Tom Arnold, the man best known for once being Roseanne Barr’s husband, posted a tweet taunting President Trump over his rally in Dallas and warning him of a JFK-Esque assassination attempt.
The President held a rally described by Fox News as ‘enthusiastic’ and having a “massive crowd of approximately 30,000.”
Trump tweeted a video of that same crowd waiting to get in.
“Just arrived at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas,” he wrote. “Will be out shortly as we wait for more of you to get in!”
This apparently triggered Arnold.
“Don’t get too cocky traitor,” the failed comedian wrote. “They showed up for JFK too.”
Arnold’s tweet has since been removed by Twitter for violating their rules, a rarity by the social media platform when it comes to liberal D-List celebrities spouting unhinged threats.
Tagging @SecretService – Tom Arnold makes a JFK/Dallas reference

Arnold is a Certifiable Lunatic
Think of Arnold as a less sane version of Randy Quaid at this point in his career.
We’d be surprised if the Secret Service wasn’t involved in taking a look at the celebrity yet again over what could easily be construed as a veiled threat against the President. Or at least an incitement to violence for his followers.
It wouldn’t be the first time Secret Service paid him a visit either. In November of 2018, the ‘Nine Months’ actor reported that agents had visited his house after he tweeted a challenge to engage President Trump in a fight.
“I say put up or shut up @realDonaldTrump Me vs You. For America,” Arnold tweeted. “First body slam wins. Any Rally. Any Time.”

Arnold’s Infatuation With the Trumps
Aside from tweeting messages challenging the President of the United States to a fight or threatening him with assassination, Arnold has been consumed with Trump for quite some time.
Last year, VICE News released a feature called “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes” hosted by – you guessed it – Tom Arnold.
He also suggested at one point a collaboration which failed miserably, in which he and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen were going to ‘take down’ the President.
“This dude has all the tapes — this dude has everything,” Arnold told NBC News. “I say to Michael, ‘Guess what? We’re taking Trump down together.’”
It would appear he didn’t have ALL the tapes, since Trump is still standing and Cohen is currently incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Otisville, New York.
In an interview with @michaeljknowles, Tom Arnold becomes unhinged claiming Trump is a “Russian assett.”
When asked to cite evidence of a Trump-Russia collusion, Arnold draws a blank.

Arnold, of course, isn’t the only celebrity to voice actionable threats against President Trump.
Since he took office, Trump has been a constant target of liberal threats to violence. There was Madonna wanting to blow up the White House. And Kathy Griffin staging a beheading. And there was Johnny Depp saying he should assassinate the President.

Sometimes, those violent sentiments were followed by actions specifically targeting the President.
