As NewsBusters reported last week, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin called out vulgarian comedian Bill Maher for referring to her Down Syndrome son Trig as "retarded." On ABC´s The View Monday, co-host Barbara Walters astonishingly defended Maher saying, "I don´t think he intended it to be mean-spirited" (video follows with transcript and commentary): WHOOPI GOLDBERG: At a recent standup show in Las Vegas, comedian Bill Maher apparently called Sarah Palin’s five-year-old developmentally-challenged son Trig retarded. And Sarah blasted him on Twitter as a bully. Is that, is it, is he a bully? Is he a bad, what is he?

I’m guessing he didn’t intend it any of the other times either.

In a tyrannical state those in the favor of the Party are NEVER at fault.

Dried up old liberal hag. What if someone had insulted the Obama girls, then Katie bar the door.

A child is not just a child to these people, the politics of the parent matter too. Why, Sarah’s kids/grandkids will probably grow up to be rightwingers like her, so fire away!

Baba Wawa needs to go to the home.

Barbara Walters is retarded. I don’t mean that “mean-spiritedly”.

It won’t be long before her serial facelifts will have her talking from the back of her head. Now that will be the most interesting she’s been in years.

“Developmentally challenged” is a fair euphemism for those with Down’s Syndrome and other such difficulties. “Retard” should only apply to Maher and people like him.

“So says the woman who climbed the ladder on her back...”

Exactly...

How would what Maher said be anything but mean spirited?! Sickening b*tch, never could stand her, like her even less now, if that is possible.

She is nothing but an old media whore in more ways than one.
