Sticks and Stones

The faux outrage. The false equivalents. I can barely take it. Samantha Bee called Ivanka a feckless cunt. Kathy Griffin held Trump’s severed head in a photo. Bill Maher compared the entire bannon of deplorables with the Nazis. Frankly my darling, I don’t give a damn.

Putting the obvious hypocrisy and locker room talk aside let’s be clear. This really isn’t complicated. There is no double standard at play here. There is a big and obvious difference between criticism, even the tasteless kind, aimed at a sitting President and his surrogates compared with an admittedly abhorrent and ignorant tweet that offends an entire race of people (and their surrogates)
