This morning, I woke up to learn that at least 80 innocent men, women, and children were slaughtered, and hundreds more injured in Afghanistan.
It was one of the most vicious bomb attacks ever in Afghanistan. The kind that at a minimum should bring out the “thoughts and prayers” of anyone with a shred of decency. Did you tweet about it at all today? Nope. Twitter is, after all, your self-described official mouthpiece to give Americans “the real story.” So what was newsworthy, according to Trump?
The proverbial straw on this camel’s back was that you had the audacity to invoke the suffering of your kids.
Did you worry at all about what your kids would think when you spouted off about grabbing women by the p*ssy? Every time you denigrated or objectified a woman? Every time you bullied or insulted someone. Every time you incited hate and violence. Your kids were often there to see it. That wasn’t sick?
So I’m glad your kids are having a hard time dealing with Kathy Griffin’s tweet.
A little empathy would do you a world of good. Especially considering that you are the so-called leader of the free world. Which means the choices you make effect your kids as well as ours.
NOTE: Thank you for this. Here's the real deal folks: There was no outrage, no screaming about how "over the line," no media explosion demanding retribution, no firing from jobs, no national outpouring of holier-than-thou disgust when these hit the scene was there:
So spare me your Kathy Griffin outrage and this includes liberals and progressives as well. Michelle famously said "When they go low, we go high." Classy words but a strategy for disaster. It's been thirty years in the making but we liberals and progressives kept going "high." It was too "low brow," too illiberal to go low. Kept being polite in the face of never ending constant attacks on our values and our country. Our beliefs. We waited for the right wingers to come to their senses. As a result we have a disaster on our hands. And that disaster is Trump. What was the right wingers' defense of this hateful display of patriotic fervor during the eight years of the Obama Administration?
Me? Forgive me if you must, but I'll afford Kathy Griffin the very same First Amendment protection that was accorded to the Tea Party, Right Wingers and every other so-called American who engaged in this crap against President Obama.
Have A Good Day!
