Schadenfreude
Dear Twitter: FWIW, this is how you spell “democracy”: EMPATHY

What are you talking about? Not a single example you cite here is “schadenfreude,” or even, really, a lack of empathy for Scalise. This isn’t cheering for the shooting, it’s reaction to your incredibly clueless, tin-eared tweet. Period. By the way, “we are all Republicans today” isn’t “empathy,” either. It’s just inanity. If you had decried the shooting and wished Scalise well, nobody would have reacted.
