Obnoxious liberal Sarah Silverman trolls US Marine Corps on Twitter – and they answer her back

Never one to pass on an opportunity to disparage the fine institutions that define the United States, vile “comedian” Sarah Silverman took time this week to draw attention to a boot-camp abuse scandal that’s hit the Marine Corps.

Taking to Twitter, the foul-mouthed entertainer claimed she has a nephew now “training in Paris Island,” which is a reference to Parris Island, site of Marine Corps recruit training located in South Carolina, and expressed concern about his well being:

More on the scandal from The Washington Post:

It’s the latest wrinkle in the case of numerous drill instructors who are accused of abusing numerous recruits at what is likely the U.S. military’s best-known boot camp. In one incident, Marine recruit Raheel Siddiqui, 20, fell three stories to his death in March after running away from a drill instructor who had hit him. In another, the same drill instructor is accused of putting a different recruit in an industrial-size dryer last year and turning it on multiple times.


Craving attention as she desperately does, Silverman could not let it go at that, tweeting about sending a care package to her nephew that might get him in trouble, before stating the obvious: “I’m a idiot.”

Silverman followed that comment up with a tweet tagging the U.S. Postal Service, claiming she needs to stop shipment on a package she sent… the assumption being the likely non-existent package was to the nephew, who may or may not exist:

Either way, the U.S. Marine Corps gave attention-seeking hard-left comedian the benefit of the doubt and responded via Twitter in five-part reply that concluded with a hearty, “See you at his graduation.”

Don’t count on it, though… too much old fashioned American patriotism takes place at these ceremonies for Silverman:
