Here‚Äôs a nice break from a full month‚Äôs worth of post-election meltdown news, or so we thought:
‚ÄĒ The Hill (@thehill) December 10, 2016
Bristol Palin and her husband Dakota Meyer broke the news to Entertainment Tonight Friday. The baby will be the couple‚Äôs second child; their daughter was born in December 2015. Tripp Palin, her son with ex-fianc√© Levi Johnson, is now 7.
On the plus side,¬†we‚Äôre 8 years beyond Andrew Sullivan‚Äôs public demand that¬†Sarah Palin provide¬†the American public documentation ‚ÄĒ ‚Äúthe amniocentesis results with Sarah Palin‚Äôs name on them, for example‚ÄĚ ‚ÄĒ to ‚Äúverify‚ÄĚ her¬†last pregnancy. That doesn‚Äôt mean a new Palin child doesn‚Äôt still have a triggering effect, though.
@thehill With all the money her mother made from speaking, you'd think she could afford to give Bristol a nickel to hold between her knees.

Yeah, a married couple having a child together?¬†A second child? There‚Äôs no excuse for that.

@thehill The woman who was paid to promote abstinence has 3rd child out of wedlock. Murican Family Values. Idiot.

@thehill dear God is anybody going to ever tell that girl anything about birth control? God knows who This one belongs to

@thehill Do we know who's the the father?

All of that was covered above, but it‚Äôs true, those ‚ÄúEntertainment Tonight‚ÄĚ reports can be difficult to follow sometimes. Most news outlets took a pass¬†on the item, but here‚Äôs a quick word from the Daily Beast‚Äôs¬†Olivia Nuzzi.
At this rate it would be less work for Bristol Palin to announce when she is not pregnant. https://t.co/kqAMNmeiF8

Certainly she‚Äôll keep that advice in mind and pursue more publicly acceptable family planning accordingly.
@Olivianuzzi Why the shade on Bristol Palin? I had three kids within 5 years and am not sure how to take your comment.

We‚Äôre pretty sure it wasn‚Äôt a compliment.

@Olivianuzzi 26 year old married woman with two kids is pregnant. Definitely a reason for ridicule, huh?

I was glum about Left's ability to oppose Trump but I see they can still snark about Bristol Palin's reproduction so it will all be ok

@Olivianuzzi Shaming a woman for their "choice". Having kids=not OK, abortion=hero. Got it. You feminists have a funny logic
