(Tea Party 247) – Although no one in the media seems to care, the President of the United States faces frequent threats of violence from his deranged (albeit rather disorganized and inexperienced) radical enemies on the left.
As the Deep State continues their relentless assaults on his historical presidency, triggered and hysterical plebs are also trying to stop him however they can.
Thanks to the brave men and women of the Secret Service, however, another half-baked attempt on POTUS’ life has been thwarted.
Big League Politics reports:
A man carrying a knife was arrested outside the White House today because he told a Secret Service agent that he was there to assassinate President Trump.
The man with the knife, Roger Hedgpeth, 25, was arrested for making threats, and his car was impounded.
“I am here to assassinate President Donald Trump,” he told a Secret Service officer, the police report said, according to the Washington Post. “I have a knife to do it with.”
Authorities found a 3.5-inch knife in a sheath on his hip.
Yahoo News reports that Hedgpeth was taken into custody before he was brought to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.
According to the Post, Hedgpeth is from Brandon, Florida. Police said he is a “critically missing/endangered person as well as a mental health consumer.”
Although there have been other attempts to breach White House security, this is a significant event because it involved an actual weapon.
Meanwhile, in this crazy person’s home state, another crazy person targeted a group of Trump supporters registering voters outside a Walmart this weekend.
A man in Florida is under arrest after he deliberately drove a van into a tent where voters were being registered by local Republicans, authorities in Jacksonville said Sunday.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said via social media that 27-year-old Gregory William Loel Timm has been charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a person 65 years old or older, one count of criminal mischief, and driving with a suspended license. The Republican party of Duval County said it had set up the tent on Saturday in order to register voters.
The county GOP said via Twitter that six volunteers for President Donald Trump’s campaign “were intentionally targeted while registering voters.”
Local media said there were no injuries.
“Kind of out of the blue, a man approached us in a van, was waving at us, kind of a friendly demeanor, thought he was coming up to talk to us, instead he accelerated his vehicle and plowed right into our tent, our tables,” volunteer Mark Alfieri told television station WJAX.
Afterward, he backed up, recorded the damaged tent and scattered signs on his cell phone and made obscene gestures before leaving, Alfieri said.
Last week was a devastating week for Trump-haters everywhere, and Nancy Pelosi wasn’t the only one who decided to throw a temper tantrum in response.
We can only expect, however, that violence will increase as the election gets closer.
