After George Zimmerman Rescued Family, Hilarious #ThanksGeorge Twitter Feed Was Born

On Monday, it was reported that George Zimmerman helped drag a family from an overturned truck just a mile from the spot where he shot Trayvon Martin. Of course, the right immediately responded with smug satisfaction, saying it confirmed their assertion that Zimmerman was a hero all along for (apparently), ridding the world of a Skittles-bearing teenager who sometimes smoked weed.

The rescue hasn’t gone unnoticed on Twitter, where an hilarious twitter feed erupted. Here are some of the posts on #thanksgeorge:

Loved this one:

"Zimmerman just shoved me down a flight of stairs so that I wouldn't slip on a banana peel. Whew. Close call. #ThanksGeorge

I was about to paint my nails when Super George sailed in and said "that color won't go with your outfit." #ThanksGeorge.
