The president’s hateful rhetoric has been an issue since before he even started campaigning for the presidency. It is believed by many that Trump is the sole instigator in various attacks that have happened on his watch simply because he supports and normalizes hate on a level that his supporters feed on. Or maybe they just love the reality television quality that The Donald brings to American government because they can finally understand politics.
One of Trump’s supporters is at it again, allegedly threatening to kill a U.S. senator.
According to TMZ:
“Brooklyn resident Michael Brogan was charged Wednesday with threatening to murder the unnamed senator. Prosecutors say the senator’s staff alerted authorities earlier this month when they got a disturbing and threatening voice message.”
@NRA I dunno, I think Michael Brogan is a good reason for universal background checks. I'd never allow this guy to own guns.

Court papers reveal that the Trump supporter said this during that psychotic phone call:
“You are an absolute piece of s**t, Senator. Senator, and I put that in quotation marks, you’re a f**king phony. You watch your ass cause I [unintelligible], I’m going to put a bullet in ya.”
“When I’m in D.C. and you’re there, I got your f**king mark on you stupid bitch. You and your constant lambasting of President Trump.”

Then he mentions his savior, President Trump:
“Oh, reproductive rights, reproductive rights. You know what? I’m cursing and I’m in sin because of people like you, ok? Cause I value the God given right to life.”
The voicemail ends with:
“If I saw you, I’d snuff your stupid f**king ass. I’d put a f**king bullet in you. You watch your ass. If I see you on the streets, I’m gonna f**king light you up with f**king bullets.”

Totally normal behavior. If you’re a mentally defective basement dweller who can’t see the forest for the trees.
Brogan reportedly admitted to calling the senator, but claimed amnesia as to what exactly he said during the fateful message that he obviously didn’t expect police to trace back to him.
