Response to Hissyspit (Original post)

9. It used to be a RW meme that Hillary snubbed Gold Star mothers...

It was a RW email that made the rounds when she was a senator.

It was, of course, phony, and slapped the name of a WW2 hero onto it just to give it more fraudulent outrage factor.

The truth of the matter is that the GS mothers dropped by her office while they were in Washington, unplanned and without an appointment, when she wasn't there (and IIRC wasn't in town).

Some anonymous Wingnut spun that into her deliberately spurning them. And tacked the name of the first WW2 Hellcat ace, Hamilton McWorter, onto it to drive the meme among its intended audience. McWorter was mystified as to how or why his name got attached.

Now Trump is doing it for real. Anyone know what the Wingnut email circle jerks are saying?
