Lesley Stahl Requires 24-Hour Security After Death Threats, Trump Stills Calls Her ‘Angry, Rude, Crazy’
Do you still hear people say that there’s no difference between the two parties? Still here people say that they’re both controlled by corporate America and that voting for one is the same as the other.
We have read from people in the Lincoln Project talk about the death threats that they get from people on the far right and have noted that they’ve had serious disagreements with liberals all their lives, but it took joining the never Trumper movement to get death threats to his family:
Gosh, you know what really convinces me I was so wrong about Trump’s cult?
Texting death threats to my wife and kids with my home address on them.
(Yes, I’ve informed relevant LE.)

And so now, of course, according to TMZ along with many other outlets, Stahl is getting death threats from Donald Trump fans for … we really aren’t sure. She confronted Trump with facts that contradicted his. He had every right to present his case as to why her facts were wrong and that he – the president with access to more information than anyone in the world – happened to be right, but he didn’t do it, he just dodged out of there like she had insulted him by rebutting his rally speech.
According to TMZ:
The “60 Minutes” interview President Trump cut short over what he felt was unfair questioning from Lesley Stahl has left her, and her family, in a dangerous situation … TMZ has learned.Multiple sources tell us … CBS is now providing Stahl with around-the-clock security due to a death threat made to the home of one of her immediate family members on the west coast.
Here’s Trump just TODAY slamming Stahl and telling his supporters that Stahl had “fire coming out of her eyes.”

So it’s not just Stahl now, it’s all immediate family members, and they would not take on that expense (because security is NOT cheap) unless they believed they had a damned good reason to do so. There is a difference between parties in the United States. One is a militant proto-fascist movement looking for legitimacy, and one is longing to get back to constitutional western liberal democracy. It isn’t hard to figure out which is which. As the people getting death threats. They are all from one side.
