It’s always a Trump supporter, isn’t it?

Courtesy of HuffPo:

A California man has been arrested after making more than a dozen calls to The Boston Globe newspaper threatening to kill its employees.

The FBI arrested Robert D. Chain, 68, on Thursday in connection with calls he allegedly made earlier this month after the Globe announced it was encouraging other newspapers around the country to address political attacks on the media.

Transcripts of the threats, submitted in charging documents, contain explicit language that appears uncensored below.

“Hey, how’s your pussy smell today, nice and fresh?” Chain allegedly said in one of the 14 calls he placed over the course of August. “We are going to shoot you motherfuckers in the head, you Boston Globe cocksuckers. Shoot every fucking one of you.”

In another, Chain allegedly admitted that the calls threatening to kill the newspaper’s employees were in response to what he perceived as negative coverage of President Donald Trump.

“Because you are the enemy of the people and I want you to go fuck yourself,” he said in and Aug. 22 phone call to a Globe journalist, according to charging documents. “As long as you keep attacking the President, the duly elected President of the United States, in the continuation of your treasonous and seditious acts, I will continue to threats [sic], harass, and annoy the Boston Globe, owned by the New York Times, the other fake news.”

I don’t know, do you think this guy might just have been responding to tweets like this?

I mean just maybe?

I hope that no reporters are murdered or injured during Trump’s time in office, but if any of them are I certainly hope that their bosses will sue the shit out of Donald Trump for fomenting violence against the people doing their job to hold him accountable and to inform the American people.

      ‘Asked if McCain would have been a better president, Trump declined to say, even as his press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, stared at him.

      “I don’t want to comment on it,” he said. “I have a very strong opinion, all right.”

      Sanders, he joked, was “having a nervous breakdown” over his response. “Maybe I’ll give you that answer some day later.”<dotard

    Catch & Kill>”Farrow had begun to suspect that Oppenheim—who moonlighted as a Hollywood screenwriter—was potentially communicating with Weinstein directly about the story, according to the sources.”
    “While Oppenheim told staffers at a division-wide town-hall meeting that he took responsibility for the decision to let the story go, he privately told at least one colleague that NBC News Chairman Andrew Lack and Senior Communications Vice President Mark Kornblau had made him a scapegoat.

    “He said to me, ‘It wasn’t my decision,’” said the colleague who spoke to Oppenheim after Farrow’s story was published at The New Yorker. “‘Mark Kornblau and Andy Lack are trying to throw me under the bus when it was Andy’s decision,’” the colleague recalled Oppenheim saying.”

    ‘Producer Rich McHugh says the order to stop the sexual assault story came from the “very highest levels of NBC.”’
    “Farrow has won a Pulitzer Prize for a series of articles that revealed allegations of sexual harassment and assault—and questions have lingered about why the network gave up on the story that helped launch the #MeToo movement.”

      “Producer Rich McHugh, who recently left NBC’s investigative unit, called the network’s handling of Farrow’s reporting, which originated at the network, “a massive breach of journalistic integrity.””
      I was ordered to stop, not to interview this woman,” McHugh told the Times. “And to STAND DOWN on the story altogether.” “I think it’s fair to say that there was a point in our reporting where I felt there were obstacles to us reporting this externally, and there were obstacles to us reporting this internally,” McHugh said. “Externally, I had Weinstein associates calling me repeatedly. I knew that Weinstein was calling NBC executives directly. One time it even happened when we were in the room.”

    So, it doesn’t matter that the imbecile in the Oval Office can incite violence against his fellow citizens as long as he is perceived as remaining strong in promoting his MAGA agenda. How very sad it is to see the dreadful decline of a once great nation under this current Presidency. How long will this national nightmare be tolerated?

    ““Trump has tried to discredit Mueller, discredit Sessions and defend Manafort, the Post‘s White House bureau chief, Phil Rucker noted. “But our poll found it isn’t working. 63 percent support Mueller investigation. 64 percent say Sessions shouldn’t be fired. 67 percent say case against Manafort was justified.””

    Time for Trump fans to declare pollsters are biased, wrong, fake news etc – because this poll is very very bad for their God-king”

    I love when guys like @parscale (Trump reelection campaign manager) stupidly attack polls that are bad for his guy. Yes, Trump folks: Dont worry about his reelection, the polls are wrong. He has it in the bag. Why, not all of you even need to vote! He's so popular, you can coast!<kurtE

    Whats terrifying about how Trumpers are dealing with polls that show Trump unpopularity growing: They are INSTANTLY saying illegal aliens are being polled. If Trump loses, expect these types to call for the election to be invalidated because of "fraud.""
