Just when you thought #NeverTrump Republicans couldn’t go any lower, they have jumped to the defense of a Hollywood director whose pedophilia obsessed Tweets were so indefensible Disney fired him.
Big League Politics previously reported that Ben Shapiro jumped to the aid of “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn, but now he has friends joining with him.
Shapiro’s fellow #NeverTrump media figures Erick Erickson and David French have now put out Tweets in opposition to Gunn’s firing.
I think Disney was wrong to fire James Gunn.

No. This is wrong. His old tweets were 100 percent offensive and gross, but this is not how we judge people. This is not how we determine the fate of a person’s career: https://t.co/U8hcO403Lw

To give some context, in case you haven’t yet seen them, this is a small sample of the comments Gunn sent out (Graphic Language below):
Erickson and French are both leading figures in the #NeverTrump movement. French even considered running against Trump as an Independent before bowing out, proving it was nothing more than a publicity stunt.
They didn’t use the same logic used to defend Gunn to defend Barr, one must wonder why? Could it be that Barr is pro-Trump, while Gunn has publicly spoken out against the President?
