This is why liberals get no respect from normal, everyday people.
Matt Harrigan is (was?) CEO of PacketSled, a California tech company, which automatically makes him a liberal. He is now under federal investigation for threatening to assassinate President-elect Donald Trump with a sniper rifle and has been placed on administrative leave by the company, which also posted this statement:
PacketSled takes recent comments made by our CEO, seriously. Once we were made aware of these comments, we immediately reported this information to the secret service and will cooperate fully with any inquiries. These comments do not reflect the views or opinions of PacketSled, its employees, investors or partners. Our CEO has been placed on administrative leave.
Harrigan for his part is saying it was all a big joke. When he tweeted out “I’m going to kill the President. Elect,” it was all in good-natured fun. Which is why he appears to have deleted that post as well as this one:
Nope, getting a sniper rifle and perching where it counts. Find a bedroom in the White House that suits you motherf*cker. I’ll find you. [Profanity in original redacted.]
His latest tweets suggest not only that his threats were intended humorously but that they were taken out of context:
My humble apologies that a flawed joke has become public/out of context. My poor judgement does not represent the views of @packetsled …

No doubt the federal authorities will be interested in learning more about the context that renders Harrigan’s Twitter messages harmless.
