“Threatening the President of the United States is a serious crime and a class E felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President of the United States.“
Kentucky woman Heather Lowrey, who described herself as a Louisville “vixen and aspiring wrestling diva” on her Twitter profile before going into “electronic hiding,” tweeted this message January 17:
Her “threat” suggestion became the “target” of a serious social media “backlash” from the public and “termination” by her own employers after suggesting on Twitter it would be “kind for someone to assassinate Donald Trump.”
It is “illegal” in the United States to threaten to “kill or injure” any sitting president and his family.
Her tweet “ignited” a firestorm on social media, with comments such as this from Leslie Maiko: “It seems this rotted soul #LiberalLunatic wench #HeatherChristineLowrey aka #VSAddict22 has gone in2 hiding & shut down her Twitter. Good.”
Her employers soon after “fired” Lowrey and issued public statements “distancing” themselves from her threatening tweet.
One of them, ”Va Va Vixens,” a burlesque group “released” the following statement:
“Please, know that we, at Va Va Vixens, do not condone the behavior of Heather Lowrey. She was dismissed the moment we were informed of this incident. We have a zero tolerance policy for such. We do not condone hate by any party and will not partake in it. We in no way support negative behavior or malicious intent from anyone.”
The U.S. Secret Service “interviewed” Lowrey in the wake of her tweet, and is continuing to “investigate” the matter.
Lowrey isn’t the “only” person making headlines for potential “threats” against Trump.
Pop star “Madonna” said during Saturday’s women’s march on Washington that she herself has thought “an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”
During a “profanity-laced” speech at the protest rally in Washington, D.C. the 58-year-old “Rebel Heart” singer said she had felt “angry” and “outraged” over Donald Trump becoming the country’s 45th president.
“I’m angry. Yes, I’m outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won’t change anything. We cannot fall into despair.”
A spokesman for the Secret Service reportedly told The Gateway Pundit that the agency was “aware” of the singer’s comments and would “open” an investigation, though the final decision on whether to “prosecute” would be made by the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Madonna performed two songs during her appearance at the Women’s March, “Express Yourself” and “Human Nature.”
During “Human Nature,” the singer changed the song’s lyrics to include “Donald Trump, suck a dick.”
On Sunday Madonna continued her “diatribe” against Donald Trump and the Secret Service tweeting “Fuck Donald Trump and Fuck the Secret Service” deleting the post later
Madonna’s comments aired “uncensored” on several cable TV networks, leading to “apologies” from some on-air anchors.
Madonna was one of Trump’s biggest celebrity “antagonists” during the election.
In October, the pop star offered to perform oral sex on anyone who voted for former Democratic presidential “nominee” Hillary Clinton.
Madonna wasn’t the only “celebrities” who participated in Saturday’s march.
Other stars on hand included Alicia Keys, Amy Schumer, Ashley Judd, Scarlet Johansson, Cher, Julia Roberts and Katy Perry.
Here are a slew of other “would-be assassins”…
Now would be a “good” time to make a “powerful” statement by the “new” administration.
Arrest “Madonna” and all other “would-be assassins,” charge them with “threatening” the President or Government “property” and lock them up in “prison” for several years.
That would be a major “deterrent” for others shooting their “mouths” off.
Until we take these “threats” seriously and “prosecute” nothing will “change.”
