Creator of Melania ad alleges threats from Trump supporters

MairOn Monday, Liz Mair, the woman whose super PAC created and disseminated an ad using a nude photo of Melania Trump from 2000, said on Twitter that she was receiving threats from supporters of GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

According to Mair, her mother also received a threatening call from a Trump supporter.

“She woke up and there was a very, very nasty threatening voicemail from somebody who’s a Trump supporter. She’s going to make a decision about a police report,” Mair said, according to MSNBC. “I’ve already had to file a police report about a Trump supporter who threatened to behead me.”

According to Mair, someone — presumably a Trump supporter — allegedly posted her address:

Trump supporters continue to claim that Ted Cruz put out the ad that is now causing so much angst.  But Cruz had nothing to do with it and has called it inappropriate.

The response was quite predictable:




AS it should.  Politics is a rough and tumble occupation, but absolutely nothing excuses death threats.

MSNBC added:

As Trump routinely tweets attacks at his rivals that are then seen by his 6 million Twitter followers, others take it further: Ganging up, harassing and threatening his critics online and in person for weeks and months on end. They adopt Trump-like insults — his critics are often “losers” — and routinely publish and circulate private information, just as Trump did last summer when he read rival candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number aloud on live television.

Apparently, Mair is not the only one who has been harassed by Trump supporters.

Conservative blogger Bethany Mandel told MSNBC she was routinely harassed by apparent Trump supporters.

After being called called a “slimy Jewess” and receiving death threats on Facebook, she purchased a .22 Magnum revolver.

“This is what life will be like under Trump,” she said.  “I have nightmares that someone’s trying to break into our apartment, and it’s going to take 10 minutes for a patrol car” to arrive.

The MSNBC article has more allegations of threats from individuals identified as Trump supporters, and is worth a read.

One has to wonder: How far is this going to go?

“Make it stop,” said a post at Twitchy.  We agree.
