For many of us living and breathing in this nation today, the level of pure political petulance we’ve been forced to endure of downright obscene.
It feels filthy, it really does. It feels as though you could scrape the muck of the muckrakers off of your skin with your fingernails. Every word, every sentence in the legacy media of the left comes with its own stank; it’s own crud. You know that these opinions are tainted, dirty, but you still have to hear them in order to make sense of it all.
The media is no less the swamp than “the swamp” itself is, and we hardly ever leave the depths of that echoing bayou in the same condition as we entered.
Now, from the Big Apple – a place as swampy as any on earth – the left has risen again, this time in the form of a legendary Broadway actress calling for the conjuring of the spirit of John Wilkes Booth.
Broadway legend Carole Cook implied she wants to see President Trump get assassinated, asking “Where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?” when approached by a TMZ cameraman in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
The 94-year-old Cook’s comment delighted her husband, who quickly reminded viewers that John Wilkes Booth killed a president, who was obviously Abraham Lincoln.
Wilkes Booth assassinated Lincoln at Ford’s Theater in Washington D.C. in 1865.
“Where is he when you need him?” Cook asked again before someone off camera asked, “So we need to kill President Trump?”
“Why not?” Cook asked “Now, will that get me in trouble? Will I be on an enemy’s list? My god I hope so… just keep me out of jail.”
This sort of rhetoric has shockingly become commonplace in America today, with a number of celebrities openly fantasizing about just such as act.
