Scratch a liberal, find a hatemonger. On Tuesday, actor Michael Ian Black and others used the tragic Gatlinburg, Tennessee, fire to issue messages of hate against Trump supporters.
“When Trump supporters voted to “burn it all down,” I bet they didn’t think it would start with Tennessee,” Black wrote.
Twitchy said the tweet disappeared even as they were writing up their post, but they did get a screen capture of the offensive message:
Is Biden's Vaccine Mandate Unconstitutional?
And they have called Trump supporters and conservatives hateful! You actually enjoy watching Gatlinburg burn?! VERY special kind of stupid! https://t.co/d4CLr61OiJ

Black backed off his hateful message and claimed it was a joke. We’re still waiting for the punch line…
Right. Because an entire town engulfed in flames is a real knee-slapper, right?
Insensitive doesn’t even begin to describe this.

Another critic added:
A search of Twitter also found that many were upset with the Clinton News Network for obsessing about Trump’s tweets while ignoring the fact that an city is on fire:

Not that they really care, but I think they lost all credibility a long time ago.
One person advised:
ProTip: when attempting hot takes, don't go full Michael Ian Black. You speed past witty, straight into assholedom. https://t.co/3l7KUaVDgX

As a final note, Black turned the conversation — if it can be called that — to racism and his view that people who voted for Trump are white supremacists:
Nothing more need be said at this point…
- DISASTER: Gatlinburg, Tennessee Engulfed in Flames
- Racist hatemongers on Twitter: Happy Thanksgiving to everyone except white people
- Liberal media hatemongers celebrate death of conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly
- Liberal tolerance: Lone Trump supporter in Chappaqua snubbed, hit with hate: ‘I hope you die’
- Liberal hatemongers cheer death of Nancy Reagan
