Brian D. Dutcher - La Crosse County Sheriff’s Department

A Wisconsin man is in custody for threatening to kill President Barack Obama after allegedly telling a security guard at a La Crosse library, “the usurper is here and if I get a chance I’ll take him out and I’ll take the shot.”

Brian D. Dutcher, 55, of Tomah, was taken into custody after confirming his threat to the Secret Service, KTLA reports.

According to the warrant for his arrest, Dutcher also posted a threat against the president on Facebook on June 30, reading, “that’s it! Thursday I will be in La Crosse. Hopefully I will get a clear shot at the pretend president. Killing him is our CONSTITUTIONAL DUTY!”

President Obama was appearing in La Crosse to pitch his plan to expand overtime pay for workers.

According to a detective who interviewed Dutcher, the would-be assassin said that his threat was serious and that “he would not have said what he said if he didn’t intend to carry it out.”

Dutcher is currently being held pending a court appearance.

Unlike other videos, the latest release did not feature Trump saying crazy things. Instead, it is more like a 60-second short film.

It features a mother listening to election night returns. She goes into her son's bedroom and lovingly awakens him.

"Hey honey, you asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election," she says.

"Who won?" the child asked.

"Trump," she replied. "Trump won."

Republican lawmakers broke into applause as the tally was read out, and the White House is also expected to celebrate the confirmation in the final run-up to the November 3 election, in which more than 60 million Americans have already voted.
