Call it part of that "new tone" we've heard so much about. Upon learning that former First Lady Barbara Bush was hospitalized in Houston, Texas, for a respiratory-related illness, liberals on Twitter responded with vile tweets wishing she would die, Twitchy reported Thursday.
Most wished the wife of former President George Bush well, but some, Twitchy said, resolved "to be even more cretinous."
"Barbara Bush has been hospitalized. In other news: that old c**t is apparently still alive," one person said.
"She finna (sic) die?" another person asked.
"Bye, b***h," added "Carla."
"New year, same sickening depravity from hate-filled cretins," the Twitchy staff added.
Twitchy posted other tweets, most filled with profane death wishes.
In 2008, the Huffington Post said, the 88-year-old former first lady was hospitalized with an ulcer and received an aortic valve replacement in 2009.
Late Tuesday, the Office of former President George H. W. Bush issued the following statement:
"Former First Lady Barbara Bush was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston’s Texas Medical Center yesterday for treatment on a respiratory related issue. She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care. Updates will be issued when warranted."
Hate-filled messages and death wishes from the left seem to be the norm in matters regarding the Bush family.
After former President George H. W. Bush joined Twitter and issued his first tweet in December, liberal hatemongers responded with profane death wishes.
Last June, liberals also responded to news that a plane carrying former President George W. Bush was diverted by expressing disappointment the plane didn't crash, killing the 43rd president.
