Hollywood grande dame Carole Cooke apparently raised more than just a few eyebrows with her suggestion to assassinate President Donald Trump.
“Where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?” the 94-year-old actress said when a TMZ photographer caught up with her and her husband as they left a restaurant Sunday night.
When asked to clarify if she meant someone should kill the president, Cooke’s response was, “Why not?”
According to TMZ:
Our sources say the Secret Service saw our post and are concerned enough that they want a chit chat with the 94-year-old actress. They were quick to add it’s not an official investigation — just due diligence. If the interview unearths anything ominous, only then would it become an official investigation.
“The Secret Service is aware of the comment. While we do not confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations, we can say we investigate all threats against the President,” the agency said officially.
As is typical with liberals, none of Cooke’s Hollywood colleagues called her out for her suggestion.

“You have the right to remain silent.” These are the lines this actress may need to memorize! This is not just sick-it’s a crime. https://t.co/ql5nBbqktv

Remember the things Peter Fonda said about Barron Trump and ICE agent’s children? And I bet no Secret Service visited him. Peter Fonda still has a verified Twitter account even.

But notice no one will disavow this…if the shoe was on the other foot? There would be screeching expecting a prompt statement to disavow it…

It’s gonna be ignored like every other thinly veiled threat from the “we go high” group of front holes.

That’s not cool, no matter how much you dislike someone, that’s never cool.

Hopefully she has cleared her schedule for the impending visit from the Secret Service! #JustSaying
