Trump Supporter Brings Out Best In Liberal Comedian

What began as an argument quickly turned into a touching moment of learning and understanding when two opposing sides managed to see past their differences.

It all began when Trump supporter Michael Beatty commented on a tweet posted by actor Patton Oswalt.

Oswalt had just tweeted another criticism of President Trump when Beatty retorted, “I just realized why I was so happy you died in ‘Blade Trinity’!”

The conversation started to degrade as the two took additional Twitter jabs at one another. 

But then something amazing happened. 

While combing Beatty’s profile (probably for ammunition) Oswalt discovered that not only was Beatty a Vietnam veteran, but that he was also suffering from recent and severe medical issues.

Probably preferring not to look like a jerk, Oswald then made this generous declaration: “Aw, man. This dude just attacked me on Twitter and I joked back but then I looked at his timeline and he’s in a LOT of trouble health-wise. I’d be pissed off too. He’s been dealt some s**tty cards — let’s deal him some good ones. Click and donate — just like I’m about to.”

Since then Beatty’s GoFundMe page has raised over $31,000, much higher than it’s $5,000 goal. 

Beatty thanked Oswalt, admitting that he had “humbled me to the point where I can barely compose my words.”

Here’s hoping to more interactions that led to understanding and support from political opposites.

    It is damn disgusting the way this country is going.
    When I was young, I thought this country was great; but, as I stated getting older, I realized the the this country was going down the tubes! I’m 70 yrs. old and can see how the Democratic party is tearing this United States of America apart.

      Kay….I should be insulted at your comments, but lets take a look at what is happening…

      DEMS: Yes…many, many potential socialists have discovered that the doors to socialism are opened on purpose for “closet socialists” to come out of the darkness, i.e., both Dems and Republicans. YOU and I ignored it… I rationalize that every party has some bad apples…why even the Republicans.
      REPUBLICANS: What the heck…the similarities need not be mentioned, they are the same as above…

      Frankly, our OBAMA was told to do this very thing…to open the doors to socialism…then confiscate the Media to participate just like historical propagandist did, making it One-Sided!

      Both you and I stuck our heads in the sand…we FORGOT our elected jobs were to “Defend our Constitution”…NOT our party…

      Basically, our country itself, if it could talk, would ask: “Where were you Americans when I needed you?”

      But NO…we were greedy, selfish, and mentally LAZY…we drew a line in the sand and on both sides we put our mutual parties facing each other…

      STUPID is what STUPID does…

      …we played right into the hands of socialism…

      Well, you are 70 years, I am 87 years…and many out there are wet behind the ears…but I’ll make a bargain with you…I WILL DEFEND (openly) our CONSTITUTION…and you do the same…and start bring pour men and women, our citizens, BACK to AMERICA…our first priority…OK???

    It would be so great if the party winning the election and the party loosing it would work together to make our country great and quit fighting like a bunch of spoiled people fighting for candy. Really tired of all of the partys fightingall the time and destroying confidence in either one.

      Amen. Such immature childish behavior on both sides, mainly the dems.
      Many are so afraid of losing their “cash cows” and inflated income that seems to be what it’s all about and the attitude spills out to the constituents and public even though they(the public) don’t even know what they are protesting, it gets so deluded by the time it reaches them. They all just hate and protest for the sake of something to do. get’s all of their inhibitions out that way. Our President is trying to work for the people and many of ‘the people’ are not making it easy for him. He has to be tough as nails. Most would have folded by now.

    What is really sad is a lot of us whether we are Trump supporters or not would more than likely be friends if we ever met. While many Dem supporters or Trump haters text things that really piss us off its mostly the way the media spins the stories that sets everyone off and everyone reacts to what people text. Blame it on Trump or Dems both do stupid things. But this is the most divided Ive seen people in a long time. I am sure if we were not talking politics most of us would get along.
