RECKLESS RESISTANCE: Man Shoots Self Outside of White House

The outrageous vitriol of the radical left has reached fever peak in the age of President Trump, with a history of horrific and heinous hatred demonstrating itself in a myriad of misguided ways.

Of course, there are examples of this throughout our popular culture, with violence becoming synonymous with the left side of American politics.  Antifa-instigated riots in the streets of California.  Photo-realistic depictions of the President decapitated by CNN personality Kathy Griffin.  The attempted murder of a baseball field full of GOP congressmen.

Now, we can add yet another atrocity to the list after a man shot himself outside of the White House this afternoon.

“‘Secret Service personnel are responding to reports of a person who allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gun shot wound along the north fence line of @WhiteHouse,’ the Secret Service tweeted.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are at Mar-a-Lago in Florida. They are scheduled to return to Washington on Saturday night for the annual Gridiron Club Dinner.
‘We are aware of the incident,’ deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said. ‘The President has been briefed. I refer you to the Secret Service for any more information.’
 “The Secret Service tweeted an update on the situation moments later: ‘No other reported injuries related to the incident at @WhiteHouse.'”
Reactions from around social media were incredibly divided, of course, especially after learning that the man involved did in fact perish in the display.

To clarify, the President was not at the White House at the time of the incident, but, instead, was in Florida at Mar-a-Lago with his family.

Here we have one of the most sideways takes on the legacy of George W. Bush that we’ve ever seen, as the left continues to play divisional politics:

 

Surely we will be inundated with “hot takes” and “clever” opinions on this desperate act, with the left attempting to pin the strife of this clearly not well man onto the Trump presidency in one way or another.
