Reverse the parties and there would be national outrage. But it’s okay. Stuff like this isn’t a grievous violation of political norms. It’s just Democrat business as usual.
A staff member to former President Barack Obama deleted a tweet on Friday, suggesting that she hopes President Donald Trump dies after he announced that he tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Zara Rahim, who worked in the Office of Digital Strategy for Obama, as well as serving as the national spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, deleted her tweet shortly after being published, but it was seen by a number of people across social media, who shared screenshots of it.
“It’s been against my moral identity to tweet this for the past four years, but, I hope he dies,” Rahim wrote in the since-deleted tweet.
Will Hillary or Biden be asked to condemn this sort of thing? Don’t bet on it.
Rahim is a daughter of Bangladeshi immigrants who joined up with Obama’s people, then went on to work for Hillary, and had a major role at Vogue.
