Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich was caught going after Barron Trump, the ten-year-old son of President Donald J. Trump, tweeting that he could become the nation’s first homeschool shooter. Not really a funny joke. She deleted the tweet and protected her account on Twitter. Yet, the Internet is forever:
Yes, Obama’s daughters also received some ridicule and unkind comments from a few conservatives, which wasn’t right either. At the same time, there were never hopes that they would become murderers. Ken Meyer of Mediaite also corrected the record by saying that Barron wasn’t homeschooled. It's your typical run-of-the-mill liberal tantrum. They lost the election. Now, they hope that bad things happen to the new president because they don't like him. We're dealing with a bunch of cry babies, folks--but you already knew that.
As for accountability, don't hold your breathe about NBC doing anything concerning disciplining Ms. Rich.
CNN’s Jake Tapper had some words of wisdom:
That it even need be said is ridiculous, but mocking the 10-year-old child of a politician you loathe is odious, immoral, & self-defeating— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) January 21, 2017
