Return of the Mummy….and her sidekick! Actually I do believe that making such comments is not only stupid and irresponsible, but illegal – calling for the assassination of the President. Of course, if that were said during Obung’s tenure then the looney left would’ve gone ballistic. These 2 old bags are ready for the grave – exit gracefully!
My opinion is that wealthy Broadway stars are of no actual value to society. They don’t do anything for anyone.
MarkR. Katzman lol not illegal she is completely free to voice her right opinion lol
I welcome the comments. It reaffirms my belief that the left is incapable of governance and brings normal people who have been fence-sitters for so long into the fold. Shout Impeachment from the rooftops, beg for assassinations, long for the days of the Bush/Obama Recession–while the right sweeps further and deeper into power. Thank you, loons! Your mouth–the gift that keeps on giving.
Freedom of speech💁🏾
wow…so if someone threatened your life or the life of someone you love, that would be ok? Are you insane?
This is how you know presidents are selected and not elected. When the crazy left can talk about assassinating the current president and the government doesn’t care. You’re all being played. Your government doesn’t care about you.
If someone on the right said this about Hillary or obama, it would be all over the news and the left would throw a fit over it.
William Keltner I didn’t like Bush or Obama, but I’d never say anything like that. It’s horrifying how hateful people have become. This is not ok.
They’d character assassinate whoever said it, camp out at their residence and get dirt from neighbors and start rioting in Ferguson and Baltimore all over again. It would be the same talking point for the next 2 years just like the Russian collusion bullshit. Hillary gave the Russians a do over button, sold them Uranium and obama transmitted information to Vladimir because after his next election he’d have more flexibility. Collusion much? Carole Cook will get a free pass because no one knows who she is anyways, plus old and senile. Johnny Depp can say basically the same thing about Trump and get away with it because he is Disney’s darling.
William Keltner just like far right is a wretched monstrosity, but the true far right barely exists in America. Now a days anyone that wants secure borders and jobs for americans first is considered a monstrous nazi by the established media, pop culture, demos and RINOs. A real liberal isn’t a far leftist, that’s a communist.
Thank god for the 2A, so if anything happens to the President, we know who to find.
OMG look at her EYES.
Did she just consume all her CRACK before retiring as crypt keeper
She actually probably consumes baby blood
Freedie Kruger—-no, she’s OUT of crack as DJT has shut off their supply and now they have to fly international to get their “Dave Chappele” on.
of course she knows who John Wilkes Booth was,,, she went to school with him
Oh, come ON! He wasn’t even born yet when she was in school!
Well played, sir.
selfan4evr – LOL!
The “Joker” escaped she needs to leave the country.
He was probably her previous lover
I think you need to aim for her head, she is clearly and undead person
Kevin Johnson—-look closely. She already has several gaping wounds in her head.
She’s beyond zombie level and even video game creators will be using her likeness in their next animated opening scenes.
LEO around the country will be using her picture on targets so as to not involve or infuriate living “models”.
She is a dried-up shell of human trying to get another 15 minutes of fame. It says so much about the intelligence level of the people she was speaking to when her husband had to explain to them who John Wilkes Booth was and what he did. Left = Idiots
to get 15 minutes of fame threatening the life of a person is just sick…her husband was right there too, just as sick
I can deal with Idiots, these people are pure evil
Wow, just wow. WTF is wrong with people!!! The loving & tolerant left showing, just how intolerant and hateful they truly are. THIS is what’s wrong with America.
we gotta stand up constantly to these freaks.
vote them all out. and yes she should go to jail…
Its uneasy as a retired Marine to hear how simply anyone wishes death on a Pres. Not again ever, should a Pres. be killed
Semper Fi …marine …a big UHH rahh to you from a now 65 yr old Couthouse bay Marine .
Ty Time Travel, my brother. Semper FI Mac
Mount up! It’s time to ride.
Go change your depends granny
prob smells like piss all over too
Good to know she’ll be dead soon.
Look out your window
I’m looking for another Charles Manson…who delights in murdering actresses!
John Wilks Booth was a southern Democrat just like this lady and he killed the republican president (Lincoln) because Booth wanted slavery to continue.
Wolf Pro1—-and killed a republican president over essentially the desire to continue to have…..
History is truly repeating itself. The blacks leaving in droves have it right in their slang – leaving the Democratic plantation.
Dems sure have terrible heroes…
And todays democrats still support slavery, just in a different form.
I heard of John Wilkes Booth, but who is this old bag lady, Carol Kook? Looks like she might have known John Wilkes Booth personally, but hiring or provoking an assassin is criminal and she should be locked up with HilLIARy.
being 94, she is fairly close to that possibility
It’s sad that Carole Cook is so far gone that she doesn’t see that she’s revealed her twisted, hate-filled, black heart. (Out of the heart, the mouth speaks.)
senile, prob dementia at this point
This old hag should be investigated by the Secret Service. I am sick and tired of the Celebrities all calling for our Presidents demise. Its time they show some balls and arrest and prosecute these F’ed up Az Holes then lock them up for 18 months
No no no…Have mercy on the Secret Service.
I mean think of the Poor Bastard that would have to Cavity search Methuselah’s wife.
What’s creepy is they think it’s so clever – it’s a corny joke from an old hag
So,…she supports gun violence?…..Where is the Liberal Outrage?……Hypocrites!
That old wrinkled up bag of powder is closer to death than Trump! So tired of the Democrats and their hateful remarks about our great President.
+Keshia Wilis he is great, people like you are either to blind or dumb to see it, Trump is putting this country back to its former glory.
Honey, please walk towards the light.
You tube has no problem with violent hate speach……as long as it’s a liberal spewing the hate!
+mzw meathook: I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed. It’s a disgrace.
John Wilkes Booth your a slayer fan?? well damn i guess i have mild respect for you now…
