Former American astronaut, Mark Kelly, called out Sarah Palin after she tweeted about the “foreign fiasco” and “bomb[ing] Obamacare.”
.@SarahPalinUSA mixing violence & political discourse can have traumatic consequences. Our leaders need to elevate the public conversation

Kelly is husband to the former Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, an author and advocate of gun control. In January of 2011, Giffords was the victim of a shooting near Tucson where she was shot in the head. She was critically injured, but later recovered some of her ability to walk, speak, read and write.
Palin was heavily criticized after Giffords’ shooting, having earlier released a map featuring 20 House Democrats she wanted to see unseated, using crosshairs images to show their districts.
