NY Times Columnist Suggests Assassinating Donald Trump So He Can’t Win the Election
Liberal mainstream media journalists are so terrified of losing their direct pipeline to the White House, that one of them suggested assassinating the GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.
“Good news guys I’ve figured out how the Trump campaign ends,” NY Times reporter Ross Douthat tweeted last night. His tweet contained a link to a trailer from the 1983 movie The Dead Zone, featuring an assassination attempt on a character played by actor Martin Sheen.
In the movie, the smarmy politician (Sheen) spots the would-be assassin (played by Christopher Walken) and holds up a baby to thwart the assassination attempt.
Imagine a NY TImes columnist “joking” about assassinating President Obama. He would be fired and thrown in jail.
In response to the angry backlash from his Twitter.com followers, Douthat deleted the tweet and issued an apology.
A lot readers were offended by my Trump/"Dead Zone" joke from yesterday. I can see why, and I've deleted the tweet. Apologies.
