Cuomo bashes America, then Hillary praises anthem-kneeling kid. Twitter explodes on Dem Party’s new theme

This is the Democrat Party.

Hillary Clinton applauded an 11-year-old girl who “took a knee” during the pledge of allegiance at school, cheering her on in a tweet, exclaiming, “Keep up the good work.”

“It takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice, especially when you’re 11! Keep up the good work Mariana,” Clinton tweeted.

The failed Democratic presidential nominee was reacting to a NowThis report on a Maryland sixth-grader who followed in the footsteps of NFL players by refusing to stand when her class recited the pledge.

Mariana Taylor was reprimanded by her teacher at Catonsville Middle School but not punished, according to a report by The Washington Post in May which described her as a student “with strong beliefs about racial injustice, sexism, gay rights and President Trump’s proposed wall at the Mexico border.”

“It is in my rights that I am allowed to kneel,” the middle-schooler declared.

Clinton’s praise for the 11-year-old protester came just as Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo came under fire for bashing America in comments he made during a speech.

“We’re not gonna make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said, prompting his office to scramble into damage-control.

Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro slammed Clinton for her “despicable” praise of Taylor.

“It’s a move toward the left, progressivism, socialism and you know what? Keep moving ladies and gentlemen because you’re going to move right off the political spectrum,” Pirro told Lou Dobbs on Fox Business Network Wednesday.

Plenty of Twitter users agreed and blasted Clinton over her remarks.
