You’re gonna die’ Trump fan arrested for allegedly threatening prominent critics of the president

John Kless, 49, called Representatives Eric Swalwell (D-CA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), threatening them and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), according to the Miami New Times, which cited a federal indictment and court records.

In the messages for the three lawmakers, Kless is quoted as having made numerous racist references to a fourth member of Congress who had made comments about 9/11. Her office didn't immediately respond with comment.

'Further, if your response to a lawmaker proposing to make it harder for risky people to get unsafe weapons is to threaten to kill that lawmaker, you have proven exactly why we need more restrictions on firearm possession, ' Swalwell said. So are you. All right?

"You're an abomination, just like faggots, mother--er". "I'd like to take that b-h and threw her right off the Empire State Building, that f-ing whore".

The message left for Tlaib was particularly egregious. Tell her to shut her fucking mouth. So tell her to shut the fuck up, all right? He called Tlaib "Taliban", and Omar a "towel head". You stanking, f-ing smelly f-ing bitch.

"F-- off. I wish all of you the worst". You can go fuck off in life. F*** you and f*** Mohammed too.

Kumar voted in Bulandshahr in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, according to the news site . The plebiscite is taking place over seven stages, with votes set to be counted on May 23.

Swalwell, who recently announced his bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, said he was grateful to the Capitol Police and Florida law enforcement for protecting him. He also called Swalwell a communist and, oddly, the N-word.

Kless also allegedly called Swalwell about 9 minutes before the call to Tlaib on April 16, leaving a voicemail saying "the day you come after our guns motherf***er is the day you'll be dead". "You're gonna die. Don't wanna do that shit, boy". Don't wanna do that shit, boy. "So if you want death, keep that s- up, mother-er", he continued.

Kless appeared in court Friday and has been released, according to the court docket. "You're a fucking disgrace", Kless allegedly said. "We need to kill all you motherf--ers, man, every f--ing one of you, man". He added that the terror attack in Charlottesville, Virginia - in which a white supremacist drove a auto into progressive protester Heather Heyer - killed only "one fucking person".

Kless also allegedly told Booker to "shut up about 9/11 and [unintelligible] and tell that motherf***ing towel head to shut up". Kless allegedly told Booker "we're going to have a war in this country motherf***ers" and "you're going to be the motherf***ers who pay". "Don't worry - you government officials will be in the graves where you belong". After running Kless' name and phone number, federal investigators learned he had previously left "profane/harassing" messages at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's office.

Local 10 News reporter Andrew Perez went to Kless' apartment Friday, where a woman, believed to be his wife, said the home had been raided by authorities and she had had enough. He moved to South Florida in 2015. He graduated with honors from Temple University.
