‘Gaslighting racist d*ckstain’: Comics writer unleashes on conservatives ‘trying to capitalize off of hate and ignorance’

On Monday, Rob Sheridan, a writer with Vertigo Comics, unleashed an epic Twitter tirade against conservatives who support the Trump administration policy separating kids from their parents at the border.


In particular, Sheridan tangled with conservative actor Michael Knowles, who'd retweeted an Ann Coulter post calling the migrant children detained at the border "child actors."

Smearing desperate people as somehow faking their suffering to generate a photo op is all too common on the right.

In the spring, when Palestinians were getting killed by Israeli snipers, Mideast hardliners claimed that the victims were risking their lives to mislead the world about their plight.
