Donald Trump is going to keep the Secret Service very busy during his historic presidency, thanks to liberal nutcases.
Trump, who has received countless death threats from anonymous morons online, is now on the receiving end of an assassination threat from a CEO with ties to the CIA.
Matt Harrigan, the CEO of PacketSled, threatened to kill Trump with a sniper rifle in a series of deranged Facebook comments captured on Reddit.
(Update: Harrigan resigned from the San Diego cybersecurity company on Nov. 15, 2016.)“I’m going to kill the President elect,” Harrigan wrote. “Bring it Secret Service.”
Harrigan continued: “Getting a sniper rifle and perching myself where it counts. Find a bedroom in the White House that suits you motherf*cker. I’ll find you.”
Hours later, Harrigan apologized for his assassination threat on Facebook, saying it was all a joke:
“My recent facebook comment was intended to be a joke, in the context of a larger conversation, and only privately shared as such … I apologize if anything that I said was either taken seriously, was offensive, or caused any legitimate concern.“
Harrigan’s company didn’t find the “joke” funny and placed him on administrative leave. On Nov. 15, 2016, Harrigan resigned.
In a statement, PacketSled wrote:
“PacketSled takes recent comments made by our CEO seriously. Once we were made aware of these comments, we immediately reported this information to the secret service and will cooperate fully with any inquiries … Our CEO has been placed on administrative leave.”
The death threat was all the more shocking because Harrigan bragged about having ties to the CIA on Facebook:
Sadly, these “jokes” about assassinating President-elect Trump are increasingly common.
Last week, Monisha Rajesh, a columnist for the Telegraph and the Guardian newspaper, deleted her Twitter account shortly after tweeting that “it’s about time a presidential assassination.”
When contacted, the Guardian distanced itself from Rajesh, telling Breitbart: “Monisha Rajesh is an infrequent freelance contributor, not a staff writer, and the Guardian cannot take responsibility for comments expressed by her in a personal capacity.”
