They are racing.
The media have everyone in a hyper state of finding offense everywhere.
See the terror in his eyes? He’s running from you Ellen DeGenerate.
I love the “schadenfreude”, and the circular firing squad that is the liberal worldview, but in fairness I look at most accusations as stupid and childish.
As this is.
Psssst. Usain! You have some kind of ugly growth on your back.
She already had some trouble with that pet thing a few years back. God forbid one does something “wrong” with the animals.
Harmless pic — unless you are a liberal hack driving a wedge issue that’s harmful to American liberty and culture.
This will be over in a day or two. She’ll make a brief apology on her show, and that will be the end of it. Had she been a conservative, there would be a “media firestorm” for the next couple of weeks, and no amount of apologies would be sufficient.
Me too,...let them devour each other.
If she was a conservative they’d rip her apart. But since she’s a liberal they’ll say, “It’s OK. She apologized.”
Yep, people would demand advertisers to withdraw.
Ellen The Degenerate
I guess it was more the caption.
The tweet's caption from Ellen reads "This is how I'm running errands from now on."
Wasn’t she involved with some stupid spat where the liberals were melting down because Trig Palin was standing on his service dog? But not a word when Ellen’s daughter was using the family dog for a step stool. It was something like that.
Personally, I find the photo quite funny and even makes it more impressive that he would still win even with someone on his back. BUT...
Even though I don’t care for her politics, she is funny. Her mistake was apologizing. She would have fared better by saying, “are you serious? Ok, my checkbook is now closed to all politicians....period.
Political Correctness eating their own, gotta love it!!
