Barbara Walters Defends Maher Calling Trig Palin Retarded: ‘I Donīt Think He Intended it
Newsbusters ^ | John Nolte

Posted on 06/17/2013 4:42:17 PM PDT by Nachum

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?

Wa Wa has always been retarded. I despise those that think it is okay to pick on and disparage little kids.

Trig has never done anything to Maher. Maher should feel shame, the fact that he does not shows he is low class trash.

Barbara, you should know than anyone else as you have a special needs child. I think you know he meant it as cruel and I am ashamed of you for backing him.

If she had only stopped at “I don’t think”, I could have agreed with her. Since she continued past those three words all I can say is, senility is sad.

Today's word is crone. Crone: An ugly, withered old woman; a hag. (Middle English, from Old North French carogne, carrion, cantankerous woman, from Vulgar Latin carōnia, carrion, from Latin carō, carn-, flesh.)

But you could say that about any slur. I’m sure there are words people once used that Whoopi would object to now.

Has the worthless, dried-up, old hag Walters slipped further into dementia? Walters, and the rest of the dyke Liberal sisterhood on the ‘’view’’, are useless feeders. Unfit to waste the same oxygen that young Trig needs to survive and flourish. May they each contract horrible diseases and suffer excruciating pain and linger in agony until Satan finally claims their putrid souls.

Oh....yeah...hey, ‘’just joking’’
There. Makes it allll better now, doesn’t it.

We should make allowances for Barbara Walters since she is probably senile and needs a job to pay for her check implants.

Good point.
In fact, way, long ago, in my younger, naive, uneducated days, being a ‘’Lefty’’, I can attest to the FACT that Liberal, Leftist gals were/are the easiest, sluttiest, trashiest women around. They spread ‘em and didn’t have an ounce of modesty.

Wouldn’t that be considered Bullying? I thought the left was against bullying I see them in so many Public service ads and all.

Barbara is really old and delusional
and Trig will be here with a family who loves him long after Walters is gone. Bill Maher is a a number one a hole and he like Barbara is no spring chicken his days are numbered.

Trig is a beautiful little boy who has his whole life ahead of us, being raised by wonderful parents who love him. What some people just don’t get is that its not the word “Retard” that upset Sarah Palin, its the fact that it came out of the mouth of a man(If I can even call him that, I prefer to call him a scum sucking pig) who despises the Palin family and has trashed them since day 1..how many people have ever tried looking up their own name online..google, or bing..that is something that Trig will never be able to do, someone here should try it, type in Trig Palin and see what pops up, the most disgusting, vile language you can ever imagine, now imagine being Trig Palin, not understanding why so much hate has been perpetrated against him
Sarah Palin is a mother first, she is protecting her child..when a child is being bullied the motherly instinct kicks in..if Sarah can’t even protect her own child against this vile garbage whats the point of anything anymore

“I don´t think “

She should have stopped right there. It would have been one of the very few times she ever spoke the truth

“She’s just revealing her senility.”

That’s not senility. It is a deep hatred that lefties have for anyone who disagrees with their warped views. Nothing is off limits to these hateful people. They would have no problem whatsoever with death camps as did the Nazis. We’re not dealing with normal human beings here, and it is time we realize it

It is hard to imagine a scenario where Barbara Walters defends a conservative who called Obama’s child retarded.

From what I’ve seen of Mr. Maher, he lacks the inhibitions that most of us have by age 7 or 8. He says whatever comes into his head, as though he is perpetually drunk.

You are assuming he's saying these kinds of things stone cold sober? That assumption is, as they say, not necessarily valid...

Barbara Walters is a fifth-column media whore, who would copulate with Mr. Ed, if she could get a good story out of it. The perverted bitch has no moral code except treasonous depravity and stealing oxygen.
