Duggars accused of animal cruelty after son-in-law deliberately hits cat while sledding

Published

on

An Instagram video showing members of Arkansas’ Duggar clan sledding on a snow-covered hill has raised animal lovers’ hackles across the Internet.

According to BuzzFeed, the short video clip was posted March 1 ago by Derick Dillard, who is married to Jill Duggar, one of the daughters of the famously fecund 19 Kids and Counting family.

In the video, Dillard slides down the hill on a flat piece of metal directly toward an orange tabby cat that is crouched in the snow.

“Move, cat,” Dillard said before beginning his descent toward the animal.

“Push him, push him, push him!” someone shouts over and over as Dillard plows into the cat, which does not appear to see him coming.

Social media users have responded furiously, accusing the so-called “Quiverfull family” of deliberate cruelty toward the animal.

“Sure don’t think running over a cat and laughing about it is funny. Clearly you are not very Jesus like either,” wrote an Instagram user.

Another said, “Not cool, guy. No longer a fan. Cruelty towards animals is not Christian-like behavior. I certainly hope you don’t have the same disregard for your child as you do this helpless cat.”

“Ugh, what an a–hole. This whole family is a hot mess and horrible people,” said another user.

At press time, the Instagram post had more than 1,000 comments.

On Dillard (@Derick4Him)’s Twitter post about the incident, commenters were equally scathing.

"Please don’t bring European-style socialism to America," Luntz pleaded.

I’m at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria. Almost 200 rooms… But the elevator has been broken for 3 days.

Columnists bid a brutal farewell to ‘sneering’ Sarah Sanders: Her ‘awfulness was a thing to behold’

Published

on

On Tuesday, New York Times columnists Gail Collins and Bret Stephens discussed the departure of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who they agreed was one of the worst press secretaries in modern times.

"She brought us back to the bad old days when women were supposed to be seen and not heard, but lately she wasn't seen all that much either," said Collins. "Who would want to go down in history as the press secretary who got rid of the press briefing?"

‘Nightcrawlers and toadyism’: Trump’s remaining staffers ridiculed for hanging on while others flee off-the-rails president

Published

on

In a caustic piece for the New York Daily News, columnist Richard Cohen mocked the few remaining staffers who have stood by Donald Trump's side since he became president saying they obviously lack anywhere else to go and have apparently have no self-respect.

Or as he put it: "Whatever happened to pride?"

"I ask because reports regularly surface about Donald Trump berating or insulting someone, often an aide, who just takes it," Cohen wrote. "A recent example comes from Michael Wolff’s new book 'Siege,' in which Paul Manafort, once Trump’s campaign chairman but now domiciled in stir, was vulgarly upbraided by the president: 'You’re terrible, you can’t defend me.' Trump allegedly called him a 'lazy f---' and asked 'Am I a f---ing baby?' in a train wreck of a verbal assault."
