Hateful Twitter nutters use Nancy Reagan’s death to bash First Lady Michelle Obama

With the advent of Twitter, the death of any controversial figure immediately leads to both condolences and insults directed at the dearly departed, and the passing of former First Lady Nancy Reagan was certainly no exception.

While there are more than a few rude comments directed at the wife of former President Ronald Reagan, her death also prompted some conservatives to lash out out at current First Lady Michelle Obama.

Fox News host Charles Gasparino went a step further blasting President Barack Obama for not immediately issuing a statement on the former first lady, writing, “fitting: no comment yet from @POTUS on nancy reagan’s death because he’s on a golf trip.”

Michelle Obama, however, was the main focus on a day for some when most Americans — both conservative and liberal — paid condolences to the Reagan family.

2. I know

They can't even take the high road on the day Mrs. Reagan died. Bitter. As for Fox News, they know their audience.

3. Sadly, I am not at all surprised.

The "Featured Comment" pretty much sums things up:

"How vile and base it is to memorialize a woman at her passage, by denigrating another."


To be expected from vile, base people...
