Politico reporter Marc Caputo mocked attendees of President Donald Trump’s Tampa rally Tuesday night, referring to them as toothless “garbage people.” …
CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta tweeted footage of being jeered by Trump supporters and claimed to be “very worried that the hostility whipped up by Trump and some in conservative media will result in somebody getting hurt.” Reacting to Acosta’s remarks, Caputo mocked the appearance of Trump rallygoers. “If you put everyone’s mouths together in this video, you’d get a full set of teeth,” he wrote.
When the insult sparked swift backlash, Caputo became defensive and condemned his critics for not being more outraged by the crowd’s treatment of Acosta. “Oh I like a good joke…that was just at the expense of others, which I think isn’t quite so funny. Not your best tweet, Marc,” one Twitter user said. “Oh, no!” Caputo replied. “I made fun of garbage people jeering at another person as they falsely accused him of lying and flipped him off. Someone fetch a fainting couch.”
Hillary made a serious mistake in calling us deplorables. The Democrats are not the party of working people. In fact, they have nothing but contempt for you. They are condescending to blacks and other minorities too. The party is controlled by left wingers and academics.
Marvelous. Scratch a lefty and look what you find. This attitude is not uncommon, I can attest from common experience. Many lefties so want to believe they are superior to most people simply by virtue of being PC lefties.
