Secret Service agents recently paid a visit to washed up actor Tom Arnold and interviewed him about his threatening tweets towards President Trump.
Mother Jones exclusively obtained the video of the SS agents questioning Tom Arnold for an hour in his home on October 25th to determine if he posed a threat to President Trump.
Secret Service agents warned Tom Arnold his threatening tweets to the President can incite violence.
Via Mother Jones:
The agents asserted that Arnold had not been singled out. “We go out on any and all tweets and Facebook posts or any type of threat,” one said. “We don’t just focus on—it doesn’t matter if you have 100 followers on Facebook or 500,000 followers…We have to do our due diligence.” The two men had a list of routine queries for the actor: his height, his weight, his Social Security number.
They asked whether he had ever been trained in martial arts. (No.) Did he have any intention of attending a Trump rally? (No.) Not even as a publicity stunt? (No.) Did he have any plans to fly to Washington to try to confront Trump? (No.) How does he typically behave when he gets angry in the workplace? (You put it into the performance.) When was the last time he fired a gun? (“I fired for movies.”) Did he know how to make IEDs? (No.) If he saw Trump, would he have an “impulse…to swing at him?” (“I’m not a crazy person.”) Did he have any ex-wives?

As TGP reported in October, Tom Arnold issued a thinly veiled threat to President Trump in a series of tweets.
Tom Arnold got triggered over president Trump’s comment at a Montana rally wherein he made a joke about Rep. Gianforte body slamming a liberal journalist.
First, Tom Arnold challenged President Trump to a fight at “any rally” between now and the midterms.
Tom Arnold said, “I’m pretty fat myself, but yeah I’d kick his ass buddy” in response to a Twitter user who said “Tom, he out weighs you by about 300 lbs, but i would still bet on you.”
Tom Arnold then took his rhetoric and threats to the next level when he responded to a Twitter user who said Kathy Griffin should officiate the fight between him and Trump.
“Next time Kathy won’t be holding his fake head!” Tom Arnold said referring to Kathy Griffin’s Trump beheading photoshoot.
You asked him to fight you, and responded with “next time Kathy Griffin won’t be holding his fake head”, which suggested you would kill him in your proposed fight @SecretService pic.twitter.com/Mn3A9iOSRG

Twitter never took action against Tom Arnold, but the Secret Service did!
