Former SC GOP Exec Director Fires Off Racially-Charged Tweets During The Super Bowl *Graphic

And the GOP wonders why they lost?

 

During last night’s Super Bowl, former South Carolina GOP executive director and current legal correspondent for Fox’s Good Day Columbia Todd Kincannon sent out a flurry of racially-charged tweets, stirring controversy among social media users.

Kincannon’s tweets largely involved “jokes” about Trayvon Martin, dick-sucking, Hurricane Katrina, and black people.

 

To wit:

After receiving much criticism for his Trayvon Martin remark, Kincannon dug in deeper, thrice more invoking the shooting victim's name as a punchline:

And, given the mid-game blackout, Kincannon took the opportunity to make a "joke" about the arena and its use as shelter for the "poors" among New Orleans' majority black population during Hurricane Katrina:

The tweets sent off a flurry of negative responses, which was met with the legal analyst doubling down on his remarks, laughing off criticism, and re-tweeting dozens of supportive responses.

 He went on to say this:@ ToddKincannon @DAWNCATHERINE I appreciate you! I agree that Trayvon Martin was a dangerous thug who needed to be put down like a rabid dog.

LMAO do you people know what trolls are? Or do you wanna just run with this so you can be mad?....Also....


UPDATE: Originally this post mistakenly referred to Kincannon as a “current legal analyst for Fox’s Good Day Columbia.” However, WACH’s news director informs us that he does not work with the network in any official capacity. We have corrected the mistake.

And because a corrected update was made that he is not currently with the network in any official capacity, that makes his tweets okay in your world?

Gee, I wonder who the troll really is here?
