Also fucked up is a freelance writer by the name of David Leavitt who thought a potential terrorist attack was a great time to test his material on Twitter. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?

The Hannity crowd has also kicked their already nutzo conspiracy theory into an even higher gear by suggesting that the Manchester bombing was designed to distract our attention away from the Seth Rich fake news. Unbelievable.
