Assassination threats against Trump flood Twitter

NYP- The shock and anger over Donald Trump’s ascension to the White House has triggered a flood of calls on Twitter and other social media outlets for the president-elect to be assassinated — and authorities will investigate all threats deemed to be credible, The Post has learned.

Trump met Thursday with President Obama in the Oval Office, with the Republican businessman calling the hour-plus session a “great honor.” Obama said they had an “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, while urging all people to “now come together.”

But that message of inclusion was apparently lost in social media circles, particularly Twitter, where a simple search can reveal dozens and dozens of calls to gun down the next leader of the free world. Some posts called for both Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence to be assassinated, and there’s even an #AssassinateTrump hashtag.

“Trump chose the literal worst case scenario as VP so nobody would try to impeach or assassinate him,” one user posted on Twitter.

Another user wrote that the “only” remaining question after Tuesday’s historic and polarizing election is who will “assassinate” Trump, who will be inaugurated on Jan. 20. Some users even cited that date as a deadline for the assassination.

Other postings called for users who used the inflammatory hashtag to be contacted by authorities.  MORE HERE

  1. I worry for the entire Trump family safety although I know the people in charge are proud protectors. It disgusts me how we allow liberals to get away with this, but it will end 1/20/17. And in the interim I just bought a shit load of discounted Amazon MAGA hats and plan to piss off all libs at family holidays through Jan (a few specific targets too!!).

  2. It’s been eight years of sucking up to the liberal president by the press.
    Now it’s time to hold the republican president accountable for every word he has ever spoken.
    Out come the knives

  3. Couldn’t put my finger on it, quite. This is being driven by that guy in the WH. I think it’s cover for him to escape immediate scrutiny and to get off the hook. And there’s Sundance today saying the exact same thing. Spooky. If the rioting and tantrums go on long enough, people will be inclined to forgive obama anything just to make it stop. It’s just like your four year-old throwing themselves down on the floor at the grocery store. You just want to get your damn groceries and get home!

  4. ..and they have already deployed the media minions. I knew something was up when I heard the ‘Ford pardoned Nixon so the nation could move forward and heal’, meme’.
    What a bunch of BS

  5. TSUNAMI, had my fill. My car gets stopped by a bunch a white pussies and a couple black youts with barbed wire wrapped around baseball bats smashing my car WINDOW! Like happened to that poor woman in Seattle last night, better call the coroner with a bunch of space. When I’m in fear for my life I ain’t particular.

  6. TSUNAMI, Great question. I don’t really think they care or actually have a cause. It’s just something to do for them. They picked the cities they are rioting in because those cities head LEO’s lean hard left. It working well in Seattle. LEO has been told to stand down. Let’s see who’s rescue they run to when the cavalry arrives. I’ll email you some links.
