Michigan Republican Rep. Justin Amash appears to have gotten a great birthday present for his fellow libertarian-leaning member of the “Rebel Alliance,” Kentucky Repubican Rep. Thomas Massie. On his Twitter feed, Massie posted a picture of a Lego Star Wars X-Wing he received from Amash for his birthday.
“To the best wingman in the Rebel Alliance,” the card on the gift reads.
“Thanks @repjustinamash for the birthday gift! These are the droids we are looking for,” Massie tweeted in response to the gift.
In a fundraising email on his birthday, Amash also called Massie a “true friend” and “a nerd.”
