Trump Supporter Arrested For Death Threats To The Globe On The Same Day POTUS Calls Press The ‘Enemy’

693

Once again this morning, Donald Trump unleashed a series of tweets to blast networks that are critical of his scandal-plagued presidency* and called the press the “enemy of the people.” A California man agrees with his president* and was charged on Thursday with making threats against The Boston Globe. 68-year-old Robert Chain of Encino, Calfornia was arrested for death threats made against employees at the Globe which included calling the paper “the enemy of the people” in multiple phone calls. Chain placed the calls between Aug. 10 and Aug. 22, according to the Washington Post.

The transcript of one of the calls that the FBI released is disturbing, with Chain threatening to “shoot you in the f*cking head.”

“You’re the enemy of the people, and we’re going to kill every f*cking one of you,” he said, according to the transcript.

“Still there faggot?” he continued. “Alright, why, you going to trace my call? What are you going to do motherf*cker? You ain’t going to do sh*t. I’m going to shoot you in the f*cking head, later today at 4 o’clock.”

Just this morning, Trump tweeted that the press is the “enemy of the people.”

“I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is,” Trump said after a series of tweets. “Truth doesn’t matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People!”

I ran a quick background check on Chain and aside from financial judgments against him and a bankruptcy filing in the past, it doesn’t show that he has a criminal record. Well, he does now.
