Actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, better known as the cruel and vengeful Negan on the series The Walking Dead, may have lost many of his fans. After last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, VA, Morgan decided to send a message to President Trump. His profanity-laced tweet, in defense of his children no less, left many wondering if Morgan knows anything about reality.

Speaking directly to the events of the day, Morgan appeared to be angry about having to explain racism to his seven-year old son. To deal with his anger, he decided to blame President Trump. And believe us when we tell you, the brutality of his tweet reminds of Negan’s infamous baseball bat.
“@realDonaldTrump F**K YOU. Seriously. F**k you for everything. Today? F**k you for making us have to explain racism to our children.”
Racism in America arrived on the scene long before President Trump. And what kind of example is he setting for his young, impressionable children using words like that aimed at the president of the United States? Is that how responsible adults, parents, talk to each other?
Twitter user, Laura, took issue with Morgan’s tweet and called him out for his lack of insight. “Because racism didn’t exist before Trump, right?” wrote Laura. “He’s to blame for everything that was happening way before he was elected. What a joke” However, Morgan wasn’t fazed by her response.

While he did agree, Morgan doubled-down in blaming President Trump for having to “explain Charlottesville” to his child. He also slammed the president for not condemning bigotry. “Very true. But should we have a need to explain Charlottesville in 2017 to 7-year-olds?” he responded. “Or a president that doesn’t condemn bigotry?”
Morgan’s response leads to us to several more questions. Like, who created the world where the events in Charlottesville happened? And did he miss the three statements from President Trump, where he did condemn violence and bigotry? Or, is he angry, because the president called-out everyone?
Given his final response to Laura, after she mentioned President Trump’s condemnation, we’ll go with the latter. “No. He hasn’t,” responded Morgan. “You need to see today’s news conference.”
The only difference is we, unlike him, were listening.
Perhaps Morgan should be more worried about the example he is setting for his children.
