MOOving Right Along
Until yesterday morning.
Not one, not two, but three people of my acquaintance posted links to an article where the author purportedly was condemning people who bash Donald Trump's young son, Barron. The snip from the article that appeared on FB said that it just wasn't right to go after a politician's child. No one I know is doing this, but I thought I'd click through, read the article, and perhaps share it. You know, kind of Just In Case.
Clicking led to the article, a passionate plea to not pick on, not make fun of, this young boy. The article was even written well.
But the author apparently had a hidden agenda, some kind of alternative facts if you will, because at the end of the article were photographs of the very nasty, unkind and inflammatory tweets about Barron that she had just finished condemning in her pious, righteous article! I felt angry. I felt duped. I felt like a COW* who was about to let out a Major Moo.
Author, listen up! What you did is NOT what she meant by "When they go low, we go high." Not a bit.
