But the real reason was not because she was genuinely sorry, but in a futile attempt to stem the hemorrhaging of her advertisers. Which does not appear to have worked.
If you worship mammon, as is the case with most people like her, the connection is probably more clear.

And yes, the 1st amendment means I can say what I want to anyone. Just like Hogg can.
Sure, you can say whatever you want. But if you want to be taken seriously, why not respond with something relevant and on topic?

I wonder what would be the uproar if Matt Stone and Trey Parker do a South Park episode parodying David Hogg?

LOL. I also notice this from the 2 examples:

A best-selling children’s book author and “Jeopardy!” champion is under fire for mocking

and


After coming under fire from other Twitter users, Ms. Rich deleted her

Notice that folks? Thats because its wrong.

So they are literally holding up 2 examples where people were under fire for acting badly, and using that to justify themselves doing similar things.

Perhaps when you verbalize something the country is interested in hearing.

It wasn't two examples; it was at least four.

The point is, the left is upset about 17 year old who voluntarily inserted himself into political debate and the national spotlight.

But the left not upset about mean spirited attacks on an 11 year old who has nothing to do with any of this.

And then you try to deflect by saying it's "whataboutism".

Laura I. is losing sponsors and the left feels that is well deserved. For calling someone "whiny".
FGS.

Nothing happened to any of the people who mocked Barron Trump. And he was called things 10 times worse than "whiny".

The only CHIEF of "Widdle Feewwings hurt" is their CIC/ aka POTUS> He hits at everybody regardless how PETTY!! Yet somehow SHUTS his face when some affair from 12 years ago pipes up! Hasn't his diehard supporters realized.. POTUS (DJT) is an empty SUIT .. you know that "Wizard of OZ" tiny pathetic individual behind that curtain!!

DJT and his pathetic ones who blame teenagers and those less privileged and condemn their rights is simply deplorable. Course I seem to recall the reference of " Basket of Deplorable's" referenced to over 2 years ago!

I swear we have a large portion of that basket located here on this site.. LOL!! I always used the rule of thumb.. Take it from where it comes... and when it noted that 20% + outsourced "Trolls" from foreign entities .. is NOTHING ... Majority of American Voter's actually do care about issues like this. IMPORTANT: The VOTE is whitewall "Right the SHIP" !! Best just Smile and chuckle at such threads like this.. It's nothing more than panic blogging.. trying to support aPOTUS who has so many legalizes and ZERO lawyers on multi fronts to defend him!

Claiming victim is ALL DJT can do.. as is his usual Cultists!! This thread solidified the TRUE FEAR they are reacting to!! BTW~~ There is a REASON DJT HID under the covers this past week!!

Come to think of it - seems like the headline is a pretty letter-perfect example of the tired strategy of "They're fighting back! - that makes us the victims!"

Little soy boy needs to close his mouth for the weekend and get a chocolate bunny for his Easter basket, or dye some hard boiled eggs.
