Nunes tells Sean Hannity this is “the first of many” lawsuits to come, and Trump signaled support by tweeting about it Monday night. We must hope that Nunes’s bovine broadside won’t end until he sues cows into extinction.

My friend Jonathan Chait at New York Magazine calls this “bonkers,” and The Post’s Aaron Blake sees “ridiculousness” in the lawsuit, particularly given Nunes’s co-sponsorship of a bill called the Discouraging Frivolous Lawsuits Act.

Nunes is also sore that the Devin Nunes’ Mom account compared him to “Scabbers,” which, the lawsuit says, “refers to Ron Weasley’s pet rat in the Harry Potter books.” The account also “falsely stated that Nunes was ‘voted “Most Likely to Commit Treason” in high school.’ ”

Cows were an obstacle to Nunes before this week’s tipping point. Esquire’s Ryan Lizza reported last year that the Nunes family dairy farm quietly moved from California to Iowa.

Predictably, the cows went mad in response to the Nunes lawsuit (these black-and-white supremacists dominate the dark Web). Devin Nunes’ cow, which had only 1,204 followers when the lawsuit was filed, had bred a herd of 119,000 followers by Tuesday afternoon. Spoof accounts proliferated: Devin Nunes Mom’s Cow. Devin Nunes’s Cow Psychiatrist. Devin Nunes’s Mullet. Devin Nunes is a Whiny Baby.
