A tweet posted on Wednesday that seemed to advocate the murder of President Trump received over 218,000 likes before it was eventually removed from Twitter. Moreover, the tweet, which can still be seen here, had been retweeted nearly 89,000 times.
Paul Joseph Watson said the tweet was posted in response to a 2016 Slate article about John Hinckley Jr.’s release from a psychiatric hospital. Hinckley was released last September, 35 years after his attempt to kill President Ronald Reagan in Washington DC.
“I hope he ready to go back because we need him again,” the Twitter user said.
Since being posted yesterday, the tweet has received over 70,000 retweets and over 170,000 likes.
The Twitter user who posted the tweet – @Simpboyz – links to the Paypal account of a person named Cameron Makell who lives in Baltimore.
Users on the original Slate tweet that linked to the article about Hinckley Jr. being released also joked about him killing Trump.
“Maybe he can meet our new president,” remarked one.
“Drop him off at a gun show and tell him Trump is banging Jodie,” added another – a reference to Hinckley Jr.’s obsession with Jodie Foster.
maybe he can meet our new president ☺😚

Actually, that already happened almost immediately after Trump’s election, as we reported here.
At the time, a search of the site found nine pages dedicated to funding Trump’s assassination. Shortly after our report went live, the pages were pulled.
Others also seemed okay with the idea of Hinckley killing Trump:
Just in time for a go at @realdonaldtrump!

While ‘jokes’ and serious assassination threats against Trump are rampant on Twitter, the fact that this one received over 70,000 retweets and 170,000 likes in less than 24 hours without being removed emphasizes how much of a far-left trash heap the social media network really is.
Not only that, it speaks volumes about the modern left in America, where deranged liberals actually think it’s okay to murder the president because their preferred candidate lost an election.
In February 2011, I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Sadly, liberals prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
