No one is considered off limits by the left. Everyone is in play for their attacks, even 10-year old boys.
Perhaps having come up with the idea from Saturday Night Live comedy writer Katie Rich, who infamously tweeted “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter,” a failed comedian by the name of Steven Spinola posted some truly vicious tweets regarding Donald Trump’s youngest son.
Spinola first posted this: “Barron Trump looks like a very handsome date-rapist-to-be.”
Not content with one vile tweet, Spinola followed up with this: “I don’t want my Mom to get raped, but if she does I hope it’s by Barron Trump—small pp would be painless & we’d win lots of money in court.”
While some of Spinola’s Twitter followers – he has about 36,000 – loved his child attacks, retweeting or liking his posts, many let him know that his attempts at sick humor were way out of bounds.
Perhaps realizing that he’d stepped outside the bounds of decency, Spinola apologized. Sort of.
“I believe in math and the stats are saying I made a bad joke. I truly apologize if it hurt Barron Trump’s feelings. And that’s all I can say.”
By his own admission, he needed “math and stats” – the number of people who criticized him for his foul jokes – to figure out that he had made a bad joke. He didn’t realize that on his own. Furthermore, his apology was contingent on whether Barron’s feelings were hurt. If Barron was not aware that he was the object of this internet bully, then no apology given.
Spinola’s resume indicates that he is a content contributor to Comedy Central. However, Comedy Central was quick to tweet that “Stephen Spinola is not currently and has never been employed by Comedy Central or any of its productions.”
The not-so-funny Steven Spinola may have just seen the end to his career in comedy.
