CEO loses his job after posting that he will kill Donald Trump

Now he should be prosecuted
Why? Encourage him! The secret service needs to be kept on their toes. He would then be put in his place, a place of stupidity.

That is if he doesn't have a large enough crowd supporting him. The Clinton crowd (aka: pencil pushers) for supporters would be laughable. And I live in Arkansas and had the Clinton's for Governor, before they moved to D.C. in the White House. Arkansas voted all Trump except for maybe two counties. One of which was the state capital. A little summary that in itself should tell who the Clinton followers are.

Difference is he said things on Twitter that many people were thinking but wouldn't say due to politically correct BS. I doubt a lot of people are thinking of killing a President, regardless of which side of the isle you vote.
So because he's not being politically correct he get a pass? What a load of crap. Hitler wasn't politically correct when he ran on an identical platform as Trump (as in screw the establishment, make germany great again, and deport the jews). Yes, if that sounds eerily like Hitler that's because it is. Both men used fear of non-whites, the weak economy, and nationalistic rhetoric to win their elections. We even have Trump supports painting swastikas on public buildings and the KKK openly supporting and celebrating Trump.
That's what I keep telling the constipated conservatives on this site, but they cannot hear it, see it, or feel it. Must be they are all evangelicals who think that we're all flawed - which, IMO, we are - but that Trump should get a pass even though he refuses to repent and has no clue what repentance is. I wonder when they are going to claim Trump walked on water, but even if they do, it will be on stilts made of bone.

On the bright side - the way things are going right now with the transition, it looks like we will have four years of comedic buffonery to look forward to. Trump, I bet, will get less done than 44 and 43 combined. In the meantime, those who voted for him will still be waiting for their savior to come forth while the picket fence gets built and criminal illegal aliens get booted - and all the while, nothing will get better for those who voted for him. So, when 45 realizes he got nothing done at the end of the term, he will blame Hillary again.

Jeez, this is why I used my vote on Marijuana reform. Both sides are batshit crazy.
It's not that both sides are crazy. It's that "we the people" have let the system, not the people, the system that nominates candidates get corrupt. And now that the system has the power to fight and protect itself, a war is the only way to dethrone the power that holds it this way. And that is assuming allot in that it would be better after a war.
I also keep saying this to the conflagrants on this site. The system IS already Skynet, and they voted them in.

It's time we as a nation came together to build a time machine to assassinate Hitler - the one thing we all agree on. Well, almost all of us.
They already tried that - it's called Command and Conquer: Red Alert. The Soviets end up becoming a superpower and start two world wars.

You have that wrong. Hitler didn't want to deport the Jews. He thought of them as Deplorable. Not worthy of saving. Who do you think sounds more dangerous, someone that wants to deport illegal aliens or someone that considers half their citizens deplorable and not worth saving.
Is there a difference? Simply flip the intent around in that deporting them certainly implies that they are not worth saving.

But this is just a smoke screen as it was back in Adolf's day. Why? Because if things are bad enough, and there are enough angry people who think that people need to "tell it like it is," then illegal aliens, jews, whatever, become the scapegoat. When you kill the scapegoat, you only kill the implied cause of the problem, not the problem itself. As I see it, that is where the danger is.

All this deporting trash talk is simply giving a focal point to the anger of the general populace right now - and as it did then. You can pretend all you want that the scapegoats are the problem, but when you wake up in the morning after the scapegoats are gone, the problems will remain.

So tell me, how is deporting anyone going to bring jobs to the impoverished who think Humpty Trumpty is the second coming? Deporting the aliens, building the picket fence, and whatever else Humpty Trumpty can think of to do to the scapegoats is a move he will make to demonstrate that he is coming through with his campaign promises while he gives it to those who voted him in squarely up the rear.

One can only wonder what history would look like if only the Native Americans had had a limitless supply of Hitler references to bombard their pesky leaders with every time someone raised concerns over demographics. Maybe then immigration wouldn't have wiped them out. I guess we'll never know.

Not that you are using highly offensive words but I'd recommend staying away from name calling. That's only going to turn away people from engaging in worthwhile conversation.

