Rosie O’Donnell Encourages Pushing Trump off of a Cliff?
Push Trump Off A Cliff – Game in Poor Taste or Good Fun?

It seems that Rosie O’Donnell can’t help herself here, Rosie and Trump have had a very long standing hate/hate type of relationship and generally enjoy things like trading insults, name calling and the like. This past weekend it would seem that she took to Twitter to share a link to the popular game, “Push Trump off A Cliff Again.”
The game was created by Justin Hook, a California-based app and game creator in what I am guessing was some form of light hearted protest to Trump becoming our President. It allows users to control a Trump figure, who can be thrown off a cliff, into a steaming volcano or down a New York City manhole as well as feed Trump to a hungry dinosaur.
While on the outside it seems like just a game and although I completely understand that people just loath Donald Trump and despise with a passion that he is now the President of the United States, I personally feel that the game and the encouragement to play it are both in rather disparaging poor taste.
I don’t much care for Trumps outlandish behavior at times or some of his choices for his administration, I would never suggest or encourage anyone to toss him off of a cliff. In a video game, in a letter, a drawing etc.
Here’s why, the game in and of itself encourages violence against an active US President and it could inspire an act of violence against Trump by a disturbed individual.
Many American’s feel a lot of Trump’s behavior is childish, foolish and un-president like. In fact a lot of the world finds most of what Trump says or does to be childish. Why on earth would someone take the time to stoop to that childish level and create a childish game aimed at a violent act that results in a sitting U.S. President’s death?
