Like Wile E. Coyote, the president’s avatar is never killed. Just keeps coming back for more — 3.1 million times and counting.
Meanwhile, Rosie O’Donnell is taking right-wing grief for tweeting the link to the game.
Push Trump Off A Cliff Again https://t.co/YguB3aG8EP

“Many of O’Donnell’s followers seemed to enjoy the game, but many other users condemned the comic for plugging a website that could be interpreted as promoting violence toward the President — especially in light of fellow comic Kathy Griffin sharing a photo of a bloodied, beheaded Trump mannequin in May,” said the New York Daily News.
“The game … requires players to use a few simple controls to push a cartoonish version of the President off of a rocky overhang. Other versions include him walking into a volcano, falling into a New York City sinkhole and getting eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex.”
Creator Hook, via Twitter, noted how an Obama punching bag was being sold at Walmart.
Not sure I buy conservative outrage about my site considering you could buy a brusied and battered President Obama punching bag at Walmart. pic.twitter.com/4e63jJpM7V

Rosie O’Donnell is promoting a game where you kill Trump.
It would be a shame if someone made a game for @Rosie called “Feed the Pig…”
