Washed-up comic Tom Arnold has had a career resurgence since Hillary’s crushing loss.
The former husband of Roseanne Barr who played Stanley Stupid in the immortal movie classic “The Stupids” has rocketed out of irrelevance for his endless barrage of insane tweets about President Trump.
Arnold has used the microblogging platform to spew hate and vulgarities, foment conspiracy theories and most recently, suggesting that violence against the President Of The United States (and possibly his murder) would be perfectly acceptable.
The culmination of Arnold’s craziness ultimately earned him a visit from the Secret Service.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Secret Service grills comedian Tom Arnold over anti-Trump tweets that could ‘trigger others to commit violence'”:
Secret Service agents visited comedian and actor Tom Arnold’s home last month to question him about his anti-Trump tweets and warn him that social media activity can incite violence against the president.
Arnold had challenged President Trump to a fight after the president praised Rep. Greg Gianforte, R-Mont., last month for body-slamming a reporter during the 2017 special election campaign in Montana. “I say put up or shut up @realDonaldTrump Me vs You. For America. First body slam wins. Any Rally. Any Time. Between now & the midterms,” Arnold wrote Oct. 19.
In a subsequent tweet, that has since been deleted, Arnold invoked comedian Kathy Griffin’s controversial photo shoot in which she held a fake severed head that resembled Trump. “Next time Kathy won’t be holding his fake head!” the deleted tweet said.
Days later, on Oct. 25, two Secret Service agents visited Arnold at his home to question him about the tweets.
Mother Jones posted video of a portion of the hourlong interview, which had been recorded by Arnold. The agents, whose faces are blurred, were aware that he was recording the conversation with a camera that was visible to them, he told the news outlet.
“In your type of case, what we’re concerned with a lot, too, is the audience it could reach, that it could incite somebody,” one of the agents said.
The second agent reiterated how social media posts from prominent people, including posts intended to be in jest, “can trigger others to commit violence.”

Sooner or later the combination of unhinged celebs and Twitter is going to get somebody killed.
