Twitter User Brilliantly Mocks Kim Davis by Posing as Staffer: ‘This Was Supposed to Just Be a Chill Job’

Tweets imagine thoughts going through the mind of a deputy clerk frequently seen in videos recorded at the Rowan County clerk’s office.

Twitter has been having a lot of fun with Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refuses to obey court orders and issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

But no one has had more fun with the defiant public official than whoever set up the “Sit next to Kim Davis” social media account.

The tweets imagine thoughts going through the mind of a deputy clerk frequently seen in videos recorded at the Rowan County clerk’s office.

“I sit next to Kim Davis,” reads the account description. “This was supposed to just be a chill job. Goddamn it, Kim.”

The account’s name pokes fun at the #standwithkim hashtag used by Davis’ anti-LGBT supporters.

The deputy clerk was seen treating a gay couple rudely — and referring to them as “girls” — in a viral video recorded shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges that effectively legalized same-sex marriage.

The deputy clerk was summoned by U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning to appear along with her boss and co-workers Thursday in federal court for a hearing on possible contempt charges.

Davis appears willing to be jailed as a Christian “martyr,” at the advice of her lawyers with the religious conservative Liberty Counsel, but one wonders what her staffers think.
