I’ll give Steve Dettlebach this much: When the dumbest thing President Joe Biden’s choice to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives ever tweeted resurfaced after his nomination was announced, he didn’t delete it. That takes guts. Or stupidity. Either one.

I’m going with stupidity.

A bit of background before we get to Dettelbach’s tone-deaf, racially tinged tweet about a sports legend — a missive that would be hilariously inept if it came from your dimwit high-school quarterback but comes across as more disturbing from a man who will potentially decide just how much of your Second Amendment freedom you get to use.

Dettelbach was a former U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Ohio during the Barack Obama administration. According to CNN, he’s “currently a partner at BakerHostetler and helps lead the firm’s white-collar, investigations and securities enforcement and litigation team.”

I mention this not just to rattle off his résumé but to remind you, before we get to the next part of this dumpster fire, that this man not only holds a law degree but has reached the top echelons of his profession.
