When we think of Rob Lowe, we think of Chris Traeger, LITERALLY the most positive character to appear on television. What we pretty easily forget is that he’s kind of the worst. Particularly politically. Just a few months back, he was outraged by football players kneeling during the National Anthem to protest police continuously murdering black people without consequence. Now he’s annoyed by people protesting Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. Because the real victims of the ban are those inconvenienced at LAX. SAD.

He then started fighting with those who replied to him, most of whom deleted their tweets because the guy with 1.3 million followers called them out.
