Re: Pamela Carlan and her comments....
Hatred is ugly no matter where it comes from. The comments on the Obama girls obviously were from racists and emanated from individuals who felt safe behind a screen to make them. The motivation of Chelsea comments more in line with hatred for the Clinton's but still from individuals who felt brave in the anonym ity of posting their thoughts in response to something they read or felt. The reach of their comments limited and not broadcast to the world in general. Melania keeps Baron out of the limelight and is pretty much a private person herself. The difference between those hurtful comments and this recent reference in my mind is that it was said in the context of an impeachment hearing that was being nationally televised. I have no idea why this person was there to begin with but she obviously was extremely biased. Whether Baron is autistic or not is up for debate but if he is, that makes bringing his name in to the fray is even more despicable.
