Boy, actor Tom Arnold is on a roll and even more unhinged than usual. And that’s saying something. Yesterday, he made it clear on Twitter how disappointed he is that the apartments of President Trump’s eldest sons haven’t been burglarized after the president tweeted about the burglary of Rep. Elijah Cummings’ (D-MD) Baltimore home. Which, by the way, is a rental and was robbed a day before Trump’s initial comments on Cummings.
“Don Jr’s NYC apartment has not been robbed yet! Eric Trump’s either! Really bad news!!” Tom Arnold sneered. He has always hated Trump and his family. His comment came in response to the president’s tweet earlier Friday about Cummings house being robbed. “Really bad news! The Baltimore house of Elijah Cummings was robbed. Too bad!” the president wrote. Over the weekend, President Trump slammed the House Oversight Committee chair as a “brutal bully” for his conduct towards U.S. Border Patrol agents and called Baltimore a “rodent-infested mess.” Which it is.
Cummings made a statement that confirmed that the robber was scared off. He said that an individual “attempted to gain entry into my residence at approximately 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, July 27.” I understand that nothing, in reality, was stolen.
“According to the report, on the morning of July 27, an unknown black male in his early 40s, wearing a black fitted hat with a red upside-down U shape on the front, entered Cummings’ property through the front door at around 3:40 a.m. The three-floor residential apartment building has a foyer entrance with two exterior doors, the first of which leads into the foyer and is kept open and unlocked. The second door is inside the foyer and separates it from the first floor of the building and is locked, but has no alarm. There is another door inside the hallway of the first floor, which separates the hallway from the apartment residence and is equipped with an alarm.
“Cummings and his wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, occupy the first two floors of the building. They were notified through a smartphone application when the security system went off, the report stated. The congressman confronted the intruder, described as 5’8” and around 170 pounds, who then fled the scene in the 2000 block of Madison on a dark-colored bicycle.
“I scared the intruder away by yelling before the person gained entry into the residential portion of the house,” Cummings said in an emailed statement. “I thank the Baltimore Police Department for their response and ask that all further inquiries be directed to them.”’

Donald Trump Jr. slammed Arnold on Twitter for his vicious and crude comments” “No, we just get daily death threats and exploding packages of white powder sent to our homes you piece of garbage.” Appropriate and well-deserved.
“25-year-old Daniel Frisiello of Massachusetts pleaded guilty in a Boston federal court in October 2018 to sending white powder-laced packages to Donald Jr. and Eric Trump.
“The letter also included an ominous note for the president’s son, which read “You are an awful, awful person. I am surprised that your father lets you speak on TV. You the family idiot, Eric, looks smart.”
“This is the reason why people hate you, so you are getting what you deserve,” it added.

“Trump Jr.’s ex-wife, Vanessa, opened the letter and was later rushed to a hospital out of caution. NYPD officials confirmed the white powder substance was cornstarch.
“The actor’s tweet comes days after saying he would be “lucky” if he and far-left “Squad” member Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) “[fell] in love.”
“She’s beautiful, smart & brave. If I’m lucky we’ll fall in love,” Arnold wrote of Omar on Twitter, before defending of the freshman congresswoman for retweeting the actor’s remarks justifying Sen. Rand Paul’s (R-KY) neighbor’s assault against the senator last year.
“Rand Paul is a horrible neighbor a terrible Senator & worse human. Donald Trump has retweeted Nazi’s. You’ve never called out Donald Trump. Stop bullying tiny brown women coward. Time to call out big fat white guys,” the actor said.”

Tom Arnold is seriously in need of a mental health intervention. This is just twisted and sick. Arnold has a long history of anti-Trump activism, calling him “racist” and a “knucklehead,” among other things. In fact, he has called Trump and his family every foul name in the book and repeatedly calls for violence against the First Family. Perhaps the authorities should pay him a visit and get him some help.
It wouldn’t be his first visit from the Secret Service either. At the end of 2018, Arnold revealed that he received a visit from the Secret Service after challenging the president to a fight. Arnold was cooperative with the agents and explained that he understood the ramifications of his posts. And yet, he just can’t seem to shut it.

“I did see a crazy reaction to it from people,” Arnold admitted. “I get a lot of death threats. There’s a certain element — I don’t know if they’re bots — I just ignore it … But I also see how they take something and they blow it up like, ‘He is literally threatening to …’ And I find that absurd, but I can see how obviously if people are tweeting … they can call you guys and have you come over. That’s ridiculous, but I understand why you’re here.”
Arnold and many others in Hollywood take any and every opportunity to instigate harm against the Trumps and conservatives in general. They are given a pass and many times idolized for it. Free speech is one thing. Incitement to violence or murder is entirely something else. Arnold should be held to account for his threats just as all the radicals on the left should be.
