Sadly, a lot of individuals threaten Donald Trump on the internet, but (as far as we know) very few try to act out these feelings.
One story that has been made public is particularly interesting, because it involves a member of a group Trump has singled out for criticism during his campaign — but even that fact comes with a twist.
A British man has been sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison over his attempt to grab a gun in a bid to kill Donald Trump.
Michael Sandford, 20, pleaded guilty in September to being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting an official function.
He was accused of grabbing a policeman’s gun at a rally in Las Vegas in order to shoot at the candidate.
It sounds like the young man suffers from serious problems that affected his judgement. According to his lawyers and family, he is “autistic and suffers seizures and obsession-compulsion anxiety.”
Weirdly, Sandford had been wandering around the U.S. since 2015, and at the time of his arrest, he was homeless, having overstayed his visa.
Maybe he will finally get the help he needs.
