Boner (Round Two) for September 18th, 2017

Boner Candidate #1: DID HE YELL “FORE!?”

President Donald Trump shared a tweet Sunday morning that included the image of him hitting a golf ball and striking Hillary Clinton. The tweet came from a user named @Fuctupmind, whose Twitter bio indicates that he wants Clinton to be in prison and believes the conspiracy theory that Democrats had something to do with the death of former Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich. It was not unusual to see violent and misogynistic imagery directed at Clinton at Trump rallies during the 2016 presidential campaign. Last week, Clinton noted that there was significant criticism directed toward comedian Kathy Griffin when she held up a fake decapitated head of Trump ― and added that she didn’t remember the same outcry over images of her.
