That’s really and sadly the point, Darren Stehle. Sarah Sanders may not personally be an asshole, I don’t really know. But she works for and apologizes for the the kind of assholes who publicly mocked an immigrant, mentally disabled child to a national audience, showing all the compassion and humanity of one of the zombies on the Walking Dead.

Did you hear about that? Just insane. It’s one of the incidents I was thinking about as I wrote the article.
