A Cleveland, OH man is apparently the first liberal idiot to be charged with making threats against Donald Trump and it looks like the Secret Service are going to make his miserable life more miserable.
The idiot put up some Twitter posts just before major news outlets declared Trump the winner.
Diplomacy. F—ing fools. I hate you all. I want to bomb every one of your voting booths and your general areas.”
“My life goal is to assassinate Trump. Don’t care if I serve infinite sentences. That man deserves to decease existing.”
He’s been interviewed by the U.S. Secret Service and he admitted to the threats and apologized. He’s been charged with making a threat to the successor to the presidency. He’s already had one appearance before a judge and is scheduled for a detention hearing.
He was in his room watching the election returns when he Tweeted the threats. He had apparently been out drinking earlier in the evening with his father and a friend and was overcome by the election results. He said he was frustrated just thinking about how President-elect Trump’s policies could affect his job. I wonder what his job is?
He deleted the tweets the next morning and insisted he is not a violent person, but rather is just antisocial and introverted.
The judge wasn’t impressed, and he faces a federal grand jury and is being held on a $20,000 unsecured bond. His Twitter account has been deleted but the Secret Service has a copy of the tweets.
The Tweeter is facing five years in prison if he’s convicted of making threats against the president-elect. There’s no word from his attorney as to whether he will be using to Hillary Clinton “I didn’t have any bad intent” defense.
