An enraged Rachel Maddow fan reportedly made numerous death threats to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the head of the Environmental Protection Agency; sparking an FBI investigation after the individual posted their hateful comments on social media.
According to the case report released by the EPA’s Office of Inspector General, titled “Twitter Threat to Murder Administrator Pruitt and Senator Mitch McConnell,” an unidentified suspect admitted to law enforcement that he or she was “drinking” while watching a repeat of ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ when they decided to post the incendiary comments.
The individual “admitted to posting the tweets in question regarding Senator McConnell and Administrator Pruitt on April 8, 2017,” adding the suspect was “drinking while watching the Rachel Maddow show and posted the tweets as a flippant comment, not realizing they would be considered a threat.”
Maddow and other liberal hosts, including late-night television comedians, found themselves in the center of a media firestorm throughout the first year of President Trump’s first term in office.
Hollywood celebrities and media elites -such as Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Kimmel, Johnny Depp, and others- routinely incite violence against President Trump and those closest to him. Depp made global headlines last summer when he threatened to kill President Trump during a UK music festival.
