Grifters gonna still grift:




Edit: the Tweet I linked to appears to be from a winger, but they did delete the tweet.

Edit 2: even the grifters deleted reference to it.

1. So I'm confused. Did that happen or not?

5. It happened.

I think they deleted it because of the part about Trump relishing it. It seems he told the person who shouted to "be nice." (Maybe)

When President Trump mentioned Obama, someone from the crowd shouted, “Monkey!” and the president relished in it.

8. "be nice" is a wink and nod to someone who just said something you agree with but want to distance

yourself from.

10. I get that.

One thing nobody disputes is that it happened. That's not why the LP deleted the tweet.

Either they were uncomfortable with how they characterized it, or they were uneasy about tagging Tom Tillis personally.

Maybe they'll explain why they deleted it.

EDIT: Apparently the guy yelled "Spygate."

7. No, it didn't happen.

This guy is an expert in having to listen to Trump time and time and time, again!

4. I thought I did, too.

I then listened to it several times, and took into consideration the context of what trump was saying. It was spygate.

6. Maybe because the LP tweet said he relished it.

Now we're learning he told the person "be nice" or something like that.

9. Text of the original tweet

When President Trump mentioned Obama, someone from the crowd shouted, “Monkey!” and the president relished in it.

Disgusting.

Do you approve of this @ThomTillis?

16. Why?

I think Lincoln Project deleted it bc it was too offensive...their ads are biting commentary but even for them this is off limits and including this in "reason #125 of why we hate Trump and his sycophants" ad would get them nowhere......like calling out the N word...ya just don't say it...
