November 10, 2016 (NewsBusters) — Election results got you down? Send money to America's largest abortion provider. You'll feel better – according to the liberal media.
Following Trump’s win in the 2016 presidential election, media figures from Vanity Fair to MTV took to Twitter to express their disgust. To combat the “hopelessness” and “helpless” feelings, they tweeted a solution: donate to abortion giant Planned Parenthood to “honor” Hillary Clinton.
To begin, Katey Rich, deputy editor of Vanity Fair, tweeted that she had two tasks to do following the election. She listed “donating to Planned Parenthood” as the first.
2 things I’m doing today:
1) Donating to Planned Parenthood: https://t.co/LOtMzUR6aY
2) Subscribing to a newspaper.
