The mainstream media completely embarrassed themselves over the weekend when they judged a group of high school students wearing MAGA hats without knowing all the facts first. Unsurprisingly, comedian Kathy Griffin led the charge against the high school kids, calling for the minors to be publicly shamed and exposed.
Breitbart reported that this controversy started when a brief clip went viral online that the media chose to say showed students from Covington Catholic High School harassing a Native American Vietnam War veteran named Nathan Phillips at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Friday. However, the full unedited version of the video clearly shows that it was the Native American who approached the students and beat his drum in their faces, not the other way around.

Despite this, the notoriously hateful Griffin chose to ignore the facts and risk these students’ lives by calling for them to be doxxed and publicly shamed.
“Ps. The reply from the school was pathetic and impotent. Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these f*****s wouldn’t dox you in a heartbeat, think again,” Griffin wrote on social media on Sunday.

Fortunately, people on Twitter weren’t having any of her nonsense.

No Kathy, you know nothing. You are so filled with hate & what you screamed out about the Covington kids was despicable & dangerous. They showed class & respect, two virtues you are completely void of. Shout out to Jake Tapper for stepping up.

Pretty sad to see leftists like @kathygriffin & @rezaaslan get outraged over a fake incident of racism, yet remain completely silent about the black guys who shouted actual racist slurs at those same Covington students. It's not racism they're against. It's white conservatives.

It should come as no surprise that Griffin decided to go after these kids as their pro-Trump hats undoubtedly triggered her liberal rage. Ever since she took part in a photoshoot in which she posed with Trump’s severed head, Griffin has let her Trump derangement syndrome completely consume her. While her social media pages were once devoted to comedy, they are now full of hate-filled rants against both the president and his supporters as well as whatever anti-Trump conspiracy Griffin is choosing to push at the moment.
Attacking Trump is one thing, but going after a group of high school students who have already been proven innocent of the crime the mainstream media believed they committed is a new low for Griffin. We can only hope that Griffin’s calls for a witch hunt against these boys does not result in any of them getting hurt.
