The Internet tore into the president in response. Kellyanne Conway’s husband George Conway had just one word to say in response:

Others also ripped into the president.
The stochastic terrorism has escalated to its natural endgame, with Trump publicly putting out a hit on the whistleblower, plainly inciting his death cult of followers to go after them. https://t.co/efh3FhK42W

Trump trying to scare future whistleblowers by hinting they should be murdered. Cool, cool. Totally rational and not at all bonkers or mob-wannabe.

One of the things he admires about his good buddy King Bone Saw is how he freely murders anyone who dares speak out against him and gets away with it.
