Calls for firing of ëSNLí writer after Barron Trump tweet

Katie Rich is a comedy writer who made an ill-considered joke about a ten year-old boy, who has since apologized in a manner some of us still recognize as sincerity, and is now facing career consequences for it.

Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States and prior to that he was a man intent on convincing us he deserved to be the 45th president of the United States. And this is what happened when he turned his Twitter loose on an 18 year-old woman who dared to ask him if she would be treated equally under the law during his administration.

A ten year-old boy has been peripherally mocked by an overzealous jokesmith on the internet and people demand justice be done. If he were a cancer patient without health insurance he’d be left to die while his parents lost everything fighting to keep him alive. If he were a body riddled with bullets in a school building he’d be accused of never having existed in the first place.

Agreed: Let’s leave Barron Trump alone; he never asked for any of this attention. Don’t try to tell me that it’s because attacking a child is something we simply do not do in America.
