I’m sure you’ve heard that a Florida man has been arrested for making death threats against President-elect Donald Trump.
And imagine my utter lack of surprise when I learned that said Florida man, Dominic Puopolo Jr., is a close family friend of the Clintons.
Have you noticed how there is never more than two degrees of separation between the Clintons and someone issuing death threats?
Or, come to think of it, someone actually carrying them out.
Come on. We all know about the Clinton body count.
You’d think the Clinton Crime Family would make sure to have several more layers between them and the person who wants to kill a Clinton enemy.
After all, they’ve been at this for years. Shouldn’t they be better at it?
But imagine if the tables were turned.
If Hillary (God forbid) had won the election and a close family friend of Donald Trump went on Facebook and announced he planned to assassinate her, what would the reaction be?
John Lewis would be so outraged, his entire face would collapse into his nose as if it were a sinkhole.
Rosie O’Donnell would be demanding Trump’s head on a platter.
Joss Whedon would make another stupid video.
Madonna would shave her pubic hair in the shape of a noose.
And the anchors on CNN would be demanding Congressional hearings to see what Donald Trump knew and when he knew it.
But the Clintons being two degrees away from this would-be assassin appears not to have even made the news at CNN.
I searched Google and found nothing.
In fact, I got the news from the UK Daily Mail.
It could just be that CNN is too busy imagining Trump and Pence being “wiped out” in an assassination on Inauguration Day to notice the Clinton connection to an actual assassination threat.
Yes, you read that right. CNN is playing “Let’s Pretend Trump and Pence get wiped out.”
I wish I was kidding. But I’m not.
Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.
And if the tables were turned and Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson indulged in their own game of “What if” with a President-Elect Hillary?
Could you imagine the outrage?
The thing both CNN and Dominic Puopolo Jr. have in common is a devotion to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Honestly, scratch the surface of anyone wishing the death of Donald Trump, and you find a connection to Hillary Clinton.
She’s like an angel of death.
Or Michael Corleone.
Either way, she’s never that far removed from people with murderous impulses.
