A local man was arrested in Long Island, New York over the weekend after he threatened to kill a volunteer staffer of GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin; verbally threatening the Trump supporter and nearly running-over the worker outside the Congressman’s office.
According to Fox News, the 75-year old suspect identified as Martin Astrof was apprehended after he was driving in “an aggressive manner” towards Donato Panico; a volunteer organizer working on behalf of Rep. Zeldin.
“In the US, political scores are settled at the ballot box, not by trying to kill your political opponents. Donato Panico is a great American, supporter of @realDonaldTrump & one of my campaign vols. He shouldn’t have been targeted like this today for his passion & involvement,” tweeted Zeldin.

“Authorities said that after making threats, Astrof backed his car up in an ‘aggressive manner,’ nearly striking the worker before driving home. He has been charged with making a terroristic threat and second-degree reckless endangerment,” writes Fox.
The arrest comes just days before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was verbally threatened by protesters outside a local restaurant, where demonstrators chanted “We know where you live” as McConnell left the eatery.

The unprovoked harassment comes days after firebrand Congresswoman Maxine Waters urged her supporters to openly confront GOP leaders and Trump officials at “restaurants” and “department stores.”

A NEW LOW: Grown Man THROWS Drink in Teen’s Face, Steals Pro-Trump Hat
The liberal rage towards President Trump and his supporters reached a stunning new low this week after footage surfaced of a grown man throwing his drink in a teen’s face and running off with his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.
The 16-year old teenager was attacked in a Texas burger restaurant out of the blue; telling reporters he was quietly eating with a friend when the man approached them and began harassing the young men.
“F*** the president,” screamed the man, adding “You ain’t supporting s***!”
According to Fox News, the adult was reportedly fired from his job after footage of the incident went viral on social media.
“I support my president and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off. I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me,” said 16-year-old Hunter Richard.
