3. But..but...he now "regrets" his actions his attorney says

FUCK YOU!! All you violent Trump humpers have turned into wittle snowflakes when the knock on the door comes.


"He did it in support of former President (Donald) Trump, but regrets his actions. He has the support of his family, and a lot of the comments are viewed in context as really sort of misguided political hyperbole. Given the political divide these days, there is a lot of hyperbole,"

4. I would like to see anyone making death threats online to be charged. It is out of hand.

All the talk of violence. Since when did that become okay? It is not, and needs to be reined in.
