But please – tell us more how President Trump tweeting a WWE gif is going to cause violence in America.
According to this, there is an online game called “Push Trump Off A Cliff Again” (cute name, guys) where players push President Trump off a cliff (I know – I couldn’t believe it either!)
A new online game encourages users to send a virtual President Trump to his death, either by sending him off a cliff, down a manhole, into a volcano or into the jaws of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.
The game, “Push Trump Off A Cliff Again,” instructs users to “Take out your frustrations with [the] President by pushing him off a virtual cliff, or into a virtual volcano.” A virtual Trump shouts out phrases including “Bye!” and “I’m really rich!” as he tumbles to his death.
Online users have played the game almost two million times, according to the site’s count, thanks in part to the efforts of Rosie O’Donnell and others on Twitter who have shared the game with their followers.
What’s more, the game has gotten attention because of celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell tweeting out its existence and encouraging people to play it –

One part of me kind of doesn’t care that this game exists – I’m sure that similar things have been made about various politicians throughout the years (though if one had been made about Barack Obama, we’d STILL be hearing about it). People are going to do these things on the internet and there’s not a whole lot you can do about it.
But given how much bellyaching we’ve had from CNN about that stupid wrestling gif, and the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) chastising Republicans for wanting to “kill people” with their health care bill. And there’s the matter of black-clad Antifa rioters burning and looting and assaulting people. Not to mention things like Kathy Griffin’s photoshoot and the Trump-as-Julius-Caesar play. Oh, and there was that little matter of a lunatic gunman actually going out and targeting Republican lawmakers for death during a baseball practice…
Yeah, I’m kind of getting sick of the whole “let’s joke about and/or attempt murder of politicians we don’t like for kicks and giggles” thing. If you don’t have a real argument to make against politics or other opinions you don’t like and all you can do is threaten violence, then whatever argument you are advocating for isn’t worth a damn thing.
Depicting death for a president or other politician you don’t like isn’t anything new, nor is it very clever. It’s not even that shocking anymore. If anything, it’s boring.
Get new material, guys. Might I suggest some actual facts about policy or current issues? Or is that just too hard for your narrow-minds to comprehend?
