SICK: Liberals Cheer Victim of Gruesome NASCAR Crash Because He Supports President Trump
A gruesome car wreck at the Daytona 500 on Monday night has millions of people throughout America praying for racer Ryan Newman, who was the victim of the crash on the final lap of the famed annual race.
His injuries thankfully turned out to not be life threatening, and he is expected to recover from his injuries, but before any of that information was known, liberals were already celebrating the incident on social media because of the racer’s huge support for President Donald Trump.
Newman was an outspoken supporter of the President and said he looked forward to his appearance at the Daytona 500.

Here is a collection of some of the most classless Twitter posts made by liberals in the aftermath of the wreck:

Wow. Praying for Ryan Newman. That was a horrible crash at #Daytona500. It’s really sickening to see some leftists use Ryan’s endorsement of @realDonaldTrump to say that he deserved the crash or worse yet possible death. This insanity is out of control. Please pray for Ryan. pic.twitter.com/zOiGtWTU4v

After President Trump posted his thoughts and prayers for Newman, incensed liberals attacked the President and the racer in a fit of blind rage.
We all hope and pray Ryan Newman is OK.
But I will point out that Donald Trump takes hours (if ever) to send "hopes and prayers" to shooting victims, but moments after a NASCAR driver is in an accident, Trump sends well wishes.
What's the difference? NASCAR fans are his base. pic.twitter.com/PKpG8sxS8r

You could give two craps about Ryan Newman, so glad the race rained out on you, I was boycotting yesterday and a matter of fact if you hadn’t insisted on your redo of the #Bushcopycat, the race would have started on time, the outcome may have been different. #Selfish

However, some liberals did show some grace and pushed back against the stream of unhinged left-wing haters who were wishing ill on Newman and President Trump.
I'm a Liberal. I'm also a human being. For those of you bringing Trump into the Ryan Newman tragedy, kindly go fuck yourself! Tf is wrong with you??#Daytona500

As someone who opposes Trump, I’d like to apologize for those who are politicizing the Ryan Newman crash. At this point, his political preference is irrelevant. He’s a human being with a family. I just hope he’s ok.

It sucks to see leftists saying Ryan Newman deserves to die just because he is a Trump supporter. As much as I don't like Trump (as with half if America), it's not fun mock those whose beliefs are different than yours. Democrat, Republican, or Independent.

If you’re bringing Donald Trump up and trying to politicize Ryan Newman’s horrible accident just stop. I hate Trump and I’m not a big NASCAR fan but this is not the time or the place. My thoughts and prayers are with Ryan Newman and his family. I hope he’s ok.

President Trump showed up on Sunday for the Daytona 500 race that was ultimately rained out and rescheduled for Monday:
NASCAR announced on Sunday afternoon that it would be postponing its 62nd Daytona 500, which kicked off with a visit from President Trump earlier in the day, due to inclement weather.
“Today’s 62nd running of the #DAYTONA500 has been postponed due to inclement weather, the stock-car racing company confirmed in a tweet on Sunday. “The race will resume on Monday at 4 PM ET on FOX.”
According to The Associated Press, the postponement comes after the racing event was already delayed twice earlier in the day. The forecast from The Weather Channel show partly cloudy skies for the Daytona area on Monday.
The first delay reportedly took place shortly after the president and first lady Melania Trump went for a ceremonial lap around the around Daytona International Speedway in the presidential motorcade. He is the first president to ever do so, Fox News reports.
Trump, who was met with loud applause from fans upon his arrival to the track on Sunday, was also able to serve as grand marshal for the race. Trump is the second president in history to hold the title, after President George W. Bush in 2004.
The eventual winner of the 62nd annual Daytona 500 race was Denny Hamlin, who won the race for the third time in five years.
