Liberals are still sore that many on the left support allowing a baby to die after being born were exposed, as was so eloquently articulated by Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam — yes, he’s still in office.
This was clear when Alexander Nazaryan, a national correspondent for Yahoo News, believe it or not, took to Twitter to wildly exaggerate a remark made by Scott Walker, the former Republican governor of Wisconsin, about infanticide.
“Scott Walker, at CPAC, says that people are taking already-born babies home from the hospital and aborting them there. I did not know that was a thing,” tweeted the alleged journalist.
Quick to support Nazaryan was Jesse Ferguson, a former spokesperson for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, who had a wild exaggeration of his own.
Ferguson tweeted: “GOP sells guns to people who shoot school children and steals babies from their parent so they die in cages. They cover up for it with the lie below.”

How’s that for “whataboutism?”
Apparently, in the eyes of liberal zealots, this accusation justifies killing babies who might survive an abortion attempt.
As for the wild exaggeration claim, see for yourself.
Walker was speaking at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, which began Thursday, and he addressed a recent bill Democrats blocked that would have required doctors to provide care for an infant who survives an “attempted abortion.”
“By the way, it’s not live-birth abortion. It’s not infanticide. It is murder,” he said. “If you take the baby home and kill the baby at home, it’s murder. And the same thing is true at the hospital.”
The natural question. of course, was if the GOP sells guns do registered Republicans get a discount?
As a registered Republican, do I get a discount?

If there was a common theme in the reactions seen online, it likely centered around two possibilities. The first being day drinking, the second being calming methods.
Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
Does Hillary still provide your alcohol or are you on your own?

You are proof that you don’t need a shred of intelligence to get a blue check mark from Twitter.

The GOP doesn't do any of those things. You need to breathe into a paper bag and calm down. https://t.co/T3XKlUb6Ls
