Republicans celebrating Father's Day in the era of separating migrant families, beware the wrath of liberals: Paul Ryan took to Twitter on Saturday to post a video called "How Becoming a Father Changed My Life," with a caption that read, "My life changed the day I became a father. Liza, Charlie, and Sam are my highest priority. Wishing all of the dads out there a happy early #FathersDay." John Legend, an open and frequent critic of the Trump administration, wasted little time in pounding on the outgoing House speaker, reports Fox News, tweeting, "Seriously, f--- you. Reunite the families at the border and we can talk about father's day." Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen earlier gave the ACLU a big gift in honor of President Trump's birthday. Meanwhile, Newsweek notes that Ivanka Trump is undeterred in posting photos of her own children despite intense criticism over her father's policies. (More Paul Ryan stories.)
