Story bemoaning Pervert Manning’s attempt to kill itself and happy it survived.
Fucking attention whore.
Just do it and spare us your pathetic theatrics.
If this isn’t the proof we need to ban these creatures from the military I do not know what is.
They’re mentally unbalanced and a drain on the health care system.
The U.S. Senate candidate — a former soldier and whistleblower — who is hoping to unseat a Maryland Democrat shared a jarring photo of what appeared to be her poised to jump from the ledge of an unidentified high-rise building.
The figure in the photo was wearing pink pajamas and had painted toenails. It’s unclear where the photo was taken.
“I’m sorry – I tried – I’m sorry I let you all down,” Manning wrote. “Im not really cut out for this world – I tried adapting to this world out here but I failed you – I couldn’t do this anymore – I can take people I don’t know hating me but not my own friends,” she added. “I tried and I’m sorry about my failure.”
The posts were flooded with well-wishes from Manning’s followers and the number to the suicide hotline.
After a half hour, the tweets vanished and were replaced with a brief message announcing that Manning was out of harm’s way.
“Chelsea is safe. She is on the phone with friends. Thanks everyone for your concern and please give her some space,” the message read.
Kelly Wright, a close friend of Manning who works with her senate bid, said Monday that Manning’s adjustment to public life after prison “has been extremely difficult.”
“I have seen first-hand and up close the violence inflicted on her by years of imprisonment, solitary confinement and torture,” Wright said in a statement. “This is made worse by the impossibly high expectations our society sets for public figures, especially on social media, where trans people in particular are routinely subject to mockery, criticism and abuse.”
She added that Manning now needs “space to heal.”
Manning, who now lives in North Bethesda, announced her bid to run against Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) in January.
The government whistleblower’s 35-year sentence was cut short by President Barack Obama before he left office in 2017.
While imprisoned, Manning came out as a transgender woman. The former Army intelligence analyst tried taking her own life at least twice while imprisoned at the Fort Leavenworth in Kansas, according to The New York Times.
