As families and schoolchildren hunkered down in storm shelters to avoid a massive tornado today near Oklahoma City, a liberal “comedian” found time to use the disaster to attack conservatives.

The subtext of a tweet from “Daily Show” co-creator Lizz Winstead was clearly meant to insult the pro-life and family values people who live in the state of Oklahoma, one of the most Republican-oriented states in the nation.

At a time when “PrayforOklahoma is the highest trending topic on Twitter, conservatives noted Winstead’s lack of class.

This is the same Winstead who attacked Michele Bachmann on abortion and raises funds for Planned Parenthood.

UPDATE: Winstead tweeted an apology at approximately 7:00 p.m. ET.
