It was controversial enough that Lucian B. Wintrich received White House press credentials. He works for Jim Hoft, a.k.a. The Gateway Pundit, purveyor of all kinds of fake news, conspiracies, and overall Trumpophilia.
I won’t even link to that site.
Now Wintrich crossed a line of good taste into real offense.
Oh, right, you were the guy that posted this: pic.twitter.com/oSWwmIPNLo

Wintrich took the tweet down, but stood by “it being funny.”
Yes, sent to me by my friend in the Marines -and I stand by it being funny. Taken down due to requests.

Objectively: it’s not funny. It’s not even close to funny. It’s not even in the universe of “too soon?” This is in the same category of idiots who call themselves “9/11 truthers,” who believe that some Bush/Zionist/Government conspiracy was behind the 9/11 attacks. It’s disgusting.
Lucian Wintrich is spawn of the same Millennial stew that wrought Tomi Lahren and Milo Yiannopoulos. They are self-promoting, hare-brained, fabulous divas. He has no business sitting in the White House press briefing room.
Sean Spicer has more class in his Navy regulation socks than Wintrich has in his whole portfolio of faux-cool. In fact, Spicer should walk up and slap Wintrich in the face when they next meet.
Wintrich is an embarrassment to the White House press corps and need to go.
