Remember when Leftists were concerned Obama was in danger of being assassinated. Undoubtedly President Trump faces a bigger threat.
Before I get to the stories of the assassination of President Trump, let’s look closer at Obama.
We are told that “racist” America couldn’t stand having a half black man as president, so surely somebody would get rid of the guy.
I’m not sure how many death threats Obama got. But if there were many, they certainly weren’t reported. Perhaps the media was in a fake news quandary?
If they reported that people wanted Obama dead, then it would mean that he’s not liked. And as we were told repeatedly, “Everybody loved Obama.”
And that love was not just in America, but worldwide. Obama became the world’s president. He was too big for one country to own. Thus needless to say, Obama survived 8 years with hardly a peep.
A guy flew a copter of sorts onto the White House grounds, but he wasn’t armed. Some idiot jumped the gate once, but again, that was about it.
Maybe Biden was a good insurance policy after all? Trump on the other hand has reason to worry.
As Charisma reported, here’s a summary of the coverage of threats against President Trump:

I wrote at the time of Michael Moore’s “wishful thinking,” when it came to President-elect entering the White House.
There remains one way to keep him out of the White House, according to the hopeful Left. Here’s how Leftist activist and filmmaker Michael Moore put it toward the end of the video:
“…something crazy” could happen before Inauguration Day that prevents Trump from ever taking office.
Then came the New Year, and the reports kept coming in.

Can you imagine for just a moment what the outcry would be if there were a fraction of articles written about the assassination of Barack Obama?
Forget the double-standard. What’s more interesting is the how openly the media and other Leftist kooks discuss something so vile. And don’t think for one second these terrorists wouldn’t try to do it.
