Internet rains hell on ‘piece of sh*t’ Alex Jones for tweeting photos of anti-‘snowflake’ gun during deadly school shooting

Published

on

In the midst of a deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, InfoWars host Alex Jones tweeted two close-up photos of a gun etched with epithets about “snowflakes,” “unicorns” and “libturds.” It was accompanied only by a heart-eyes emoji.

It took almost no time for Twitter to pick up on the terrible timing of Jones’ post.

“The Sandy Hook truther decided to post some sweet gun pics right in the middle of another school shooting,” journalist Parker Molloy tweeted, referencing Jones’ belief that the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in 2012 was a “false flag” operation planned by anti-gun government forces.

“What a ghoul,” the journalist added.

“It’s really weird to see a coward who never served in the military gleefully post a pic of an assault rifle,” LGBTQ rights activist Charlotte Clymer noted, “as though he’s some kind of credible patriot, in order to exploit the deaths of children in a school shooting for his awful politics.”

As news agencies and journalists continuously covered the Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting, Jones tweeted about it only twice in the aftermath. His first post promoted an InfoWars article about a video taken inside one of the classrooms during the shooting, and he also retweeted a conspiracy theory based on an unverified Instagram account allegedly belonging to the shooter.

The theory suggests the shooter is Muslim because he tweeted “Allahu Akbar,” though Alex Griswold, a journalist with the conservative Washington Free Beacon, noted that the posts actually appear to be Islamophobic in nature.

Writing on Twitter, Luntz complained that the elevator at the Hotel Imperial in Vienna, Austria has not been functioning for three straight days -- and said that the European social welfare state was responsible for this purportedly dire situation.

"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."
