Breaking a major social taboo, elements of the left have openly put a target on a sitting president and too many mainstream Democrats have been silent.
Think Kathy Griffin’s severed head. Think Madonna telling a rally she thinks about blowing up the White House. Think Shakespeare in the Park using a Trump stand-in for Julius Caesar — and the audience loving the blood lust.
Did a single leading Democrat denounce any of these outrages as dangerous incitement?
In the last month celebrities from Bill Maher to Cher have wished the worst, most vile things on the current president.
Maher hoped First Lady Melania Trump would divorce her husband. Singer/actress Cher wanted to see Trump impeached, “locked up” and assaulted in prison.
Author Fran Lebowitz claimed “impeachment” was just the “beginning of what he deserves” as she fantasized that Trump would be turned “over to the Saudis” to be tortured to death.

CBS crime drama The Good Fight tweeted an image on Friday from a recent episode, entitled, “The One Where Diane Joins the Resistance.” The image showed a character pointing to a list of “target words” that included the phrases “Assassinate President Trump” and “Eliminate Mar-a-Lago.” The tweet, which has since been deleted, sparked backlash among Twitter users, many of whom reported CBS to the Secret Service...
“Threatening the President of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making ‘any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President’” said one Twitter user in a reply to the CBS account.

The Denver Post published a letter to the editor suggesting President Donald Trump should be executed for treason.
The letter criticized the president and Sen. Cory Gardner (R., Colo.) following Trump's summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, and said Soviet spies Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who passed atomic bomb secrets to Moscow, were executed for "far less."...
Gagnon then compared Trump to the Rosenbergs, who were tried and put to death for espionage in 1953. She said there are "many more actions" that should be taken against Trump.
"If it walks like a traitor, and talks like a traitor, and acts like a traitor … it is a traitor," Gagnon said. "Ethel and Julius Rosenberg were executed on a basis of far less evidence than is had on Trump and many in his administration."

Former ESPN host and current The Atlantic writer Jemele Hill may be getting a visit from the Secret Service soon as she disgustingly joked about killing Donald Trump during last night’s State of the Union Address.
On Tuesday night, Hill tweeted that Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was in attendance at the SOTU, should yell out “GETCHO HAND OUT MY POCKET.”
That statement is a reference to what one of Malcolm X’s assassins yelled out before they killed the 1960s civil rights leader.

Snoop Dogg’s new video depicting a “mock-assassination” of President Donald Trump is disturbing enough. But it’s part of a dangerous trend of the left fantasizing about the death or assassination of presidents they oppose -- especially Trump.
It’s terrifying to think the left has devolved from lamenting the JFK assassination to seeing the death of Trump as either political theater or wishful thinking.

Puopolo reportedly admitted to posting a video to Twitter, saying: 'This is the 16th of January 2017, I will be at the review/ inauguration and I will kill President Trump, President elect Trump today.'

CNN host Anthony Bourdain joked in an interview with TMZ that he would poison President Trump if given the opportunity to cook for him and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. “If Trump and Kim Jong-un were going to have a bit of a summit to try and mend relations and they wanted you to cater, what would you serve?” asked a TMZ reporter.
“Hemlock," Bourdain deadpanned.
Hemlock is defined as "a drug or lethal drink prepared from the poison hemlock" that has been used as an execution method.
"Donald Trump and his victory have given a hope in the American people - the hope that he would be killed even before his inauguration."
"If you’re going to kill a hog, you have to jump down in the mud sometimes to get him."
