Authorities have arrested a Florida man who allegedly wore a towel over his head and covered his body with a shower curtain while threatening President Donald Trump on Facebook live.


Maybe the idea seemed like a good idea to him at the time?

WPEC-TV reports:

According to a criminal complaint from the United States Secret Service, 26-year-old Chauncy Lump made the threats on Friday, not long after President Trump made a statement from West Palm Beach about the airstrikes that killed a top Iranian general. Trump moved on to an event in the Miami area that night.

Federal investigators say Lump used the name of 'BlackMan vs America' in the live video post, which had Middle Eastern type music playing in the background. They say he also laughed during some of the threats.

The threatening statements made by Lump include:

  • 'He killed my leader, please tell me where is Donald Trump?'
  • 'I need to find the Donald because if I don't find him I am going to have to blow up Broward County.'
  • 'Do not play with me, I have AK-47.'
  • 'He killed my leader and I have to kill him.'


Lump reportedly was wearing cream on his face, a towel on his head and had his body covered by a shower curtain in the video.

WPTV reports that Lump faces one count threats against the President of the United States. His bond has been set at $100,000.

According to the court affidavit, Lump said, "I shouldn't have did it in the first place."

Really? You think?
