Although I watched the Joint Session of Congress the other night, I enjoyed it so much that I watched it again earlier.
Now UNEMPLOYED jerk of the year, Dan Grilo, sparked outrage Tuesday night when during a three-minute standing ovation for Carryn Owens, widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens at the Joint Session of the United States Congress, Grilo mocked the widow in a nasty tweet.
The blowback was immediate and harsh enough that Grilo walked back his tweet, deleting the tweet and his twitter account.

Hatred from the other side. I would think this is beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, but it’s not! pic.twitter.com/nNVfFWJmDh

Grilo who formerly volunteered for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama eventually apologized but the damage was done and karma was about to kick in on Grilo sooner rather than later.
…Grilo followed up, apologizing for what we called a “poorly worded tweet.”
Grilo’s account soon went private, and was then deleted entirely. But the tweets were saved and archived by other Twitter users.
Grilo’s LinkedIn page says he works as a principal for the Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group. But as of Wednesday morning, Grilo’s profile page on the site had been deleted, and the company later confirmed that an employee had sent what they called “an offensive and inappropriate tweet” regarding the Gold Star family[…]
Liberty Advisor distancing itself from the kerfuffle terminated Grilo earlier today and issued the following statement:

It is still open season Grilo who has a new twitter account, @Daniel__Grilo. After all, you can run but you can’t hide. Unfortunately, Grilo is not the only Progressive who attacked this Gold Star family. The ugly left literally had a meltdown.

Excellent analysis of President Trump’s first Joint Congress session.
What You Thought I Went Away… by JCscuba
At a time in our nation’s history when We the People haven’s been as bitterly divided since the Civil War and perhaps The Vietnam War, Donald Trump delivered an amazing speech outlining plans to overcome divisiveness and in doing so “Make America Great Again.”
He received 94 standing ovations with 25 times his oration being momentarily stopped as those in attendance went wild with enthusiasm.
Wouldn’t it be a tremendous idea to have members of congress not sit on the left or right but mingle and sit with each other to fill the hall in the Capitol Building?
In a further show of divisiveness, many democrat members of congress chose to wear white in honor of the “Suffragettestts.”
The congressional members on the left were so awestruck with President Trump’s performance they could not even stand up and clap when he promised paid family leave for illness for workers in the private sector.
The always vapid and confused Nancy Pelosi had absolutely no clew what hit here.

Raise your hand if you expected Tuesday night to conclude with former Obama administration official and CNN commentator Van Jones declaring, “[Trump] became president of the United States in that moment, period.”
That is what Jones said after the evening’s most emotional point was replayed, and he even remarked[…]
I am so sick of that jerk, Juan Williams. Good for Bill O’Reilly who called that propagandist out.
