After Lizzy Waites, a trans woman living in Pierre, South Dakota committed suicide last Wednesday, the suicide note she posted to Facebook was taken over by harassing Trump trolls, the Daily Beast reports.

Waites’ partner Amanda said she found out about Lizzy’s suicide when she saw the note that was posted to Facebook, which was scheduled to be posted after she was already gone.

Amanda said she called the police “to do a safety check” but it was too late at that point. It was as Amanda was writing a comment on Lizzy’s post — her “last letter,” she calls it — when she realized the Trump trolls starting to comment on the post.

A user named “Oi McVeigh” whose profile picture was a photo of Donald Trump pointing and laughing, commented, “Lol good riddance.”

Another user named Jaroslav Tipek commented, “I am glad he is gone.”

Amanda said that when the comments first started, she thought they were friends of Lizzy’s but quickly realized that was not the case. “I replied back telling them they’re assholes, because they’re assholes,” she said.

A user with the name “Donny J. Trump” commented, “#TRANSLIVESDONTMATTER.” Another posted a photo of Trump with a caption that read, “America just became a little bit greater.”

Amanda explained how she quickly realized the hate was coming from an anti-Trans hate site where Liz had had her name posted after she legally changed it.

“When Liz first transitioned, she got her name posted to [the site],” Amanda said. “It’s this big collection of horrible, awful troll people.”

She shared, “The one group of people that Liz would’ve been least comfortable with has absolutely taken over and is terrorizing everyone who loves her.”

Amanda explained that it took her awhile to find a way to have the post removed. She reached out to Facebook and tried to remember Lizzy’s old passwords.

She said she finally had some luck when she was able to access Lizzy’s email address on a browser of an old computer the couple shared. She was able to request a new Facebook password through that account and was able to get on Lizzy’s Facebook and delete all the threatening comments.

“You do not want that to be her last memory,” Amanda said. “She had such a big heart. She wanted to take care of everyone and I feel like she knew too much, if that makes sense.”

Thursday will mark one month since the election, and "the president has spent that entire time throwing a loud, pants-filling tantrum," said Colbert. "If we don't change presidents soon, he's going to get a rash."

He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.

‘Book her on Jeanine Pirro’: Witness ridiculed after going viral during Giuliani’s Michigan hearing

Published

Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.

“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”

Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.

Published

The military spending bill is coming up for a vote in the "Lame Duck Session" but the two major things President Donald Trump wanted aren't happening now.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe was walking through the halls of the U.S. Capitol with the president on speakerphone again, this time telling him the bad news about the bill. Inhofe was caught by reporters in a Capitol Hill restaurant several months ago loudly talking to Trump on a speakerphone. In that call, he promised Trump that there would not be name changes to Confederate bases.
