Liz Harrington, who serves as a spokesperson for Donald Trump, sparked a social media outrage on Tuesday she tweeted a “disgusting” statement from Trump in which the former president insults former Secretary of State Colin Powell, who died Monday of C0VID-19 complications.
Powell, a decorated Vietnam veteran who served in various diplomatic, military, and national security roles under four presidents, died Monday, his family announced on a Facebook post. he was 84.
The statement posted by Harrington was riddled with insults against Powell, who twice endorsed Democratic candidates for president. Trump called Powell a “classic RINO (Republican in name only)” who “made big mistakes on Iraq” and was always “first to attack other Republicans.”
As expected, Twitter users shot back at the former president. But they also slammed Harrington for amplifying his hateful comments.

"He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!" – President Donald J. Trump

Ms. Harrington, with all due respect, is this really what you want out of life? To thanklessly serve a bitter old man as a paid stenographer for his cruel remarks and countless grievances?

Does it ever bother you that your job is tweeting bullshit from an obese reality TV gameshow host likely suffering from untreated syphilis?

What a disgusting pig.

Do you have any shame, Liz? A shred of decency? A hint of humanity?
You don’t have to do this, you know.

We're all looking forward to seeing Trump's obituary.

And this is why I’ll never feel bad for the joy I’ll feel when I read his obit.

And you thought it was a good idea to tweet his statement? This shows you have no respect or morality either. Because anyone with an ounce of decency would have told him this inappropriate. And he wonders why his Twitter account is permanently banned. And actually you have no

I can’t believe you tweet this stuff for him and actually feel good about yourself.

Aren’t you embarrassed to retweet someone who is so obviously stuck at a 12 year-old’s emotional level? I don’t follow you because I have a brain, but I’m assuming by what I accidentally see that you’re stuck there, too.

This might be the lowest moment of your life, Liz.

Imagine posting this garbage and doing so with pride.
It's hard to imagine that anyone can find even a single quality of this man that would be even remotely admirable.

Liz, what the actual hell is wrong with you?

Repugnant as always Liz, well done.

Your account should be shut down for allowing this train wreck of a human being to tweet a statement. He isn't worthy enough to speak on General Powell's death. Mocking the dead will bring KARMA to his door.

Happy to see you're still debasing yourself. Please pass along to Trump the entire world will be joyous when he meets his end. This is disgusting.

You’ve been reported for trying to evade the ban of the 🍊🤡.
That you would even repeat this swill is despicable.

Trump’s entire life is blocking every document and fact of his existence. From his HS Grades to his WH Docs, dude does not want the truth spoken about him ever. He’s a criminal and always has been. Hence the NDA’s.

You’re really gross for sharing this
