Members of the Secret Service have virtually written a blank check for anything up to and including their lives in order to protect the President of the United States. Unfortunately for one smug agent who personally threatened Donald Trump, she would only realize how big of a mistake she’d made as she saw what was coming for her next.
There’s no arguing that those in the Secret Service are some of the most dedicated, well trained, and honorable people that society has to officer. However, like all things, sometimes there’s a rotten apple that risks spoiling the whole bunch.
Proving just that is Kerry O’Grady, the special agent in charge of the Secret Service’s Denver district, who recently took to social media to personally threaten Trump:

In one Facebook post O’Grady wrote at 11:07 p.m. on a Sunday in October, she endorsed Hillary Clinton and said she would endure “jail time” rather than “taking a bullet” for what she regarded as a “disaster” for America.

O’Grady also went on to declare her knowledge of and intent to break the law by speaking about the Hatch Act, which bars people in her position from engaging in certain political activities. “As a public servant for nearly 23 years, I struggle not to violate the Hatch Act. So I keep quiet and skirt the median,” she wrote. “To do otherwise can be a criminal offense for those in my position. Despite the fact that I am expected to take a bullet for both sides.”
She continued, “But this world has changed and I have changed. And I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country and the strong and amazing women and minorities who reside here,” adding, “Hatch Act be damned. I am with Her.”
Unfortunately for her, things just took a serious turn as O’Grady’s posts triggered at least one complaint to the office that oversees investigations into Secret Service misbehavior. Of course, as she cited the law and explained that she willingly broke it, one can only imagine how harsh her punishment will be. Then again, whatever stems from that will likely pale in comparison to what comes from her direct threat to Trump.
Either way, things are far from over as, if that wasn’t bad enough, now the America people are coming for her. The thing liberals need to understand is that when you say stupid stuff like this, you’re not just pissing off one person – you’re pissing off half the country.

For that, she will surely pay, but it goes without saying that a woman not willing to lay down her life for the president, whoever may be in the position at the time, she swore to protect, then what right does she have in that job? The answer is none – and she’s about to find that out the hard way. My guess is, O’Grady isn’t going to like that “action” headed her way.
