Pink Learns The Hard Way Not To Show Empathy For Donald Trump

It started out innocently enough. The internationally renowned pop star, Pink, wanted to project light and love into a world filled with a darkness that can be directly traced back to President Donald Trump.

And then there was this master-tweet:

This isn’t kindergarten, Pink — it’s Twitter.
