Fox News — A former Hillary Clinton volunteer drew swift condemnation — and lost his job — after mocking the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL who was honored by the president during his congressional address Tuesday night.
Dan Grilo, who said in his Twitter profile that he was a former volunteer for both Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama, made the remarks after Trump paid tribute to Carryn Owens. She is the widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens, who was killed in a counterterrorism raid in Yemen last month.
Grilo followed up, apologizing for what we called a “poorly worded tweet.”
Grilo’s account soon went private, and was then deleted entirely. But the tweets were saved and archived by other Twitter users.
This is where all the “not my president” shit is so obviously stupid. You don’t have to respect the individual that becomes the President Of The United States but fuck off if you don’t respect the Office of the President Of The United States. And that’s what this is — Carryn Owens is out there in front of the entire country bawling her eyes out because she just lost her husband and you’re calling her an idiot on twitter? What a loser. She’s not an idiot she’s the ballsy, tough, heroic widow of a fallen US Navy SEAL who has the courage despite suffering unimaginable grief to show up so the nation can recognize the sacrifice of her soul mate.
Idiot? She’s a hero.
Just listen to the ZBT interview with Chaps and Mama Chaps to understand how heroic what the loved ones of military members go through back home.