To me, Trump is the no man's sky of politicians. He made some big promises, some of which are ethically charged, and already we are seeing that he isn't going to do what he said. The wall is going to be part fence, the ACA will only be partially repealed, and he will only deport illegal aliens with a criminal record.

Believe it or not, Trump is not the big surprise in this election. People like him have won in the past. The big story in this election was the impact of illegitimate sources of news on the populace. You had the Russians leaking parts of documents (likely because you get more fire when taken out of context) to Wikileaks, Facebook News reels publishing wildly false information (apparently around 40% of americans get at least some of their news from Facebook), and organizations like Breitbart and Fox News. It's pretty bad when a fox news anchor has to redact his statements because they were blatantly false. Aside from Fox News, none of these options provided credible sources. The capability for the internet to spread misinformation is just as great as providing good information. It would be very kind of me to label any of these Yellow Journalism because they haven sunken far below that level.

If you ask me the electoral college should veto a Trump presidency. It was instituted for two reasons. One is to make sure that small states had at least some representation (Your vote is 3x more powerful in a small state than say in california). The second reason is to protect the populace from itself. The founding fathers were well aware that the whims of the people were not always what was best for America.

For a bit of fun reference, go look at any Yahoo news article about politics. Nearly a 100% chance you will see some very hateful comments from Trump supporters and another complaining about liberals (which is ironic given guns rights is traditional a liberal ideal that has been brought into the conservative fold).

If you don't like my new president - just keep your mouth shut, pack your bags and move.

I voted for him.

He's going to make America Great Again.

Yeah that's what I don't think people are getting it's not his comments but as a CEO there are some things you should pull back the reins on.. in PUBLIC.. he didn't cover himself..

And his last post was VERY clear.. in NO UNCERTAIN Terms.. so what does that mean? It's not LONGER a joke!
He brought on his own downfall on by himself. You'd assume that being a CEO he would have an understanding of responsibility and not let his emotions run rampant. He has every right to think like that and even mutter them to his close confidants, but to post on social media for the whole world to read?..

Several people say similar things int he comments here. Along the lines of "it's okay if he feels that way, but . . ." It's okay that he wants to kill someone? Someone who has done him no personal harm? What??? People take their politics too seriously.

Trump asked to shot Hillary on the elections.

An US president saying that....
yeah.. Trump said a lot of things but asking for Hillary to be shot is NOT one of them.. so let's not even argue, show me the PROOF! I expect to NEVER hear from you again.. next time don't post until you get your FACTS straight.

so we have to move because *WE* don't agree with you? LOL.. YOU move.. we were here first.

We're gonna build a wall.

The side of it you're on depends on you.
Good luck with that wall. As I said before, I see it is a smoke screen that appeals to the deeper emotions many Americans feel these days - primarily the anger. It is a feel good operation for those who think that the problems we face in America are entirely of external origin.

I agree, there IS something wrong in America. In fact, I think there IS something wrong in the world these days. And, as I see it, the present state of politics in America is a symptom of the deeper problem.

In the US we blame presidents for not getting anything accomplished while for the past 16 or so years, little has been accomplished because of resistance in congress and the insistence of certain factions on making presidencies failures.

We blame the lack of jobs in the US on presidents when it is congress that have passed laws that favor companies moving jobs overseas.

I realize that this is highly unlikely to change your mind, however, IF that wall is built, I am willing to bet that there will come a time when people realize that it did not solve any of the problems that it was supposed to solve.

It is much easier to blame problems on others, to scapegoat them as I've mentioned before, than it is to own up to those problems as problems from within and then solve them. Which brings to mind that Babylon 5 quote...

Such was the sentiment in Nazi Germany at the time...

They do but I guess the prez elect security division has to take all threats seriously. They don't know whether he's joking, bonkers or serious.

Hey, he was with guys of a gun association and said something like someone here should fix hillary, now, if he was with dentist I would think hillary has a teeth problem. And what's up with your higly emotional response of you don't wanting to hear me again. I guess you actually believe in trump as a magic solution for everything. As I said before the only thing good I see in trump is that he isn't from the political circle of the US. Sorry for the bad english.
