Left and Right Unite to Mock Fox’s Todd Starnes for Baltimore Comments

As we just reported this morning, the Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced that an investigation found the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray to be a homicide. Warrants have been filed for the arrest of six Baltimore City police officers involved in the incident earlier this month, in which Gray suffered a spinal injury while in custody, later passing away. Some of the charges to be filed include second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault.

Now if you had to take one guess which Fox News pundit would react in the ugliest fashion to the news, you’d probably have thought Todd Starnes. And you would be correct, because, well, that’s just his thing.

The notoriously incendiary conservative commentator took to Twitter during Mosby’s remarks to suggest the attorney simply has it out for Baltimore police:

Normally when Starnes has one of his authoritarian hissy-fits, the left goes apoplectic while much of the right prefers to ignore him (some, of course, support him). But this time, the mockery of his comments came equally from both sides of the proverbial aisle.
