“One thing you can't hide -

I enjoy Supergirl even though its Anti-Trump slant
is weaved continuously in the dialogue and storylines.
I believe creators are entitled to voice their beliefs in their stories.
The threads of family, love, and courage that interweave in those same stories
make the series still enjoyable for me.
I found the recent tongue-in-cheek furor over "Covfefe" amusing.
I mean after all, President Trump loves to tweet.
And if you live by the tweet, you die by the tweet.
That will teach him not to go back
and re-read his tweets for spelling errors, right?
The internet fuss about the misspelled word was a harmless tweek of his tweeting nose.
But Kathy Griffen posing with a fake bloody severed head of Trump was not harmless.
The silent statement was:
"I disagree with you so it is all right for me to wish harm for you."
Voltaire would disagree.
Kathy and the photographer, Tyler Shields, first defended it as "art."
Later, Kathy apologized for going too far but did not extend that apology to President Trump or his family.
Kathy has hurt her fellow liberals by her excessive bad taste by giving many in the far right ammunition to say:
"See! Look how intolerant and vile those liberals are!"
