Remember that ThinkProgress reporter who totally beclowned herself trying to nail Trump on Gitmo? Elham Khatami couldn’t resist pointing out that while Trump suggested sending terrorist Sayfullo Saipov to Gitmo for perpetrating this week’s deadly attack in New York, he didn’t call for the same punishment for Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock. Tweeters helpfully pointed out to Khatami that Paddock is different because he’s, well, dead.
Khatami deleted her tweet. A relatively simple, if not effective, move. Unfortunately, things were a little more complicated over at GQ:

Asked, and answered:
If you guys just tried to be objective, this shit wouldn't happen nearly as often.
