Threats against President Trump from celebrities with large followings:

Among the most troubesome social media threats, and insinuations of violence against President Trump are those from the media, celebrities and others with large audiences.

While they are “protected” by “freedom of the press” and can say their words are “art”, etc., the message they send is unambiguous and and leads to an increasingly volitile environment where it’s only a matter a time until one of their “followers” or “fans” pull the trigger for them.

Yes, they will have deniable plausibility to fall back on, but their words and “suggestions” will leave them complicit in the fullest.
