Comedian (if you can even call her that) Kathy Griffin is at it again. The anti-Trumper took to Twitter to advocate the physical assault and possible death of President Donald Trump.
She called for someone to stab the president with a "syringe with nothing but air inside," which is can be fatal if it creates an embolism.
Physically threatening the president of the United States is a federal offense. Physical threats also constitute a violation of Twitter’s terms of service that can result in permanently getting kicked off the platform. “We will immediately and permanently suspend any account found to be posting violent threats,” the social media giant says on its official site.
Kathy Griffin made the alarming threat in two tweets posted late Tuesday. In the first tweet, she was responding to President Trump’s comments made during a White House event for diabetes. The president said that he doesn’t use insulin, to which Griffin replied: “Syringe with nothing but air inside would do the trick. FUCK TRUMP.”
When the Washington Examiner tweeted about Griffin's tasteless post, advocating “for someone to stab [Trump] with syringe full of air. Air embolisms, caused by air getting into the bloodstream, can be fatal.”
Griffin responded: “I SURE DID, FUCKER.”
Although her account is still active, Twitter did remove Griffin's tweet on Wednesday, which lines up with their terms of service that say “you may not threaten violence against an individual or a group of people. We also prohibit the glorification of violence.”
Twitter defines violent threats as “statements of an intent to kill or inflict serious physical harm on a specific person or group of people.”
According to federal law, a person who physically threatens the president can spend up to five years in prison. Perhaps we will finally see that C U Next Tuesday behind bars.
