Trump’s Son Gets Schooled After Claiming Conservatives Were Never Rude To Obama

A comedian went too far today and for that, she has apologized after outrage ensued. After a gory photo circulated showing Kathy Griffin holding a bloody Donald Trump mask, seemingly portraying his decapitated head, she admitted on Tuesday that she “went too far” in her latest photo shoot with controversial photographer Tyler Shields. To be clear, the condemnation was bipartisan; Chelsea Clinton, among others, denounced Griffin over the stunt.

In contrast, Donald Trump Jr. blamed the left. “Disgusting but not surprising. This is the left today. They consider this acceptable. Imagine a conservative did this to Obama as POTUS?” he tweeted without one bit of irony.

Here is Ms. Griffin’s apology:

Junior got schooled by the Internet.

Conservative hero Ted Nugent has never apologized for the threats he’s made.

Oh look, a Nazi is defending Trump Junior’s tweet yet he hasn’t called it out.

Former President Barack Obama’s children were threatened, too.

Jake Tapper chimed in to say, “For those asking, I said on air that I thought the beheading imagery by Griffin about the president was disgusting and inappropriate.”

Soledad O’Brien weighed in.

Here is Junior’s daddy in 2012 giving Nugent a pass after he threatened Obama. “Ted Nugent was obviously using a figure of speech, unfortunate as it was. It just shows the anger people have towards @BarackObama,” It tweeted.

In 2013, Conservative radio host Pete Santilli said on his show that he wanted to ‘shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina.” He got really graphic, adding, “I don’t want her to die right away; I want her to feel the pain,” and he said, “we need to try, convict, and shoot Hillary Clinton in the vagina.”

Much later, Santilli joined the militants who took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

There was no uproar from conservatives over Santilli’s threats, nor was there any outrage over the racial slurs repeatedly thrown at Obama, his wife, and their children. There was no uproar from conservatives when Donald Trump launched an effort to delegitimize our country’s first black President.

As for Ms. Griffin, she crossed the line and her photo has been widely denounced on both sides of the aisle. We’re not adding Griffin’s photo here because it’s in very poor taste but you can Google it if you’re curious.
