Trump Derangement Syndrome rears its ugly head once again!
Liberal science writer Johannes Josephus Marinus Velterop, you stereotypical Twitter ‘bluecheck’, decided to publish a wild conspiracy theory about the accidental murder committed by leading anti-Trump comedian Alec Baldwin.
Without evidence, Marinus claimed a Trump supporter secretly planted live ammunition in a prop gun actor and co-producer Alec Baldwin shot on the set of “Rust,” killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounding director Joel Souza.
Velterop’s conspiracy theory details a Trump supporter seeking revenge on Baldwin for making fun of Trump on “Saturday Night Live.” Again, there is no evidence for the floated theory.
After push-back online, Velterop doubled-down and suggested Trump supporters were dismissing his evidence-free theory because it’s “too close to the bone.”
Why is it only MAGA-types that vehemently dismiss this as one of the possible causes? Too close to the bone?
Btw, I do hope it was just an accident, but it's America after all.

It appears the conspiracy theory was flagged by users on the social media site, but Twitter sided with Velterop, saying the post “is not subject for removal under Twitter rules.”

The prop gun that Baldwin fired on Thursday was reportedly given to him by a crew member who was the target of a 2019 safety complaint.
Baldwin on Friday released a statement addressing the incident.
“There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” the statement read. “I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family.”
“My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna,” the actor added.
Despite the tragedy, and it is a very unfortunate tragedy, it’s hard not to notice the incredible irony of the situation.
Alec Baldwin, a vehement anti-gun demagogue, is responsible for the accidental death of a co-worker using the very weapon he seeks to make illegal.
Not only that, he’s spend Trump’s entire presidency doing bad impressions for liberal audiences, condemning Trump supporters as “racists,” and peddling in the most unthinkable hate imaginable all for an audience of low IQ liberals.
With his deplorable behavior, does Baldwin really believe he’ll be showered with fortunate events?
