At 7:18 pm EST this Tuesday evening, anti-Trump zealot Kathy Griffin posted a tweet calling for President Donald Trump to be injected with air, which could kill him.

Yet as of 9:00 am the following morning, the tweet remained online, raising questions about Twitter’s willingness to remove “harmful” content from its platform.

Look at the tweet below (*Language warning):

The tweet was posted in response to a report from CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta about how Trump had, during a diabetes event at the White House earlier that evening, asked whether he should inject himself with insulin.

To hear Griffin tell it, it’d be better if the president injected himself with air, which would create an air embolism.

“An air embolism, also called a gas embolism­, occurs when one or more air bubbles enter a vein or artery and block it. When an air bubble enters a vein, it’s called a venous air embolism. When an air bubble enters an artery, it’s called an arterial air embolism,” Healthline notes.

These air bubbles can travel to your brain, heart, or lungs and cause a heart attack, stroke, or respiratory failure. Air embolisms are rather rare.”

Griffin’s tweet provoked thousands of responses, with some blue checkmark “Resistance” members naturally trotting out every excuse imaginable to defend it.

Case in point (*Language warning):

But as of Wednesday morning, the majority of the responses appeared to be negative, with notable figures like Donald Trump Jr. leading the brigade and calling out Twitter for what they believed to be its inexcusable hypocrisy.

Look:

The latter tweet was in reference to Griffin’s history of self-destructive behavior — all of it motivated by her irrational, pathological hatred for America’s duly elected president.

After her most self-destructive stunt three years ago during which she performed a photo shoot while holding up a replica of the president’s head, her life and career fell apart, leading her to claim that the president had broken her.

Listen:

But her refusal to perform even the slightest introspection and change her self-harming behavior makes it clear that she’s broken herself by allowing her hatred to overcome her common sense and logic, assuming she still even has them.

In fact, her response to being outed for the tweet she posted Tuesday evening suggests she surrendered her rationality to hatred a long time ago.

After the Washington Examiner broke a story accusing her of advocating “for someone to stab” the president with a syringe full of air, she gleefully replied, “I sure did.”

Look:

The irony is that it appears she’s also broken Twitter by exposing the social network’s left-wing bias and hypocrisy.

After all, Twitter is the same network that locked conservative commentators Diamond and Silk out of their accounts last month for simply questioning the country’s widely panned lockdown policies. Yet the network won’t do anything about Griffin openly admitting to advocating “for someone to stab” the president.
