When you think (or hope) that liberals can’t sink below a given point, you’re just setting yourself up to be disappointed.
This is the case especially when they are targeting President Donald Trump or members of his administration — it doesn’t matter what the president is doing or what the facts are — he’s wrong. The end.
That being said, I am stunned that even liberals would come after Trump for daring to encourage the people assisting those affected by the Parkland, Florida, school shooting last week.
Seriously — take a look at the tweet below and tell me how it could possibly be offensive:
Our entire Nation, w/one heavy heart, continues to pray for the victims & their families in Parkland, FL. To teachers, law enforcement, first responders & medical professionals who responded so bravely in the face of danger: We THANK YOU for your courage! https://t.co/3yJsrebZMG pic.twitter.com/ti791dENTy

“Our entire Nation, w/one heavy heart, continues to pray for the victims & their families in Parkland, FL. To teachers, law enforcement, first responders & medical professionals who responded so bravely in the face of danger: We THANK YOU for your courage!” Trump tweeted. He also included some photos being taken with at least one victim and medical personnel.
Now, that really shouldn’t have been all that controversial. He was just expressing his support for victims of a murderous shooting and the personnel who have worked so hard to assist the victims and improve the safety of all concerned.
For Wisconsin Democrat and House Rep. Mark Pocan, however, this was just too much for his little heart to bear.
How can you stand there smiling and give a thumbs up when 17 Americans were killed in one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings? Where is your courage to stand up to the @NRA, @realDonaldTrump? https://t.co/8aLJeEG7zW

“How can you stand there smiling and give a thumbs up when 17 Americans were killed in one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings?” Pocan tweeted.
“Where is your courage to stand up to the @NRA, @realDonaldTrump?”
Liberals were not satisfied to stop there, either. Many also objected to his new choice of Twitter cover photo, which shows him with a similar thumbs-up with Florida first responders.
Again, the man is just trying to encourage those who work so hard to keep up safe and well.

Oh, children, won’t you ever be happy?
It is abundantly clear at this point that there really is no level too low for Trump-haters to sink in order to get in their ankle-biting criticisms.
In the wake of last week’s school shooting we now have liberals willing to attack photos praising the dedicated professionals serving our community to feel more valid in their hatred for a president they disagree with.
