Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison claimed on Twitter that he had never seen a "Bernie Bro being bad" before being reminded by Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) that he was shot by a Sanders supporter at a congressional baseball practice in 2017.

Ellison quipped, "I have never seen @BernieSanders supporters being unusually mean or rude. Can someone send me an example of a 'Bernie Bro' being bad."

He added, "Also, are we holding all candidates responsible for the behavior of some of their supporters? Waiting to hear"

Scalise replied, "I can think of an example."
