Tripp Palin calls his aunt a faggot on Bristol’s tv show. It’s dyke not faggot. At least teach your little homophobe the proper terminology!— Lisa Lampanelli (@LisaLampanelli) July 23, 2012
Yesterday, alleged media outlets galore were reporting that 3-year-old Tripp Palin called his aunt Willow the gay slur F-word on his mom’s new Lifetime series “Life’s a Tripp.” Here are just a few examples:

Immediately, the Left not only tried to politicize the words of a 3-year-old child, but also attacked the 3-year-old and his mother based on this false reporting. But, hey, they hear what they want to hear, as always. Facts shmacts! Truth doesn’t matter when there is a Palin to demonize, including a 3-year-old child.

This Twitter user tries to add some perspective.
But, wait! Tripp didn’t even use that F-word.
Bristol was forced to explain what her 3-year-old child said. Her 3-year-old child is being held to a higher standard than most leftist adult idols. From Dan Savage to Al Sharpton; calling people “pansy asses” and “punk f**ggots” is totally okay if a leftist hero does it.
Still, Bristol explained that little Tripp let slip the other F-word. Parents everywhere should understand that this happens from time to time.
From Bristol’s blog:
Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off) and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face. Tripp is always surrounded by adults – around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies. He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use. On national television or at home.
Not quite the demon child the Left is trying to make him out to be, huh? Bristol then made the point that instead of focusing on the “verbal slips of a 3-year-old,” let’s focus on real issues and on American self-reliance as highlighted in her #IBuiltThis campaign. Sane people everywhere will, Bristol.
Sane people, and those not easily led by the hateful leftist nose, are also calling out the media. Most “reports” of the “gay slur” have not been corrected.
I see only 1 of the media "reports" on Tripp Palin have been corrected. Thanks LSM for giving me more examples of why you can't be trusted!

First the media put words in Ann Romney’s mouth in order to try to demonize her. The Left also fell for that, and continue to push that lie. Now they are doing it to a 3-year-old child with the disgusting rationale that it’s totally okay, because they think his mom and his grandma are icky.
Lower than low. What say you, “real journalists?” Care to correct your vile false narrative record?
