With each passing day, the Obama-loving media stoop to new lows in attacking the presumptive Republican presidential nominee and his family.
On MSNBC’s The Last Word Monday, host Lawrence O’Donnell mocked Ann Romney for having the nerve to combat her multiple sclerosis by riding horses (video follows with transcript and commentary):
This is so disgusting it’s nauseating.
First off, what business is it of O’Donnell’s how Ann Romney chose to deal with her illness? If going for walks, going to the museum, watching television, or, heaven forbid, riding horses helped “regenerate her strength and renew [her] vigor,” isn’t that a good thing?
Why should that be the subject of scorn and derision, especially from a representative of a so-called “news network?” As for Romney’s taxes, it is safe to assume that their LLC purchases horses as an investment just as most people do. Income is derived from breeding and/or selling them. As such, expenses associated with their training and upkeep are deductible.
This has absolutely nothing to do with healthcare. But why should we expect an ignorant shill such as O’Donnell to understand that? Furthermore, who is O’Donnell to ridicule anyone for his or her wealth? According to Celebrity Net Worth, his estate is valued at $8 million.
That makes him just another rich liberal castigating Romney for his wealth. It never ends, does it?
