We hear the term “dog whistle” a lot these days, and for good reason; the liberal left is taking every anti-Trump sentiment that they hear literally.
Some have called it “Trump Derangement Syndrome”, while others liken it to a mass hysteria of the political variety. In either case, the radical left seems hellbent on removing President Trump from office…one way or another.
The most striking example of this secret code coming to life occurred back in 2017 when actress and comedian Kathy Griffin participated in a gruesome photoshoot in which she proudly held a photorealistic likeness of President Trump’s severed head. The image was meant to invoke radical Islamic terrorists and their beheading of American dissidents.
Just two weeks later to the day, the radical left responded when James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on the entire GOP charity baseball team, severely wounding Louisiana Rep Steve Scalise before being killed by Capitol Police.
Now, another of Hollywood’s leading ladies is calling for violence against the President.
He actually looks better here! Maybe someone in his camp can gently give him a shiv. I mean, shove. https://t.co/GDdrF3Zfry

This call for assassination came in response to President Trump’s tweet calling Midler a “washed up psycho” – a claim that seems all but bolstered by her intention of violence against the sitting President.
Twitter users were quick to tag the Secret Service in their responses to Midler, while also imploring the social media platform itself to ban Midler for her hate speech.
