Trump must have a “killer” personality, as many threats against his life have been made in recent weeks. It has been said, you either love him or you hate him and there are some that really, really hate him, tweeting, rapping and writing their death threats.
Johnathan Chait, a writer and commentator for New York Magazine tweeted out on March 2, 2016, ‘calling for the assassination of US GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, it reads, “Will simply offer a $100 million bounty for Donald Trump, dead or alive.”‘
Trump is the target of a great number of death threats. Since October of last year, at every public appearance, Trump has worn a bullet proof vest.
The threats come from all over. Drug lord El Chapo placed a $100 million bounty on Trump’s head, while tweeter’s posed their threats after Trump made controversial comments on Muslim immigration.
New York Times columnist Douthat’s sense of humor was to “poke fun at Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign by saying it will end by assassination?” Truth and Action followed this story, reporting:
Perhaps, Douthat is supporting a Trump assassination? Infowars reports on Duothat’s tweet, and examines the video he put forth in order to poke fun at Trump’s risky future.
“The tweet links to a video clip from the 1983 movie The Dead Zone, which features a character played by Christopher Walken attempting to gun down a political figure played by Martin Sheen.
In the plot, Walken’s character tries to kill the US Senatorial candidate (played by Sheen) because he has visions of him becoming president in the future and starting a nuclear war. Sheen’s character holds up a baby as a human shield during the assassination attempt, destroying his credibility.
Douthat bills himself as a conservative, but in his latest column for the New York Times he concludes that “President Hillary” would be a better choice for America than “our own nuclear-armed Berlusconi”.
Another way to live out one’s assassination aspirations toward Trump is in virtual reality. A safer way to rid oneself of hostile feelings towards Trump, both for you and Donald.
“Stump the Trump” allows players to kill Donald Trump by dropping a very large tree stump on him.
The more Trumps you kill, the higher your score goes. There are times when the side-scroller is filled with an army of Trumps, and if you’re skilled enough, you can kill multiple Trumps with one stump. The Republican frontrunner’s death is pictured gruesomely in cartoonish fashion. Once smashed, blood sprays everywhere and his limbs go flying.
And if your rage is not assuaged through gaming, then perhaps rapping with Rick Ross, while speeding down the highway will help. His lyrics suggest the murder of Trump.
“Assassinate Trump like I’m [George] Zimmerman, now accept these words as they came from Eminem,” the song goes.
More disturbing, the song features singer John Legend, who had a public dispute with Trump on Twitter in Nov.
“Here we have a mainstream rapper calling for the assassination – the murder – of a leading presidential candidate, but will this be denounced? Will his new record be pulled from store shelves? No, I doubt it,” Social commentator Mark Dice pointed out.
Those willing to take on the task of offing the Trump may include none other than Obama himself, if a report on The Examiner is to be believed. While the left has no doubt been gleefully ridiculing Donald for his statements in the past few months, as his star rises, Obama certainly has the capability to do the deed, if needed.
Trump has hit a nerve with many people in this great nation and social media certainly has brought the ugliness out into glaring lights for all to see. Whether one is a #nevertrump or a #makeamericagreatagain supporter, death threats are unAmerican, no matter how free one may think his speech may be.
