Gun control advocacy group Moms Demand Action’s Shannon Watts has officially earned the blue ribbon for Worst Tweet of the Day in her race-baiting, anti-Second Amendment, anti-law response to President Trump’s offer on Twitter to help the parents of 10-month-old Charlie Gard, whose life is currently hanging on the whim of U.K. officials and the Orwellian-named European Court on Human Rights.
“If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so,” Trump tweeted Monday.
In response to Trump’s compassionate offer of help for the 10-month-old and his distraught parents — whose wish to give him experimental but potentially life-saving treatment in the U.S. has been denied by U.K. health care officials despite the parents having raised $1.6 million to try to save the life of their dying child — Watts resorted to the standard identity politics of the Left, and threw in a reference to Kate’s Law and a jab at the group leading the charge to defend the Second Amendment for good measure.
“Anyone notice that the people Trump wants to help are white? From #CharlieGard to #KatesLaw to the leaders of the @NRA,” wrote Watts.
Twitchy called out Watts for the “despicable” tweet:
So Watts responded by posting evidence that Trump’s a big fat “racist.”
“Spoiler alert – Donald Trump had a history of racist behavior,” tweeted Watts, adding a link to an article by Huffington Post on “13 Examples of Donald Trump Being Racist.”
But others on Twitter weren’t buying Watts’ race-baiting response to an offer of help for a dying child. A few quotes from various tweets:
“Oh look, another person who says people only by their skin color. I wonder what that’s called. Could it be, RACISM?”
“No, only you. You need to stop projecting your own prejudices on to other people.”
“I’ve noticed you’re a true Obama disciple….divisive, racist, lying puppet. By the way, your fake virtue signaling is really see-through.”
“What the hell is wrong with you? This is a baby.”
“As if liberals care about babies — 60+ million dead babies since the late 70s thanks to abortion.”
