Hustler magazine distributes disturbing Christmas card depicting assassination of Trump
The left loves to accuse Trump of being full of hatred and inciting his followers to violence, but some of the most disturbing examples of those very things come from the left almost every day.
The most recent and egregious example comes from the pornographic magazine, Hustler, in which Donald Trump has been depicted as being assassinated in a Christmas card sent out to members of Congress.
The disturbing “Christmas card” was first reported by Politico. A correspondent for the outlet confirmed that Hustler claimed responsibility for the card.
The Washington Examiner reports:
The card showed the smiling shooter holding a smoking handgun up in the air as onlookers smiled and cheered over Trump’s bleeding corpse. The back of the card shows the shooter with a speech bubble next to him that reads: “I just shot Donald Trump on Fifth Avenue and no one arrested me.”
The quote is a reference to Trump’s infamous statement in early 2016, in which he claimed, “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters, OK?”
The card was sent to an unknown number of Congress members, including Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA).
Johnson tweeted a condemnation of the card along with the image, saying, “Here’s all you need to know about the radical Left […] Just imagine if a conservative had distributed such a disgusting and hateful piece about a Democrat. I hope this will be investigated by the [Secret Service].”
