Now UNEMPLOYED jerk of the year, Dan Grilo, sparked outrage Tuesday night when during a three-minute standing ovation for Carryn Owens, widow of U.S. Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens at the Joint Session of the United States Congress, Grilo mocked the widow in a nasty tweet.
The blowback was immediate and harsh enough that Grilo walked back his tweet, deleting the tweet and his twitter account.
