The double standards for the left are getting old.
A senior Obama aide took heat Thursday, following a bad “joke” made on social media where he “sarcastically” hoped for the deaths of President Trump, Vice President Pence, Mitch McConnell, and Paul Ryan.
One of Obama’s top advisor Ben Rhodes posted the insensitive remark shortly after the Republican leadership posed for a photograph in the Oval Office following the passage of the GOP-sponsored tax cuts.
Dan Pfeiffer, another top Obama aide commented on the photo, writing “I hope this is the photo they use on the front page of the Times on the day Trump is indicted.”
Rhodes commented back, posting “And alongside the obits for Ryan, McConnell, and Pence.”
Users on twitter were quick to call-out the disgusting comments, with one person saying, “Hoping people die? Tolerant progressive liberal I see.”
GOP Rep. Steve Scalise weighed-in on the disgusting comments, saying Rhodes “may want to reconsider” his choice of words.
