A BBC Presenter Gets Immediate Blowback After Proposing That Former President Trump Be Murdered

(NewsReady.com) – The Supreme Court ruled that presidents have immunity from prosecution for the official acts they carry out while in office. The justices made it clear that not everything a president does is official and they aren’t immune from prosecution for personal acts. That didn’t stop the Left from melting down. A BBC reporter received immediate blowback for posting a horrible joke.

After the SCOTUS decision was made public, Radio 4 host David Aaronovitch posted a message on X (formerly Twitter) that said if he were President Joe Biden, he would “hurry up” and murder former President Donald Trump “on the basis that he is a threat to America’s security.”

The 69-year-old BBC presenter faced immediate blowback for the post. Critics attacked him for suggesting the Republican nominee for president should be killed. They also said that he broke the BBC’s rules by showing he was biased.

Aaronovitch deleted the message about 90 minutes later and claimed that there was a “far right pile on” that suggested his post was “an incitement to violence” but claimed it was “plainly a satire.” He went on to say that it gave him a “map of some of the daftest people on the internet.”

In America, Democrats raged after the Supreme Court issued the ruling. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared that she was going to introduce articles of impeachment against the conservative justices. Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) called the decision a “travesty” and said it would be “the most dangerous judicial opinion” from the high court in generations.

Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) called it a “dark day for American democracy.” Multiple liberal lawmakers called the impartiality of the court into question.

The justices didn’t rule on the question of whether Trump was immune from the specific acts alleged in the criminal cases against him. They are expected to revisit that down the road after the case makes its way through the lower courts. Experts believe that could take years.

BBC has not fired Aaronovitch for suggesting Biden should murder Trump.
