The Daily Beast reports:
J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy and Republican Senate candidate currently running to replace Rob Portman, thoroughly embarrassed himself on Twitter Friday morning when he used to tragic death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins to bootlick former President Donald Trump.
The implication was that America “needs” to hear Trump’s unvarnished thoughts about his comedy nemesis accidentally killing Hutchins—and wounding director Joel Souza—on the New Mexico set of his new movie Rust less than 24 hours earlier.

An innocent woman died but for this guy who calls himself ‘Christian’ in his Twitter biog, it’s all a joke. It’s all about Trump. But hey, the things desperate people do to try and get elected to the Senate… https://t.co/neVyLWY5Do

At what point is mainstream Ohio media — TV; major papers — going to start talking about how big a piece of shit this guy is? I know he’s trying to get a rise out of people because the GOP is now the edgelord party, but he’s a major candidate for Senate. https://t.co/7U0QZnw5ox

Every time someone in GOP politics tries to present themselves as the “reasonable, principled, reluctant” Trump supporter, they inevitably show their true colors eventually. What a callous, classless jerk. A woman died; it’s not a joke. https://t.co/fn52GQZ5aK

There was a horrible accident that resulted in one woman killed, one man injured, and other lives damaged if not destroyed forever.
