A crazy person threatened to gun down “Fake News” CNN employees. I am so surprised. This is my surprised face.

Some crazy was arrested by the FBI after making dozens of threatening calls to CNN, promising to “gun [them] all down.”

I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours. I’m coming to Georgia right now to go to the CNN headquarters to fucking gun every single last one of you.”

This is what happens when the most powerful man on Earth relentlessly attacks the media — some unhinged people are going to take his words to heart and are going to feel compelled to act. It’s not unprecedented: doctors who have performed abortions have been killed because of rhetoric like this; a pizza place was nearly shot to pieces because of rhetoric like this. Words have meaning, especially when they come from powerful sources.
