Business Insider puts cross-hairs on Trump photo; Palin was crucified for that

What a difference a few years, and a political party registration makes.

Remember how the liberal media hyperventilated over Sarah Palin’s PAC using cross-hairs to mark targeted districts, one of which included U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, D-Ariz., who would later survive being shot by a madman who killed six other people?

Business Insider posted a story this week about the South Carolina GOP targeting Donald Trump, the party’s presidential front-runner, over a potential third party run and used an image of Trump in cross-hairs to promote the story, the Gateway Pundit reported.

A social media user captured the image and posted it on Twitter:

Business Insider appears to have removed the image, but social media users had their say regardless. Here’s a sampling or responses from Twitter:
