Fake political violence is back in style this week after last week’s outrage over the Kingsman meme where fake violence made everyone angry. This week, Barbara Streisand has joined Tom Arnold and certain CNN employees by wishing for Donald Trump’s death and sharing her sick fantasies about it.

The cartoon Streisand shared on Twitter depicts the president impaled and bleeding on the heel of Nancy Pelosi’s shoe. Absolutely no one on the left is condemning it, nor is anyone at CNN demanding that Nancy Pelosi condemn it. Let us all remember, for a moment, the outrage that the left experienced over Kingsman meme, which the president did not make or share. The upset was so ridiculous, the White House had to respond.

CNN even put out a statement condemning the meme! “Sadly, this is not the first time that supporters of the President have promoted violence against the media in a video they apparently find entertaining-but it is by far and away the worst. The images depicted are vile and horrific. The President and his family, the White House, and the Trump campaign need to denounce it immediately in the strongest possible terms. Anything less equates to a tacit endorsement of violence and should not be tolerated by anyone.”

We are all still waiting for them to demand that Pelosi, the Democrat Party, and anyone connected to the murder cartoon denounce it. I think this tweet sums it up pretty well.
The Kingsman meme was treated like Trump created it himself & is a death threat to MSM; but these assholes find nothing wrong w/ Madonna's blow up WH, Depp's actor assassinating POTUS, Griffith's beheaded DJT, the new Times Sq ad tying him up nor this. All just harmless fun, huh? https://t.co/14f0U3iXHO
