Benny Johnson, a reporter for The Daily Caller, interviewed leftist protesters outside the White House on Sunday, asking a very pointed and direct question: “If President Trump showed up at this march, what would you do?”
A few respondents replied that they would “beat his ass,” while a few others claimed that they would murder President Trump, clearly not only terroristic threatening, but a national security threat that should not be taken lightly or allowed to go unchallenged.
The threats of physical harm to the President of the United States, and especially the threats of murdering the President, should be dealt with harshly. Otherwise, the violent rhetoric from the left will continue to ratchet up until someone is in fact killed.
Because they haven't taken a shower in two weeks.

I do think these should be treated as serious threats, but these thuglets also seem like the kind of people that break down in tears of someone gets their Starbucks order wrong.
