Dan Grilo Proves Democrats Hate The Military And Their Families
Ex-Hillary volunteer tweets insult about Navy SEAL widow and immediately regrets it
WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 28: Widow of Fallen Navy Seal, Senior Chief William Owens, Carryn Owens, and Ivanka Trump attend a joint session of the U.S. Congress with U.S. President Donald Trump on February 28, 2017 in the House chamber of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC. Trump's first address to Congress focused on national security, tax and regulatory reform, the economy, and healthcare. (Photo by Alex Wong/Getty Images)
While Grilo deleted the tweet soon after the public outcry, many had a screenshot of the offending message, which read, “Sorry, Owens’ wife, you’re not helping yourself or your husband’s memory by standing there and clapping like an idiot. Trump just used you.”
It was in response to a tweet that he linked, which read, “Owens’ wife is crying, and she looks up at the ceiling, overwhelmed, as Congress gives her, long, sustained applause.”
The tweet was even re-posted by Donald Trump Jr., as an example of the hatred from the left. “Hatred from the other side,” he remarked. “I would think this is beyond what a human is capable of saying to someone, but it’s not!”
Grilo has since deactivated his account, but he is learning the consequences of thoughtlessly tweeting insults on social media. Trump supporters began bombarding his employer, Chicago-based Liberty Advisor Group. They posted a statement saying they had relieved Grilo of his duties.
Last night during President Trump’s speech, a Liberty Advisor Group employee sent out an offensive and inappropriate tweet regarding the Gold Star family that was being rightly honored before Congress and the Nation. The personal views of this individual do not represent Liberty and we vigorously disavow them.
The company said the tweet was inconsistent with their values of respecting members of the military.
Regardless of whether the comments in the tweet were intended to cause the hurt and anger that they ultimately generated, they were unacceptable to us, and the individual who issued the tweet is no longer affiliated with Liberty.
