Is there no limit to how low Democrats will go?
While most Americans were spending New Year’s Eve pondering how to lead better lives in 2018, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) used the final hours of 2017 to attack an 11-year-old boy.
On Sunday, Cohen tweeted blasted President Trump for allegedly not spending enough time with his young son, Barron.
He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family. Never see him with Barron. You’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show. No movies, sports viewing either just Fox! He will start a war! https://t.co/RFuJksiQyk

“He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family,” the congressman wrote. “Never see him with Barron. You’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show. No movies, sports viewing either just Fox! He will start a war!”
Cohen has been one of the most ardent opponents of the president on Capitol Hill. Last year, he introduced articles of impeachment against the Republican commander-in-chief.
The Tennessee lawmaker was responding to a tweet by the Daily Beast’s Sam Stein, who accused President Trump of hypocrisy for playing golf after criticizing former president Barack Obama for the amount of time he spent on the golf course.
i sincerely don’t care that Trump plays golf. god speed. but the sheer amount he plays does spotlight how insincere Obama’s critics were about his golfing habits. here’s a little sampling of people who’ve gone suddenly quiet on the topic

The president’s youngest son has been the target of scrutiny by liberals on several occasions.
In June, Barron was pictured playing with a “fidget spinner” as he exited Air Force One. The popular toy began as a concentration aid for children who suffer from ADHD, but is now widely used for recreation in general.
The photo led many liberals to suggest Barron is a “special needs” child.
Special needs kids need special attention when exposed to the realities of the world. Maybe a fidget spinner would help Barron.

Shortly after the 2016 election, actress Rosie O’Donnell shared a video that claimed Barron has autism. The celebrity faced enormous backlash for promoting the theory.
Liberals also mocked the 11-year-old after the Trump family claimed Kathy Griffin’s picture of a bloody Donald Trump head frightened the president’s son.

Rep. Cohen later said he did not mean to attack Barron.
Ok he is self centered! Don’t need to be a doc for that.Didnt attack a child nor put him in vitriol & hatred. It’s you conjuring that up and others of similar tastes. Didn’t lash out at you, a “Muslim woman” either. In fact I’m against the Muslim travel ban. https://t.co/nTsX7WmD56

Twitter users didn’t give the congressman a free pass.
NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS how he spends family time w/Barron or any family member. Trump deserves his privacy and isn’t required to satisfy your curiosity or expectations. He’s protecting Barron from vultures whose hate would target his son or their relationship. Shame on you.

Guess you wouldn’t mind an adversary posting his opinions of your family relationships on public media then. What business is it of Cohen’s? None. Criticizing Trump in his role as President is one thing, but about his relationship with Barron or family is none of his beeswax.

Democrats attack POTUS for tweets, while they use tweets to attack him and his family. Spend your time as he does, and get things done… like HE does. Democrats have no record of success, while his record is brilliant in his first year.

You’re trying really hard to get those 15 minutes aren’t you? Maybe you should read the Bible a little more, as it seems as though you think you have the right to judge others. To the delight of many, the insignificant and daft like yourself will be out of a job soon!

You used a kid to further your political purposes. What a big tough guy you are!

Whether you directly or indirectly did…or didn’t as you claim a Presidents child should never be part of the story. Never saw Obama or Clinton spend time with their kids. Never saw you spend time with yours
