While the media tsk tsks President Donald Trump and blames his “harsh rhetoric” for the rash of fake bombs sent to Democrat officials on Wednesday, only a day earlier The New York Times published a short story featuring the Secret Service helping a terrorist to assassinate President Trump.
The media is pretending that the rash of fake bombs sent to high-profile Democrats on Wednesday is all President Trump’s fault.
Trump is blamed for his “dangerous rhetoric,” but only the day before the purported pipe bombs were publicized by the news media, the so-called “paper of record” was publishing fantasy pieces featuring Trump’s assassination.
On October 22, the Times printed several short pieces by writers who the paper claimed were “imagining Trump’s next chapter.”
They were all filled with hate, but one in particular featured a member of the Secret Service helping a “Russian” assassinate Trump.
The story in question was entitled, “How It Ends,” by writer Zoë Sharp.
It featured this ending of a Russian trying to kill the president:
The Russian waited until they were a few steps past before he drew the gun. He sighted on the center of the president’s back, and squeezed the trigger.
The Makarov misfired.
The Secret Service agent at the president’s shoulder heard the click, spun into a crouch. He registered the scene instantly, drawing his own weapon with razor-edge reflexes.
The Russian tasted failure. He closed his eyes and waited to pay the cost.
It did not come.
He opened his eyes. The Secret Service agent stood before him, presenting his Glock, butt first.
“Here,” the agent said politely. “Use mine. …”
Of course, Secret Service agents are issued the Sig Sauer, but, whatever.
Yet, these haters claim that it is the right acting irresponsibly.
The @NYTimes today: "He sighted on the center of the president’s back, and squeezed the trigger [misfire]… The Secret Service agent stood before him, presenting his Glock, butt first. “Here,” the agent said politely. “Use mine. …”"
