Professor In Serious Hot Water After Tweeting Threat To Trump

A professor at Fresno State is being investigated by federal authorities after tweeting that 'Trump must hang'. The professor has been busy tweeting a number of radical comments. Breitbart news reported on it, and the professor says angry letters and death threats have been pouring in.

Lars Maischak thought he was safe venting his feelings about the president, considering he had such a small Twitter following. Attention was brought to his radical comments by the conservative media outlet, Breitbart, when he tweeted, "To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better. #TheResistance #DeathToFascism."

The comment was linked to an article that compares President Donald Trump to Hitler, Lenin and other dictators. Apparently, they, too, pushed back at the media and said the news was fake.

Of course, anyone who actually has followed the media over the last year is aware of how biased the coverage against Trump tends to be, so Trump's complaints are valid. However, the professor and other Trump haters prefer to overlook the facts (much like the mainstream media these days).

"Don't tell me to 'obey the Law.' 'The Law' in this country is one part Racism, one part Class Oppression, all Capitalism. #TheResistance," read a previous tweet by Maischak.

The feds have swooped in after complaints came in about Maischak threatening the president's life. He's since apologized for his comments. "It was never my intent to harm anyone, nor to encourage others to harm anyone. My statements each represent the end point of a dark train of thought triggered by my despair over the actions of the present U.S. government," he said.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Maischak is fully cooperating with the investigation. He's also deleted his Twitter account in hopes it will 'preclude the possibility that anyone reading my statements in the future would take them as encouragement to act violently or unlawfully.'
