On Sunday, the Iranian regime put an $80 million bounty on the head of President Donald Trump.
“Iran’s regime just announced an $80 million bounty for anyone who brings the head of @realDonaldTrump for killing Soleimani.” Middle Eastern reporter Hanif Jazayeri said in a tweet, adding, “PS: Iran’s ppl however are overjoyed at Soleimani’s death. As the #IranProtests have shown, they long for an end to the mullahs’ tyranny.”
However, comedian George Lopez seemed to believe the topic assassinating the president of the United States was an appropriate one to joke about.
Or, was he even joking?
On a Instagram post with the news, Lopez said that “We’ll do it for half” of the $80 million bounty. The comment has been up for several hours now and has yet to be removed.
Here’s the screenshot of the comment:
Lopez joins thousands of other individuals who have joked — or half-joked — about executing the $80 million bounty across social media.
The Secret Service and FBI will have to weigh what threats are actually credible, but, regardless, many people will likely be getting visits from the Secret Service in the very near future.
Including, perhaps, George Lopez himself.
