Comedian George Lopez appeared to back a rumored $80 million bounty placed on President Donald Trump from the Islamic Republic of Iran on Sunday, writing on Instagram, “We’ll do it for half.”
An Instagram account posted a graphic that stated: “Iran ‘offers $80 million bounty for Donald Trump’s head’ after death of general.”
The Instagram account wrote in a caption: “#Iranian authorities have put a bounty on American President Donald Trump’s head during the televised funeral of General #QasemSoleimani after he was assassinated last week. What are your thoughts?”
George Lopez responded, “We’ll do it for half.”
Lopez has a long history of making disgusting and often violent remarks about President Trump, but this marks a new low, even for him. As his threat may have crossed the line from tasteless joke to actual national security threat.
