This past June, John Hinckley — the would-be assassin of then-President Ronald Reagan — was unconditionally fully released after 41 years. So, what’s he been up to now that he’s got the freedom to walk around and do whatever he wants?

Well, he’s gotten pretty big into Twitter, for one thing. He originally joined Twitter in October of 2021, and since that time, he’s managed to amass more than 47,000 followers. Not too shabby, eh?

And he’s done it by doing a complete image overhaul. No longer must he be thought of as the guy who tried to murder the President of the United States in order to impress actress Jodie Foster, with whom he was obsessed. Nope. Now, he’s all about peace and love and happiness and love and peace. And all the other good stuff.

And speaking of good rock ‘n roll, how about this?

Wow, we were all wrong about this Hinckley guy!

Turns out he’s even weirder and more messed up than we thought he was.

Well, we’re not sure about AOC’s taste in music, but otherwise they’re pretty much on the same page.

He’ll actually win some people over with this stuff. That’s the really scary part.

Too bad Charles Manson is dead. Otherwise he and Hinckley could be guests on each other’s podcasts or something.

Boy, we can’t wait to see what 2023 will bring. Maybe he’ll win a Grammy. Think he’s got a shot?

Hear that, folks? If you wanna hang with John Hinckley, you’ve got to bring the good vibes only.
