Sarah Palin rips Bill Maher over alleged remark insulting son with Down syndrome

by John Jalsevac from
Sarah Palin lost her cool on Twitter today after reports emerged that comedian Bill Maher had insulted her disabled son Trig during a routine this past weekend.
According to Ron Futrell, a former TV host who was present at the gig, Maher referred to Trig as a “retard” in the process of making a joke about him.
When Futrell, who himself has a special needs child, reportedly stood up to the comic in defense of Trig, he was ushered out of the show.
Palin took to Twitter today, calling Maher a “bully,” and saying that “on behalf of all kids whom you hatefully mock in order to make yourself feel big, I hope one flattens your lily white wimpy a#*.”
She also said that she would be in Maher’s “neck of the woods” this weekend. “Care to meet so I can tell you how I really feel?” she asked.
The frequently offensive, liberal host of HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher has a history of targeting Palin and her son with offensive remarks, on various occasions referring to Palin as a “c—t," a "twat," and a "bimbo."
On another occasion the comic reportedly repeatedly referred to Trig as “it” during a monologue questioning Palin’s qualifications to be vice president, before concluding, “Does anyone in that party understand the concept of pulling out?”
In a post on his blog, Futrell said he was “disgusted and a bit surprised” by Maher’s joke, but even more disgusted by the crowd’s laughter, which he said was “the most disturbing part of all this.”
Maher has in the past referred to himself as "consistently pro-death."

  1. We all boast about freedom of speech, until someone's freedom insult us. Children are not the only ones who are affected by insensitive words. I believe the greatest defense any of us can put up, is to be mindful of our own words. Let us each examine ourselves.
