As Twitchy reported, shots rang out this morning at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Students and staff are being evacuated, and there are reports of injuries and fatalities. While most Twitterers are praying for the victims and for everyone’s safety, one ghoul just couldn’t resist turning this horrible event into a showcase for his political jackassery.

Execrable David “No Labels” Frum immediately seized the opportunity to use the shooting to score a few cheap laughs. All he accomplished was making a colossal idiot of himself. Twitterers were rightly disgusted:

I’m glad @davidfrum‘s first reaction to an injured child is an attempt (a poor one at that) to score political points.

BTW- @davidfrum, the idea is for adults to be able to defend children. It’s an age old human concept, you might want to look into it.

— DrewM (@DrewMTips) December 14, 2012

Not cool, Mr. Frum. MT @davidfrum: Shooting at CT elementary school. Obviously, we need to lower the age limit for concealed carry…

— Snowed In (@snowed_in) December 14, 2012

Douche. RT @davidfrum: Shootng at CT elem school. Obviously, we need 2 lowr the agelimit for conceald carry so toddlrs can defend themselvs.

— Mary Beth House (@mbhouse) December 14, 2012

@davidfrum is out as the early leader in the ‘tweet like a idiot’ sweepstakes on the CT shooting. Must need more MSDNC face-time.

Idiot MT @davidfrumShooting at CT elem school. Obviously, we need to lower age limit for concealed carry so toddlers can defend themselves.

— Doug Wagner (@DougWagner) December 14, 2012

Wow, what a disgusting and ridiculous douche @davidfrum is. “Oh, a shooting! GOTTA BE FIRST TO MAKE AN INSENSITIVE GUN LAW COMMENT!”

— Adam (@GPIA7R) December 14, 2012

@davidfrum What flows through your veins? Clearly nothing warm. #Newtown

— Kim(@KonservativeKim) December 14, 2012

@davidfrum The age old tradition is for Adults to protect children, might seem foreign. Does lack of labels requires lack of brains ?

— Samuel Amaral (@SPambas) December 14, 2012

@davidfrumAs usual people like you never let a tragedy go to waste to make points, Stalin would proud of you

— Shaun Cronin (@frogandpelican) December 14, 2012

No, @davidfrum, clearly the solution isn’t to let faculty carry to defend the kids from school shooters. It’s to arm the children.

— Sunny (@sunnyright) December 14, 2012

Spoiler alert, @davidfrum: Crazy and brutal people out to commit capital murder tend not to care about your gun control law.

— Sunny (@sunnyright) December 14, 2012

@davidfrum Wow nothing like making this horrible thing political quickly

— kc (@kswatchman) December 14, 2012

@davidfrum Strike while the bodies are still warm? You’re reprehensible.

@davidfrum Jesus Christ man, can you wait a few hours before being such a scum bag?

— Ben(@BenK84) December 14, 2012

Evidently not. What a loathsome creature.

Update:

Media Matters senior fellow of jerkitude Eric Boehlert is also weighing in with his trademark ghoulishness:

2 shooters; 1 dead; #rampagenation RT @yahoonews DEVELOPING: Possible school shooting reported in Newtown, Conn.: yhoo.it/TYRWNn

— Eric Boehlert (@EricBoehlert) December 14, 2012

“masked gunman”; MT @lizdahlemnbcct Kids tell me they heard multiple gun shots.Masked gunman came to school, according to parent.

— Eric Boehlert (@EricBoehlert) December 14, 2012

What’s with the scare quotes, Eric?

He also retweeted this little pearl of wisdom:

If we had as many plane crashes as we have mass shootings, there’d be a moratorium on planes.

— Tina Dupuy (@TinaDupuy) December 14, 2012

Vile.

But not to be outdone, hacktastic gun control zealot Piers Morgan oh-so-tastefully inserted himself into the narrative:

Another day, another horrific shooting – this time at an elementary school in Connecticut. America’s gun culture has to change.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Look at this appalling photo and tell me America doesn’t need tougher gun control: bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-…

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

What America needs is to keep our children safe, you fool.

Last 2yrs: movie theatres, shopping malls, temples, a congresswoman, now an elementary school – when will America deal with its gun madness?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Any moment now, a gun nut will tweet me saying ‘If all the kids in that school had been armed, the shooters would have been stopped…’

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Witness on CNN just said ‘at least 100 rounds’ were fired in school shooting. Unbelievable. #PrayForTheChildren

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Yes. Pray for the children, Piers. Quit politicizing every single tragedy in order to prop yourself up.

Why does any civilian in America need a weapon that can fire 100 rounds of ammunition at rapid speed? Give me ONE good reason?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Don’t just mourn these poor dead children America – get angry and do something to stop these senseless shootings happening.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

White House spokesman Jay Carney’s right – today’s not the day to debate gun control. YESTERDAY was the day to debate it.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

This is America’s Dunblane. We banned handguns in Britain after that appalling tragedy. What will the U.S. do? Inaction not an option.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

This is now President Obama’s biggest test – will he have the courage to stand up to the American gun lobby?

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

#GunControl

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

No more weasly words of ‘comfort’ Mr President. This is the latest, and worst, gun outrage on your watch. Time to act. #GunControl

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

I don’t give a damn about gun lobby wanting ‘dignified silence’ re gun control debate – tonight, we’ll debate it. CNN 9pmET. #PrayForNewton

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

I want justice for these children, justice for their parents. Don’t stand for this madness any more, America. Time to act. #GunControlNow

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Tweet me during the live show tonight – share in the debate, have a voice, don’t be silenced by the pro-gun lobby.CNN 9pm/ET. #Newton

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Only way forward for America is a national gun policy, same (much tougher) laws for everyone. No assault weapons for civilians, period.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

I’d ban ALL guns for convicted criminals and ANYONE with ANY mental health history whatsoever.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

In fact, I’d ban all guns for anyone under 25. And make extensive social media checks compulsory for all applicants. KNOW WHO THEY ARE.

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

In short, make it bloody difficult for more 20-something loons to commit gun outrages in movie theaters, malls and schools. #GunControlNow

— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) December 14, 2012

Unbelievable. Frum and Boehlert are certainly in illustrious company.

Update:

Like a rabid vulture, Michael Moore has swooped in to pick at the tragedy.

Enough.

Update:

More lefty celebrities are crawling out from under their rocks to pitch in with the ghoulish politicizing. Sickening.

‘Thinking’ man David Frum doubles down on the douchebaggery over Newtown tragedy
