Civility: New York Times now printing fantasies of President Trump being assassinated with help of Secret Service

Should this have surprised us? Because it kind of did.


Ben Domenech isn’t kidding. For some reason, the New York Times Book Review asked five spy and crime novelists to imagine the next chapter of President Trump’s term, so the odds were pretty good that at least one would end in his assassination, right?

Zoe Sharp was honored that her piece was included:

Here’s an excerpt:

When it was time, he went downstairs, took his place in the lobby before the entourage appeared. The hotel staff had been lined up to see their boss, the president, go by. A few of them applauded. Most did not.

The president didn’t seem to notice. He waved, in his desultory fashion. The Secret Service agents clustered around him, ushered him toward the armored limo idling outside at the curb.

The Russian waited until they were a few steps past before he drew the gun. He sighted on the center of the president’s back, and squeezed the trigger.

Spoiler alert (like we give a damn): the gun misfires and the story ends with a Secret Service agent handing over his Glock and saying, “Here, use mine.”


Now, what was the press saying about violent rhetoric and civility?


Well, the White House didn’t receive a pipe bomb today, but at least there’s an assassination fantasy to tide people over.


Not only a horrible story but printed at exactly the wrong time — good work, New York Times.
