An anonymous Twitter user with an account dedicated to promoting the Democratic Socialists has threatened a mass shooting at Tuesday evening’s MAGA Meetup at Trump Hotel in DC.
The threat was directed at this writer and stated that they are “coming with a gun” and that they “expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies” along with a photo of a gun.
The monthly networking meetup will be a mix of several different pro-Trump groups including Virginia Women for Trump. Members of the media, midterm candidates and people who work closely with the president are often in attendance at the events.
