Journalists Caught Secretly Joking About Donald Trump Assassination

Two journalists were heard making jokes over a hot mic Tuesday about former President Donald Trump being taken down by an assassin’s bullet as they waited for him to arrive at the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C.

“You know what the worst part is? Even if he has his window open and he’s hanging out of it, he will be on the other side of the street,” one person could be heard saying on the live feed from the Associated Press.

“I mean, if he’s driving, we’ve got a good shot,” the second reporter said hopefully, to which the first replied: “Yeah, if he’s driving with the front window open.”

The conversation then continued on joking about the former president arriving in an open-top car like the one President John F. Kennedy was riding in when he was assassinated in 1963.

“Yeah, or if it’s a convertible,” the second person said.

“Yeah, I wasn’t thinking about that,” replied the first.

“Yeah, like if he just pulls up —” the second started to say before the first interjected and asked: “Like JFK?”

“Maybe someone, just like they told JFK, ‘You know what you should do? You should take a convertible! It’s so nice out,’” the journalist continued.
