Let’s admit it. Sometimes, trolls on social media seem happy when something terrible happens, so long as it makes the other side look bad. Whether it’s fires, floods or a housing crisis, a reprehensible minority of Twitter users react with glee, so long as the story hurts their political opponents. Reasonable Americans tune it out – we’ve come to expect it.
But we usually don’t expect it from the White House. Unfortunately, nothing is out-of-bounds in the Trump era.
Rachel Maddow’s newest viral monologue calls out a current White House official for telling The Washington Post that the administration got a “reprieve” due to the unimaginable terror of last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Even worse, the official wasn’t just speaking for themselves. Listen to Maddow’s tremendous take-down of the sickos at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue as she exposes the unfeeling nihilism of the Trump team.
