Secret Service Looking Into Dem Lawmaker’s Threat to Make Trump “Half Term President”

Republicans demand Hamann’s resignation over “implied death threat”

null

The Secret Service is looking into what some are calling a death threat made by Democratic lawmaker Scott Hamann, who vowed to make Trump a “half term president” if he ever got “within 10 feet” of him.

Hamann posted a crazed Facebook rant in which he declared, “Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that pussy.”

Hamann, who represents a district in South Portland, went on to accuse Trump of being “anti-American,” and an “admitted rapist” who was “installed by the Russians.”

Dave Watson, the resident agent in charge of the U.S. Secret Service field office in Portland, told the Press Herald that his office was receiving calls from the public about Hamann’s Facebook post.

“We are looking into it, but as to whether an investigation has been opened, I can’t comment on that,” Watson said. “But we have been getting messages.”

After a huge backlash, Hamann offered half-hearted apology, stating, “I regret my impulsive decision to post something aggressively sarcastic and inappropriate in a Facebook exchange with a childhood friend.”

Furious Republicans are demanding House Speaker Sara Gideon call for Hamann’s resignation, with Demi Kouzounas, chairwoman of the Maine Republican Party, calling Hamann “unhinged and dangerous.”

“Words cannot even begin to describe the level of revulsion I feel after reading Rep. Scott Hamann’s recent tirade that has come to light,” Kouzounas said in a statement. “Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this tirade is an implied death threat against our president.”

However, Gideon’s spokeswoman said the Democratic representative “was on vacation and unavailable for comment”.

Many see Hamann’s threat as yet another example of how the left is inciting violence against Donald Trump and Republicans in general.

Last month, 66-year-old James T. Hodgkinson targeted Republican lawmakers in an attempted massacre after vowing on Facebook that he would “destroy” Trump and saw him as a “traitor”.

Despite innumerable violent attacks on Trump supporters across the country, the mainstream media has attempted to maintain the narrative that Trump’s rhetoric is responsible for the hatred, with some even going so far as to blame Hodgkinson’s attempted massacre on Trump, despite the fact that the culprit was a Bernie-supporting leftist.

    Throw a couple of these misanthropes in jail. Teach a lesson to others. When these threats from such as C-grade comedians and the shooting of republicans playing baseball still happen…… Desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Best thing we could do for the country is pick these would-be killers up and put them in a mental institution for at least a 72-hour observation. Do the same thing with insane media types. By insane, I mean those who call for the assassination of our President or those who call for the murder of all white people. Those people are insane and a danger to the rest of us. They should be locked up.

    There are dozens of statutes already on the books that apply to this guys threat. We are either a Nation of Laws, or we are NOT. He has already abrogated his oath of office and should be removed before being prosecuted. Inaction will only encourage more fools to repeat this behavior.

    This “man” should be in jail by now. No one in public office should now or EVER “threaten” a sitting @POTUS in office. You are an enemy of the country by this threat and therefore go to jail. As much as I despised Obama, never did I threaten him other than voting him out, the American way.

    Apology not excepted you POS. You call Trump a pussy. What have you done other than feed off of the American Taxpayer. Hope you get your butt kicked out of office.

    In 1969 I was arrested for giving Richasrd Nixon the bird. Because I was a teenager at that point they let me go with a very stern warning . It seems at the bird was considered to be a violent threat and was a felony offense . So why are all these liberals allowed to vocally and publicly threaten the life of the president ? They got mad when Obama got threatened in any way , but it’s okay to threaten the president if he’s not a Muslim terrorist married to a man posing as a woman who spent every minute not golfing or on vacation aiding abetting and supporting Islamic terrorists all over the world ?

      Got that right Steve.
