Jon Huntsman Daughters Hit Back At GOP Candidates Over Twitter During Republican Debate

Posted: Updated:

While Jon Huntsman may be holding back from slinging attacks at his fellow GOP contenders, his daughters are not.

Throughout the Republican primary debate in New Hampshire Tuesday night, Huntsman's three oldest daughters -- Liddy, Abby and Mary Anne -- have been tweeting under the name @Jon2012Girls, making fun of the other Republicans and defending their dad.

Some of their tweets:

- "How does Romney know anything about China? He's only been there once and that was for the Olympics. Panda express doesn't count."

- "Just picture the Von trapp family eating pizza and singing about numbers. Maybe we will have a Romney bro duet."

- "When is someone going to make a song about 9-9-9? We will start working on one. Get ready."

- @AriFleischer we had an intervention with dad to just be himself tonight...glad he finally took our advice.
