The founder and CEO of guitar amplifier maker Magnatone has apologized for a Facebook message about the potential assassination of President Donald Trump.
In his Facebook post yesterday, Ted Kornblum apparently wrote the following: "Rest easy people, it'll take only 100 days till Trump gets a bullet in the head!"
Kornblum reportedly followed up that message by posting what appears to be an image of Travis Bickle, the political assassin portrayed by Robert De Niro in the iconic movie Taxi Driver next to Trump.
Emotions are still running high almost three months after Donald Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election, an outcome that most media organizations and political pollsters and pundits insisted never would happen. Some political observers maintain that, in general, the media echo chamber or groupthink that Trump rival Hillary Clinton was a lock for the presidency might be partially responsible for at least some of the post-election incivility by those on the left of the ideological spectrum.
Parenthetically, according to PJ Media, left-wing billionaire George Soros is bankrolling some of the current airport protests as well as legal challenges to Trump's temporary travel ban executive order that affects seven Middle Eastern countries.
