be gone, but they are certainly not forgotten.
President Donald Trumpdeleted three embarrassing posts from his Twitter account on Tuesday night after the candidate he backed to claim Alabama’s GOP Senate nomination, Sen. Luther Strange, lost to Roy Moore.
ProPublica’s Politwoops noted Trump’s removal of the tweets, in which he’d claimed that Strange was “shooting up” in the polls since his presidential endorsement.
Tweeters were quick to call Trump out over his culling of the messages from his timeline. A sampling of the responses are below:

Trump deleting pro-Strange tweets is too perfect.— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) September 27, 2017
While Trump is deleting Luther Strange tweets he should do the world a favor & delete his account.— Adam Best (@adamcbest) September 27, 2017
Smart of Trump to delete old pro-Strange tweets. no one will ever notice.— Sam Stein (@samstein) September 27, 2017
Now Trump has deleted the tweet I quoted from this morning where he bragged about the power of his endorsement of Luther Strange in Alabama. https://t.co/LsxUFAGn8j— Keith Boykin (@keithboykin) September 27, 2017
It's hilarious how feeble this is. Trump left up all his other Luther tweets, just not those from today/yesterday. https://t.co/PfjHXPQbiT— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) September 27, 2017
Someone deleted these Trump tweets tonight. The NFL tweets are still there, of course. Racism is fine. Backing a loser isn't. pic.twitter.com/mC5VtVSN5q— shauna (@goldengateblond) September 27, 2017
