Secret Service wants to have a chat with legendary actress that suggested assassinating Trump

Hollywood grande dame Carole Cooke apparently raised more than just a few eyebrows with her suggestion to assassinate President Donald Trump.

The Broadway legend may be on the Secret Service radar after commenting about Trump and the man responsible for assassinating President Abraham Lincoln, TMZ reported.

“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.
