Amidst all the pearl-clutching and calls for ‘civility’ in politics by the Media (D), the formerly reputable New York Times runs a Trump assassination story. Lovely.
The New York Times, the newspaper that used to be considered the gold-standard of journalism, decided that, a couple of weeks away from a midterm election when the left and the right are so fiercely divided, they’d publish 5 short stories on the ‘next chapter’ in Trump’s administration.
They all had similar themes of the Mueller investigation, the ‘bad orange man’ that is President, and Russia.
One, however, was particularly disturbing in these times when leftwing mobs run wild and the Democrats and the Media (D) completely turn a blind eye — right up until a dumb rightwing group tries to give the left a taste of its own medicine. The story by novelist Zoë Sharp is titled ‘How It Ends‘ and it ends with assassination.
Here’s a sample:
The Russian landed at Dulles after 48 hours of traveling. Of necessity, he came from Moscow by a circuitous route. A long way with a very specific task. There would be no return flight.
In the airport bars, the TVs were tuned to different news channels but the story was the same. First the president’s campaign manager, then his lawyer, a Republican congressman, former aides, family members. Those who weren’t indicted were subpoenaed. House arrest had become fashionable.
Ah, yes. The entire administration is falling apart due to the Mueller investigation.
Of course, a Russian arrives in Washington in the midst of the turmoil. Whatever could he be there for?
He spent a day in his suite, watching the slow grind toward impeachment.
Around 11 p.m., his contact arrived. The man had been in deep cover for decades. In his briefcase was a bottle of Stolichnaya and a 9-millimeter Makarov semiautomatic pistol.
“There is no other way?” It was intended as a statement. It emerged as a question.
The contact shook his head. “When it comes out that he was handpicked at the highest possible level, our great nation will be the laughingstock of the world,” he said. “He must be silenced.”
Wow. He was ‘handpicked’ by Putin? Who could have seen that twist coming? And then, the moment comes:
When it was time, he went downstairs, took his place in the lobby before the entourage appeared. The hotel staff had been lined up to see their boss, the president, go by. A few of them applauded. Most did not.
The president didn’t seem to notice. He waved, in his desultory fashion. The Secret Service agents clustered around him, ushered him toward the armored limo idling outside at the curb.
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 Russian assassin fails — I’m on the edge of my seat, I tell you. What could possibly come next?
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. …”

Whoa! Did you see that coming? The brave Secret Service agent saves the Republic by working with the Russian assassin to kill the President.
Can’t you just imagine the giddiness of the author as she finished this piece on her MacBookPro?
The New York Times obviously thought so.
I guess the recent Ricin scares against Republicans — or the not-so-recent ricin scare that included all of the President’s children — just wasn’t as newsworthy as this piece of predictable, inane, fetishistic trash.
It looks like ‘The Gray Lady’ is going a little off her rocker with Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Maybe those folks at the New York Times can’t recall the Kathy Griffin Trump beheading stunt, or Madonna saying that she’d thought about ‘blowing up the White House’.
Or the many, many ‘jokes’ about assassinating the President. (See end of article) It’s unprecedented.
Nice timing. Ricin, Pipe bombs, and assassinations, oh my. Enjoy the inevitable fallout. God I hope this murder porn doesn’t inspire any further political violence.

New York Times: Be sure to read the story we published depicting Trump getting assassinated.
New York Times: We need to have a serious conversation about Trump’s rhetoric.

Why is this a problem?
Mainstream Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters, Sen. Cory Booker, even Hillary Clinton had said that the time for civility was over and confrontation is needed.
But they don’t seem to understand that civility has been over since November 8, 2016, when Hillary lost and didn’t concede.
Look at the long list of calls to assassinate President Trump that ClashDaily has reported on since the Election:
