Massachusetts Sheriff ‘Jokes’ That President Obama Should Be Shot

At a Massachusetts Republican Party St. Patrick’s Day breakfast Sunday, Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph D. McDonald, Jr. (R) “joked” that the nation would be better off if President Obama were assassinated.

Blue Mass Group reports that the Boston Globe noted the stunning comment Sunday:

McDonald offered a joke about Barack Obama being visited in a dream by three past presidents, who offered advice on how to improve the country. Lincoln’s advice: “Go to the theater.”

The alleged joke received “scattered laughter.”

McDonald, who was first elected Sheriff in 2004, notes on his website that he is an “avid sportsman and target shooter” and writes: “Plymouth County deserves the best in public safety, and I intend to continue to deliver.” Given the assassination attempt on Rep. Gabby Giffords in 2011 and the spate of mass shootings across the country, it is stunning that a top public safety officer would find this sort of “joke” appropriate.

A spokesman for McDonald did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Since when did it become "OK" to even joke in a public setting about assassinating a sitting president?
