A Democrat lawmaker from the state of Maine took to social media to rant about his burning hatred for President Donald Trump, but he took his little charade a step too far. After calling the Commander-in-Chief a number of vile things, including a “p*ssy,” and using terms that could easily be interpreted as death threats, the lawmaker’s rant backfired big time when the wrong person found out.
In an exchange on Facebook, State Rep. Scott Hamann used profanity and explicit language to describe Trump and his supporters.
“Trump is a half term president, at most, especially if I ever get within 10 feet of that p*ssy,” Hamann wrote on Facebook. Hamann accused Trump of being “anti-American,” and an “admitted rapist” who was “installed by the Russians.” Hamann did not reserve all of his vitriol for Trump, adding of the president’s supporters, “I just can’t deal with you ignorant people anymore.”[Source: Daily Caller]
After preaching his hatred for Trump, Hamann went on to praise former President Barack Obama, saying he “ran quite possibly the classiest 2 term presidency in US history.” He must have been in a different country than the rest of us for the last eight years, or he is simply delusional.
Obviously, his post infuriated a lot of people. One Facebook user even called Hamann out, writing, “Scott Hamann you plan to kill the President?” Of course, there have been no further comments or responses from the cowardly lawmaker, probably because he knows the hot water he is in after playing keyboard warrior against the President of the United States.
The Secret Service has been made aware of the threats Hamann made, but it has not been mentioned if an investigation has been started regarding the situation. However, someone else heard about it, and they are definitely taking an interest in what he had to say.
As usually happens with stupid, regrettable posts on the internet, it has since been taken down by Scott Hamann, but nothing is ever truly deleted once it’s put on the internet. There are screen grabs of the Representative’s rant, and they got forwarded to just the right person.
Keith Hanson, who hosts both “First Look” and “The Keith Hanson Show” on Fox News, shared the inappropriate rant not only with his network but with Hamann’s bosses over at the statewide hunger relief organization Good Shepard Food Bank, where Hamann is a program director.
When Hamann found out about Hanson contacting his employer, it triggered him yet again, but this time, he shot himself in the foot by subconsciously admitting it was him who posted the comments to begin with, when he insisted it was not him who posted it.
“Hi Keith. Contacting my employer over a Facebook comment I made to an old friend? I’m sorry if the truth triggered you so much that you felt it was a good idea to send a screenshot to my employer,” Hamann messaged Hanson. “’Profanity-laden’?? Are you kidding me? The only swear words in the image you posted were a**, pr*cks, and Trump. Too much for a snowflake, then don’t read comments between me and my childhood friend.” Hamann added, “if anything negative comes from your attack on my employment, my attorney will be in touch. Cease and desist.” [Source: Fox News]
That sounds like yet another threat to me. It is a little surprising that such hate and violence would come from a government official, but never underestimate the foul mouth of a liberal snowflake.
There was still no apology on Hamann’s part until the Republican Party of Maine posted his comments on the GOP Twitter page. Then, finally, the Maine State House Majority Office released his pathetic apology statement.
“While the tone of the post was born out of frustration with the vile language currently surrounding politics, I should not have responded with the same language,” Hamman said in a statement. “This is not language I typically use, it does not reflect my personal values, and while misguided, it was intended to make a visceral point about the developing political discourse in America.”
Hamann should understand that when you get elected to be the voice of the people, you speak on behalf of them, not your narrow-minded self. He has a huge responsibility to be representing the people to the best of his ability, but that is obviously too big of a task for such a little guy. He should be forced to resign and stay out of D.C. after threatening the life of our president. This type of threat would have been completely unacceptable if a Republican Representative had said anything similar to Barack Obama under his administration.
