CBS Shows Armed Anti-Trump Character Saying, ‘We Need to Assassinate the President’

CBS All Access Television on Sunday night streamed an episode of The Good Fight in which an anti-President Donald Trump character armed with a handgun said, “we need to assassinate the president” and spoke of “regime change”.

The Media Research Center’s Callista Ring reported on CBS’ nationwide broadcast encouraging the assassination of President Trump.

…Lawyer Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski), who despises Trump and spends most of her time hallucinating fake news segments about the president, defends her friend Tully after he was arrested for violently rioting in the streets. Tully jokes privately to Diane in court, “Oh, like we need to assassinate the President?” in response to Diane asking him not to say anything radical. When she reprimands him for the statement in a later scene, he assures her that he was only joking. TGP note: Tully mentions the judge is a Trump supporter, which prompts Lockhart to admonish him not to say anything radical. That prompts his statement, ““Oh, like we need to assassinate the President?”

But lest you think this was just an innocent joke, check out this next exchange. In response to Diane finding a gun in his bag and demanding to know if what he said in court was a joke, Tully responds, “Why? You don’t believe in regime change?” When she hands him back the gun after unloading it, he tells her, “This won’t slow us down.”

CBS has a habit of broadcasting calls for the assassination of Republican presidents and GOP nominees. In 2000 CBS aired a taped episode of the Craig Kilborn show in which footage of GOP presidential nominee George W. Bush was shown with the words “Snipers Wanted”.
