He should not have said that…
George Lopez is backtracking on his comments about accepting “a bounty to assassinate President Donald Trump.”
Chicano Worldstar posted, “[Iranian] authorities have put a bounty on American President Donald Trump’s head during the televised funeral of General [Qasem Soleimani] after he was assassinated last week. What are your thoughts?” To which Lopez responded by saying, “We’ll do it for half.”
The threat became viral on the internet causing many to call for George Lopez’s arrest which made him say that his comment was “a joke.” His “joke” caught the attention of the Secret Service, and they responded with, “The Secret Service is aware of the [post] made by Mr. Lopez. The Secret Service takes all threats against the President and or any of our protectees seriously, and as a matter of practice, we do not comment on matters involving protective intelligence.”
Obviously Lopez had to backtrack on what he said, especially being in the sights of the Secret Service. Read the rest of the story here.
