Legendary poke pro Doyle Brunson has gotten into a bit of a tit-for-tat with poker player Kevin Iacofano via Twitter on Thursday.

Iacofano refers to himself as a “concerned political citizen of the USA” while Brunson, 84, makes no secret of the fact that he is a life long Republican.

It began with Iacofano tweeting the following to the Texas Dolly, a one-time supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump:

@TexDolly terrorized children as a matter of policy, lying and or misleading statements on a daily basis, promoting the fakest news of all and his own propaganda wing on Fox News, but he did lower taxes , so cheers

It was not immediately known what may have provoked the tweet.

Then Iacofano offered this:

@TexDolly ah f it, Tom Price, the Veterans Administration article today, promoting an anti-science environmental policy, enriching his private businesses on behalf of government, ethics violations promoting private businesses while in office, should I keep going?

To which Brunson tweeted back:

Yes, keep on going, out the door.

Brunson, rarely an apologist for the current administration, backed away from his support of Donald Trump earlier in the year after expressing disappointment for signing off on a massive tax cut Brunson believed will put the country in debt.

Political rhetoric amongst poker players has been the norm of late.

Mike "The Mouth" Matusow is among the most out-spoken when it comes to his ardent support of the U.S. President and he routinely takes heat for tweets he makes.

On the other end of the political spectrum is Daniel Negreanu, who two weeks ago suggested that anyone still a Trump supporter really isn't worth his time and energy.  One player even accused Negreanu of verbally attacking him at the World Series of Poker.
