Actor Tom Arnold is under fire for tweeting what many saw as a thinly-veiled assassination threat against President Donald Trump.

The Hollywood liberal took his hatred of the president to a new level in a tweet warning of a JFK-style assassination in response to Trump’s arrival in Texas for a rally on Thursday.

“Just arrived at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Will be out shortly as we wait for more of you to get in! #TRUMP2020,” Trump tweeted ahead of the Dallas event, along with a video of the huge crowds waiting in line to see him.

Arnold – whose unhinged animosity toward the president has led to a string of embarrassing rants, accusations, and behaviors – reacted to Trump’s tweet with an eyebrow-raising response.

The tweet was soon deleted after many Twitter users said they reported it.

The star of Viceland’s “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes with Tom Arnold” and former husband of comedian Roseanne Barr, Arnold claimed in 2018 that the Secret Service paid him a visit after he challenged Trump to a fight in a tweet.

Arnold also referred to the infamous photo of comedian Kathy Griffin holding a fake, bloody Trump head.

Social media users wondered if Arnold’s tweet on Thursday in response to Trump’s arrival in Dallas was on the level of Griffin’s stunt.

The Media Research Center condemned the actor’s tweet as one “worthy of suspension” from the social media platform.

“Clearly Mr. Arnold is desperate after not being able to find a smoking gun against Trump with his own detective work, not to mention his frustration over not finding pop culture relevance again. It seems this was his last Hail Mary attempt at hurting the president since the RussiaGate and UkraineGate Democrat failsafes failed to trigger,” the site’s Gabriel Hays wrote.

Arnold, who purported to have formed some kind of friendship with Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, once worried that he could be assassinated because of supposedly damaging information he had on Trump, including tapes of him allegedly using the “n-word” while on “The Apprentice.”

Meanwhile, as Arnold was making his disgusting threat on Twitter, an armed man was actually arrested at the Trump rally in Dallas on Thursday evening.

One Twitter user, who wondered jokingly if the man arrested was Arnold, got an immediate rebuke from the actor.

New York congressional candidate Joey Saladino called for accountability in the wake of Arnold’s tweet, sparking a brief war or words between the two.

Twitter users torched Arnold for his latest expression of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
