Secret Service Visits Woman Who Called for Trump to Be Shot on Facebook
Texas woman questioned after posting 'Can someone shoot the fool between the eyes...'
A San Antonio, Texas woman seemingly bit off more than she could chew after Secret Service paid her a visit at her home, in response to calls for the violence she made on Facebook toward President Trump.
The woman was confronted on her doorstep by a police officer and a Secret Service agent who said they wanted to "ask questions" about a post on social media she made about Trump, in which she asked: "Can someone shoot the fool between the eyes..."
Claiming her calls to murder a sitting president were simply an expression of "free speech," the woman refused to answer the agent's questions, with her nephew filming the encounter shortly after they arrived.
The clip shows an agent and a police officer standing on a woman's doorstep as they try to question her on January 10.

Throughout the video, the shocked woman argues about her right to freedom of speech and repeatedly asks if she's committed a crime.
She asks them: "You're with the secret service you said?"
The two plain-clothed men nod in response.
According to the Daily Mail, during the conversation, the woman's nephew who is filming behind her, asks what is going on.
She replies: "I made comments online so the secret service came to my door with a SAPD that works with them."
Rifling through the paper on his clip board, the Secret Service agent tries to ask for her personal details.
He says: "I'm just going to ask you some questions – what's your date of birth?"
The woman tells the agent that it is "none of his concern" and goes on to ask if she is being arrested.
She says: "Is this mandatory? Do I need to speak to you? Am I under arrest and I being charged with anything?"
The agent and police officer reiterate that she isn't under arrest and they are just there to ask her questions about her violent comments.
The agent says: "I'm here to ask about the statements you made online."
The woman asks: "What statement?"
Opening his files, the secret agent begins reading the comment she posted on her Facebook account.
He says: "Can someone shoot the fool between the eyes..."
Suddenly angered, the woman interrupts him and says: "So what you're saying is that I don't have freedom of speech?
"I can't say what I want to? Is that the concern?
"Did I commit a crime by expressing what I said?"
The two men say that she has not committed a crime and that she can refuse to be interviewed.
The woman then says that she refuses to be asked any more questions until she has hired an attorney to be with her.
And after she takes down the agents phone number, the furious woman slams the door shut and the clip ends.
The video was filmed by the woman's nephew who made allegations that the men acted unlawfully before they were filmed.
He said: "My aunt posted a comment about Donald Trump and a few hours later the secret service came to our home with a local police officer.
"Before I began recording the agent was trying to intimidate and get in our home without a warrant.
"After an exchange of words they left."
