Secret Service Pays A Visit To Kentucky Woman After She Calls For Trump's Assassination

The political environment is unbelievably toxic these days, and one gander at the news or social media tells you all you need to know. The 2016 presidential election produced a surprising result, and there are many folks out there that still can’t come to terms with it.

As a result, some of those folks go way too far when they express their angst. We’re not just talking about those that consistently light their hair on fire to draw attention to how darn upset they are about things either.

There are some people that really cross the line while expressing their angst. Heather Lowrey of Louisville, Kentucky recently did that, and we can only imagine that she’s now coming to terms with the wisdom of her actions.

As AWM shares, she suggested that President Donald Trump should be assassinated, and that prompted a visit from the Secret Service.

It’s unclear exactly what led Lowrey to go off the rails, but her since-deleted post on social media left no question about what she was suggesting.

“If someone was cruel enough to assassinate MLK, maybe someone will be kind enough to assassinate Trump. #bekind #trump #lovetrumpshate,” she wrote.

The irony of including the word ‘love’ in a post that called for the death of another was apparently lost on Lowrey, but the seriousness of what she had to say was not lost on the Secret Service. After they became aware of the post, they immediately launched an investigation and paid her a visit.

“Any time threatening communications like that are made, we always conduct an investigation,” a spokesperson explained.

The story gained a ton of traction in the local media, and her employers would subsequently cut ties with her.

“Please, know that we, at Va Va Vixens, do not condone the behavior of Heather Lowrey. She was dismissed the moment we were informed of this incident," read a statement from VaVa Vixens, a Louisville-based burlesque and variety troupe.

"We have a zero tolerance policy for such. It’s no secret that we are in the midst of a divided nation.”

“With so much hate and anger in the world, our hope is to be a sanctuary that welcomes all walks of life with open arms. We do not condone hate by any party and will not partake in it," they said.

"We in no way support negative behavior or malicious intent from anyone.”

“Heather Lowrey is no longer contracted with the Travis Moody Agency. The Travis Moody Agency, its agents and its staff do not share the same views, nor opinions as Heather Lowrey,” read a statement from the insurance agency she was previously employed with.

“We have a zero tolerance policy and would never condone this behavior.”

The Secret Service informed the local media that the investigation is ongoing, but it’s unclear if any charges will be filed against her. We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out, but Lowrey has forever attached a gigantic label to herself.

There’s absolutely no excuse for her to post what she did, so it’s pretty tough to have anything resembling sympathy for her. Perhaps she will now realize that she’s taken her political beliefs to incredibly unnecessary levels in the wake of all of the damage she has caused for herself.
