Just ignore that ‘Class E Felony’ after an election loss. It was a joke.
A 24-year-old man from Ohio has been charged in a federal court after tweeting a threat to assassinate President-elect Donald Trump on election night.
Zachary Benson, from Fairview Park in Cleveland, posted the remark on Twitter a few minutes before the Republican nominee was declared the winner of last week’s election.
Benson tweeted: ‘My life goal is to assassinate Trump. Don’t care if I serve infinite sentences. That man deserves to decease (sic) existing.’
Seconds earlier he tweeted: ‘Diplomacy. F***ing fools. I hate you all. I want to bomb every one of your voting booths and your general areas.’
Benson said he had no intention of following through with the threat and was ‘just frustrated thinking about how President-elect Trump’s policies could affect his job’.
He apparently deleted the tweets when he woke up in the morning, but the Secret Service had already been tipped off about them.

Here’s the awkward thing… it’s against the law. You’ve made a threat against a successor to the Presidency. That’s serious.
The Secret Service must be working their asses off right now!
It’s a good think that the leftists are so very, very tolerant.
