Liberals are so unhinged and filled with hate that they can’t even allow a social media hashtag meant to memorialize a dead baseball player go by without coopting it into an attack on Donald Trump.
Last week Los Angeles Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs suddenly passed away and the team launched a social media hashtag in memory of their teammate. Skaggs wore jersey number 45, so the team and fans began posting “#RIP45” in memory of their player.

“Skaggs, 27, was found unresponsive in his Texas hotel room, stunning the Major League Baseball community and leading to the postponement of Monday’s game between the Angels and Rangers,” Fox News reported.
The cause of death has still not been revealed, but the police have already said no foul play was suspected.
But hate-filled left-wingers once again devolved into their mode of spittle-specked hatred and coopted the hashtag using it to wish for the death of Donald Trump, who is the 45th president.
Was it so bad that fans of the young player could expect that their solemn act of commemoration could be left unsullied by hateful leftists?
Apparently it was too much to expect because liberals once again proved that they destroy everything they touch.
Some understood that a funeral memorial was not the time to turn political:
People on Twitter disgust me. The hashtag #RIP45 is supposed to pay respect to Tyler Skaggs who passed way too soon. Instead, people are using it as a joke to say they wish it meant Donald Trump had died. Take your politics out of this, it has no place here and it’s sickening.

If you are using the #RIP45 for political purposes, you are a garbage human.
That hashtag is meant to celebrate the life of a 27 year old man who died, leaving behind a young wife and a community. His friends and family don’t need your vitriol today. Grow the hell up.

But liberals don’t care about your loved ones:
