The Twitter account for the CBS show “The Good Fight” brazenly bragged about an “easter egg” among their “target words” within a scene in their new show “The Good Fight.”
The first three words in the list? ASSASSINATE PRESIDENT TRUMP
It wasn’t a very subtle hint and Twitter users quickly noticed the disgraceful implied threat.
Threatening the President of the United States is a federal felony under United States Code Title 18, Section 871. It consists of knowingly and willfully mailing or otherwise making “any threat to take the life of, to kidnap, or to inflict bodily harm upon the President
The offence is punishable by up to 5 years in prison and/or a $250,000 maximum fine.
So I guess this CBS show is posting a photo that has the first three words on that reads Assassinate President Trump.

This is very concerning. Almost sick to my stomach.
