One of the most powerful media men in the world sent a rare tweet this morning regarding the political left’s obsession with the death of President Donald J. Trump.
“The left’s continued fetish for Trump’s physical harm/death is stunning…” Drudge said on Twitter.
The New Yorker cover photo depicts a bloody Trump falling flat on his face at the bottom of an escalator.
Just last week, a Facebook group called “Wake Up America” posted a photo depicting Trump’s decapitated head with a menacing “reminder” caption. This week, a shop in Portland, OR, was forced to take down a graphic image plastered on their window depicting Trump’s throat being slit. Washed-up comedienne Kathy Griffin did a photoshoot holding Trump’s decapitated head last year which cost her what was left of her meager career.
On Instagram, The New Yorker explained themselves.
“A little more than three years ago, Donald Trump descended an escalator in Trump Tower to announce his candidacy for the Presidency,” the magazine wrote. “That image makes a return in next week’s cover, ‘Thumbs-Up,’ by Barry Blitt, which remarks on Trump’s performance during and after his summit with Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki.”
Since the graphic imagery references current events, apparently that makes it okay.
Drudge, the notoriously quiet and mysterious media mogul usually deletes his tweets within hours of posting them.
