Assassination by Forklift

In another interesting story that would’ve gotten a lot more coverage if someone else was President a North Dakota man was arrested for stealing a forklift in an attempt to kill President Trump. Gregory Lee Leingang was going to make his move as President Trump passed through Bismarck, North Dakota and according to U.S. Assistant State Attorney Brandie Russell: “The intent was to basically try to get to the limo, flip the limo and get to the president and he wanted to kill the president.” More simply amazing details from the story:

Leingang tried to escape after the forklift got stuck in a gated area, according to reports. He was caught by local police and allegedly confessed his plan to authorities, including the U.S. Secret Service.

Leingang ended up pleading guilty in court and was sentenced to five years in prison. Based upon the fawning representation of former President Obama I have to wonder how such a story would have been treated just a few years ago?
