Author’s Take

Y’all need Jesus. Anyone making light of the situation to score political points should pause and reflect on their values. Baldwin’s politics and the oft-time repugnant way in which he displays them is absolutely no reason to troll or criticize him over the death of another person.

This incident is a prime example of how politics has warped our culture. A woman died in what was almost certain to have been an accident and people of prominence in one political tribe used it as an opportunity to dunk on someone from the opposite political tribe. Those trolling weren’t random unknown citizens. It came from members of Congress, former ambassadors, and candidates for office. This is a tragedy and their attitude toward it is absolutely disgraceful.
