Dinesh D’Souza Deletes Tweet Calling Obama ‘Grown-Up Trayvon’

Conservative commentator Dinesh D’Souza on Tuesday called President Barack Obama a “Grown-Up Trayvon” on his Twitter page, but he appeared to delete the tweet shortly after.

“I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!” he said, according to Politico.

In another tweet that was also taken down Tuesday afternoon, D’Souza brushed off critics who said he went too far.

“Feigned outrage on the left over me calling Obama ‘grown up Trayvon’ except that Obama likened himself to Trayvon!” he said.
