Departing White House press secretary Jen Psaki details threats against her and her family

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON – White House press secretary Jen Psaki says the hardest part of the job has not been the daily sparring with reporters but enduring threats against her and her family.

“I’ve had threats, I have had nasty letters, texts to me with my personal address, the names of my children,” Psaki told a group of reporters Thursday at a breakfast meeting sponsored by The Christian Science Monitor.

“It crosses lines, and you know, that’s when it becomes a little scary,” she said.

Public officials across the country have reported an increasing number of threats over the past couple of years, with targets ranging from members of Congress and governors to even school board members and health care workers. Some experts worry the threats could even jeopardize the running of this year's midterm elections.

4. the people doing this

were just waiting for the go-ahead from d. trump. How America allowed such a stupid, ignorant, dangerous individual like TPOSFG to ascend to this nation's highest political office is beyond my comprehension.

It ALL goes back to 24/7 propaganda. On military bases. In prisons. Where all the dangerous folks hang out.

6. How he was elected -- voters were conned into TFG. By the media, by his party and by himself.

Strange bedfellows, but it worked. And I really hate the argument that Hillary was a bad candidate. She wasn't. We (well, not me personally, but others) were bad voters.

7. Contrast the professionalism of Psaki with Senator Collins and the SC justices.

To my knowledge Psaki did not complain in public about threats, though I sure hope she got extra security. Collins called the police over some chalk on her sidewalk, while Alito and Kavanaugh demanded that protesters be barred because they should not be subjected to protests from people angry at them. And there you have it—supreme Court justices who don’t want to uphold the Constitution.

8. And yesterday the Administration

...was requesting protestors going to the homes of conservative members of SCOTUS to tone it down. This was in the WaPo and the comment section was long and a majority of commenters said "Screw that!".

The right has been intimidating the left with threats for a long time now. About time we counter that.

As for the homes of judges being sacrosanct, remember that the SCOTUS said that harrassment by Westboro Chuch crazies was just fine!!

17. With elected

Repukes asking for a firing squad to kill Fauchi. It’s been relentless threats of killing Congress members Senators, governors, teachers, medical professionals and need people from the white right wing especially since trump escalated down. Too chicken shit to walk down. Fuck these pearl clutching add holes. None of those people got special protection. My daughter’s ICU night shift had to be Ed courted to the cats after shift because of those GQP scum.

20. I'm old enough

To remember people cheering them on for their dedication when bodies were being stacked high in refrigerated trucks. That was before right wing hate and lies made them evil enemies of FreeDumb. That is on GQP and right wing. Like we need that to be in power, and next time, they will never leave. And thank you for showing concern for her. This is National Nurse Week. Show them some love and appreciation. Her hospital gave them a coupon for ice cream at the cafeteria, which is close at night, her shift. This hospital was bought by the same Corp that Rick Scott was CEO of that got busted for the largest Medicare fraud in history. And they are still in business, and after being indicted, Scott became Gov, then Senator and wet dreams of President to destroy SS, Medicare and Medicaid.
That is how nurses are appreciated in for profit health care hospitals. And we think Rick Scott gives a damn?
We are a lost democracy with no concern for those that give the most. Corruption and greed under the cloak of THEIR so called God.

13. The people who cross the line from peaceful protest need to face consequences.

it's a matter of time before something bad happens. The closer we get to elections, the more dangerous this becomes.

Not enforced when it's threats against Democrats?

21. "Public officials across the country have reported an increasing number of threats"

Hey MSN - any guess on what political ideology is behind something like 99.9% of these threats?

Any guesses why the GOP does not want that investigated?
