College recruiting always seems to bring out the worst in people.

College football is a fickle business. Recruits commit and decommit all the time. Coaches change teams after a year. It's all part of the game, so to speak. So when Oregon recruit Braden Lenzy decommitted following head coach Willie Taggart's decision to leave the school for FSU, most people didn't bat an eye.

That is, unless you're Oregon state representative Bill Post, who was apparently so upset by Lenzy's decision to have agency over his own life choices, that he—an elected official!—took to Twitter to talk some trash to Lenzy.

Lenzy responded with a laugh, probably taken aback by the fact Post felt it necessary to insert himself in a matter he has no business being a part of.

And some Good Twitter Samaritans rightfully roasted Post for his childish tweet:

We live in strange times, man.
