Social media offers NRA ‘thoughts and prayers’ for going broke

They’re sending their “Thoughts and Prayers” to the NRA.

The Twittersphere had a snarky response Saturday to the National Rifle Association’s claim that it’s going broke, responding by sending exactly the same cliche that gun-loving politicians use when every time there’s another mass shooting.

“Don’t send money,” Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr tweeted. “Thoughts and prayers should suffice.”

The powerful, deep-pocketed gun lobby — which gave a record $21 million to Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — says it may soon be “unable to exist,” according court documents revealed Friday.

It’s blaming Gov. Cuomo for launching a “blacklisting campaign” that goaded financial institutions and insurers to cut their ties to the lobby.

Cuomo was among those to offer his tongue-in-cheek condolences.

“If the @NRA goes bankrupt because of the State of New York, they’ll be in my thoughts and prayers,” he tweeted.

“I’ll see you in court,” he added, a reference to a federal lawsuit the NRA has filed against New York state.

“Thoughts and Prayers” have also been offered by comedian Chelsea Handler, activist Linda Sarsour and Rep. Brendan Boyle of Philadelphia.

Also Saturday, dozens of anti-NRA protesters rallied outside the lobbying group’s headquarters in Fairfax, Va. — among them parents and survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.
