A D-list comic and former CNN New Year’s host offers our president’s bloodied head on social media. A taxpayer funded acting group in New York City receives standing ovations for a play depicting a Caesar-like assassination of the leader of the free world.

This maniac who shot up a baseball field full of congressman could have been a fawning guest on “The View” when Whoopi Goldberg equated Christians to the Taliban.
