NeverTrumper king Bill Kristol isn’t someone who crosses my radar very often, as you can imagine.
But today he didn’t just cross my radar but also crossed a line, one that Twitter was quick to torch him for doing.
Here’s the tweet attack he made at Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney (h/t: Twitchy):
Rudy plays a tough guy now, on Twitter. But he didn’t have the guts to take on Hillary in 2000 for the New York Senate seat. When that race got tough, @RudyGiuliani got going. As bullies do when confronted by a stronger person. https://t.co/JWgKhuCDmE

That may not seem all that bad to you at first glance, but here’s the problem:
Well…he was diagnosed with prostate cancer during the race.
So this is not your best work. https://t.co/KXhP9p3Ytg

And believe me, Kristol knows this very well. Politics is what he does.
Others on Twitter were quick to pile on. The list is forever long, but here’s some of the more potent ones:
He had cancer, you moron. https://t.co/zq2P7CWNrQ

As a cancer victim.. you should be ashamed of yourself.. Cancer and it’s treatment is extremely hard on a body .. I pray you never have to experience what we experience #cancer https://t.co/xcbJ7uPtj2

Looked on Kristol’s timeline for an apology, or even acknowledgement that @rudyGiulani successfully beat the cancer beast in 2000.
None exists. For shame, Bill Kristol. For shame. https://t.co/703AZuGWio

I’m sure his cancer diagnosis in May of 2000 had absolutely nothing to do with it. Every time you think Bill Kristol has hit the bottom he just keeps digging. https://t.co/LszCuEocjG

Even after hours and hours of all of this, his tweet is still up. He just doesn’t care anymore, clearly.
