Wacko Leftists Asks ISIS To Bomb Trump Tower In Istanbul
Malcom Nance, an ex-intelligence official and frequent guest on MSNBC, made a controversial tweet on Tuesday that he since deleted. His tweet called for the Islamic State group to bomb one of President Donald Trump’s buildings in Istanbul, and it has rightfully put him in extremely hot water.
The Washington Free Beacon was one of the first to break the story in which Nance, a former intelligence officer who worked in Iraq and Afghanistan, responded to a tweet about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s win over the weekend.
The author of that first tweet, Dustin Giebel, lamented the fact that President Donald Trump reportedly called Erdoğan to congratulate him on his win and opined that the win was motivated by personal, not national, interest.
“Trump Tower Instanbul,” the tweet read, featuring an image of the building in Turkey’s capitol. “After seeing Trump’s congrats to Erdoğan for winning his RIGGED election I’m worried our FP is directed by property.”
Nance couldn’t resist the opportunity to jump on the tweet and responded, “This is my nominee for the first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property.”
The tweet quickly spread, prompting Nance to delete it, but not to offer an apology. His future as a commentator is in serious trouble, as many are wondering just how serious Nance’s comment was.
Well, after a look back at Nance’s history with all things Trump and the Islamic State group, one could suspect that Nance meant every word he tweeted.
During the campaign, Nance stated that Trump was the “ISIS candidate,” accusing the then-Republican nominee of aiding the Islamic State group through his campaign rhetoric.
“I will go so far as to say Donald Trump is the ISIS candidate. He inflames the passions of people in the West to perform Islamophobia, to draw recruits to them, to make them say, ‘This is what America is,'” Nance said.
He also said in March that Trump was a threat to American democracy.
“I mean we have got a very serious problem here. This man may be in a position where he will start causing true harm to American democracy,” he stated on AM Joy.
One might even argue that when Nance wrote that tweet, he would have wanted to see Trump inside the building when an Islamic State group suicide bomber made Trump Tower Istanbul his target. He does feel Trump is a threat to American democracy, after all.
