HAHA! I’m only laughing at the suspect… not the situation. This dude claimed he was a U.S. SENATOR! WHO OWNED TRUMP TOWER! HAHA And was there to talk to Ivanka about her CLOTHING LINE!
Oh man, that really takes the cake!
After his arrest, it was revealed that he was wearing a bulletproof vest, carrying a sock full of weights, as well as a fake New York I.D oh and two throwing knives.
There’s no doubt that his intentions were not good and thankfully the Secret Service caught on to him quite early.
As written for AllenBWest.com by Matt Palumbo:
An attempted act of political violence was just thwarted – but don’t expect a wave of reporting from the Left on the need to tone down “violent rhetoric.” If any obscure act of violence can be blamed on President Donald Trump’s “rhetoric,” expect CNN to cover it as if a flight in Malaysia had gone missing.
Meanwhile, threats of, and attempted violence against the first family? You can expect silence in response to that.
As the Daily Caller reported, Secret Service agents arrested a man who was wearing a bulletproof vest and armed with several weapons Thursday as he attempted to meet Ivanka Trump at Trump Tower in New York City.
Agents noticed 52-year-old Adames Benitez was wearing the bulletproof vest under his shirt when he entered Trump Tower around 4 p.m, The New York Daily News reported. Benitez claimed that he was a U.S. senator who owned Trump Tower and was there to speak with Ivanka Trump about her clothing line.
Police searched Benitez and found two throwing knives, a sock with weights inside and a fake New York I.D, according to police.
Benitez has been charged with weapons possession and having a fake identification card. He was taken to Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City for psychiatric evaluation.
