SNL Writer Suspended for Offensive Barron Trump Tweet

in People by


Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich has been suspended indefinitely from her job at the NBC show after she posted a controversial tweet about President Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son, Barron.

During Trump’s inauguration ceremony on Friday, January 20, Rich tweeted that “Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.”

Yikes. This tweet drew instant backlash on social media, causing the comedian to delete the tweet and deactivate her account.

Rich reinstated her account on Monday, January 23, and apologized for taking a shot at the child. “I sincerely apologize for the insensitive tweet. I deeply regret my actions and offensive words,” she wrote. “It was inexcusable & I’m so sorry.” I love SNL, and they are good at conveying political controversies in a creative and funny way. This was neither of those things.

Not a great moment for Rich. I would say that most of us would like to be different than our parents in some aspect, and to compare a 10-year-old child to a shooter is not okay. Social Media and Fake News have made this election cycle more toxic and divisive than normal. Trying to keep it focused on the politicians and not the kids is a civilized thing to do.

Some powerful politicians came to Barron’s rescue. Many people, including former first daughter Chelsea Clinton defended Barron and argued that children of politicians should be off-limits. “Barron Trump deserves the chance every child does-to be a kid,” the 36-year-old daughter of former president Bill Clinton and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton tweeted on Sunday. “Standing up for every kid also means opposing @POTUS policies that hurt kids.”

Meryl Streep Dumps on Trump

Last night the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony took place, and as awards were given and the beautiful humans of Hollywood graced the carpet, Meryl Streep was the one who stole the spotlight in her acceptance speech that dumped on President-Elect Donald Trump. In a nearly 6-minute address, while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress denounced Trump’s campaign rhetoric and criticized him for mocking a disabled reporter. If you logged on Facebook anytime after 8 pm last night through the morning, there were probably at least 1,000 shares of her video on your news feed.

And as you can imagine, everyone has an opinion on Streep using her Hollywood platform to address a political issue. Trump, in expected fashion, could not let the comments go unaddressed, but had to respond using his most obnoxious and unpresidential form of communication, Twitter. I’m sure most of Ameria wishes Twitter would disable his account.

Trump’s tweet response included:

“Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…..

Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…….

“groveling” when he totally changed a 16-year-old story that he had written to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!

Donald Trump is going to tire himself over the next four years if he responds to every major criticism that is said him again. He seems to enjoy digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole. He’s going to exhaust himself. Get over it man. A favorite quote of mine is “a wise man once said nothing.” Take note Mr. Trump.

We do not think that Meryl Streep is overrated. She might be a nasty woman, in the best way possible.
