It took no time at all for the ugliness to begin flowing once the death of Nancy Reagan was announced.
Here’s a small sample, but don’t worry: their Twitter accounts are all safe since they aren’t conservatives.
Drink are on me to the 1st gay man to kick 94 year old Nancy Reagan in the cunt. For World AIDS Day. She knows what she did, and didn't, do.

It’s worth remembering that President Barack Obama helped set the tone shortly after he was elected in 2008. A notable number of the hate Tweets come from black Americans. As CNN reported:
When a reporter asked Obama if he had spoken with any ex-presidents since his election on Tuesday, he responded that he had spoken to all former presidents “that are living.”
“I didn’t want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances,” he said.
The President later apologized.
