Another Lefty Calls for Trump’s Death – Then Backpedals

Reminiscent of  disgraced comedian Kathy Griffin’s posing with an apparently severed head of President Trump, liberal author Fran Lebowitz went to the extreme during a recent appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” suggesting that President Trump should not only be impeached but killed.

Lebowitz began by saying she felt “plagued” by Trump’s presidency and “shocked” by what she claimed was criminal behavior by Attorney General William Barr over his handling of the Mueller report.

But when she was asked by Maher about impeachment, Lebowitz did not think that was enough punishment for the president, who BTW, has not been charged with any crimes.

“Certainly, he deserves to be impeached. I mean, impeachment is just the beginning of what he deserves. Not even scratching the surface of what he deserves,” Lebowitz said. “Whenever I think about this and what he really deserves, I think, ‘We should turn him over to the Saudis, you know, his buddies. The same Saudis who got rid of that reporter, you know. Maybe they can do the same for him.'”

Her remarks, which drew some applause from Maher’s studio audience in Los Angeles, was in reference to the 2018 murder of Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi, who is believed to have been tortured and dismembered with a bone saw, purportedly under the orders of the Saudi government.

Lebowitz Walks Back Talk of “Khashoggi Treatment For Trump

However, possibly realizing the career damaging implications of her statement, later on, during the show’s “Overtime” segment however, Lebowitz said the “Real Time” producers told her that her remarks were getting blowback on social media, which prompted her to walk them back.

“I saw your face when I said it. I didn’t even realize that I said it. I had twelve cups of coffee,” Lebowitz told Maher. “I regret saying it.”

During the after-show discussion, Maher told the panel, “I mean, it’s a live show. You really don’t want to see the president dismembered by the Saudis. I don’t like Donald Trump either. … but no matter who the president is, we don’t want physical harm.”

“I did not mean that and I regret saying it. I regret that everyone misinterpreted it because they misinterpret everything,” Lebowitz added.

The situation seemed reminiscent of the May 2017 controversy surrounding comedian Kathy Griffin, who posed for a photo while holding a fake head of Trump, dripping with fake blood, as if the president had been beheaded.

The photo drew scorn from around the world, and Griffin lost work as a result, including an annual New Year’s Eve gig on CNN.

    I am so sick and tired of people calling for impeachment and then even go as far as to say he should be murdered. Where are the secret service at. These people should be in jail.

    People who say things like this are targeting President Trump and inciting harm and even death to the President. There are those out there who are crazy enough to do such a thing. Giffin and Lebowitz should be arrested and put in prison for inciting violence and/or death against President Trump. You can’t back pedal and tell me they didn’t mean what they said.
