Democratic State Representative Scott Hamann of Maine unleashed an expletive-laden and violent anti-Trump Facebook rant Tuesday, in which he directly threatened President Donald Trump’s safety.
“It’s not only Trump supporters who can talk like complete a**holes,” Hamman wrote. “As long as that’s what’s coming out of that side, then I’ll match you dumb f**ks word for word. Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p***y,” wrote Hamman.
The rant quickly drew condemnation from Maine Republicans.
“Rep. Hamann’s comments demonstrate that he has joined the ranks of the radicalized in the Democrat Party. After these public comments, including a threat on President Trump’s life, House Speaker Sara Gideon should demand his resignation,” Jason Savage, executive director of the Maine GOP, told LifeZette. “The good people of his district and across Maine deserve better than violent threats against our Commander in Chief.”
The rant included several insults hurled at supporters of the president and the popular Democratic conspiracy theory that Russians were solely responsible for Trump’s election.
As reported above, Sen. Erst was subject to threats on her life within the past week.
An Omaha man has been arrested on suspicion of making threats against Republican U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa.
Robert William Simet, 64, was arrested Friday morning. The FBI believes Simet made several statements to employees at Loess Hills Harley Davidson that were “threatening in nature” to Senator Ernst.
The supposed threats were made last Wednesday.
Loess Hills Harley Davidson was scheduled to host an event over the weekend where Ernst was expected to speak.
According to court records, Simet told employees he thought Ernst was part of ISIS, and “everyone in the government needs to be killed off” specifically, he said all congress members should be killed.
