David Axelrod, one of Barack Obama’s political gurus, poses an interesting thought on social media.
It concerns “comedian” Kathy Griffin’s disgraceful video showing her holding a “decapitated head” purporting to be that of Donald J. Trump.
CNN fired Griffin for her utterly crass stunt, which she initially thought of as an “artsy fartsy statement.” So long, kid. Don’t let the door hit in your backside.
But then, Axelrod wonders, how does Ted “Motor City Madman” Nugent get a pass for the endless string of grotesque statements he has made about, oh, Barack H. Obama. You know, things like calling him a “subhuman mongrel” and a litany of other vile epithets.
The president even invited Nugent to the White House for an intimate dinner, along with Sarah Palin and Kid Rock.
Well, Mr. President? Is there just a touch of a double standard here?
I’ll weigh in. I believe there is.
