Elie Mystal, an MSNBC regular who once called for a majority of white people in America to be destroyed on air, tweeted Wednesday that he regularly fantasizes about ramming his car into the lobby of a Trump Organization luxury apartment complex in a New York City suburb.
“Real talk: When you come out of the parking lot of this mall/movie theater, you have to sit a red light staring right into this lobby,” Mystal wrote on Twitter, linking to an article about a recent incident in which his fantasy became a reality in Westchester. “I’ve thought about driving my car through it EVERY TIME. Basic humanity keeps me from doing it, but JUST.”
In addition to his affiliation with MSNBC, Mystal is the executive editor of the “Above the Law” blog and is a contributor to The Nation.
The New York Daily News reported Tuesday, that a car accidentally ploughed into the Trump Plaza hotel resulting in minor injuries. Mystal floated a conspiracy theory that the accident was intentional, though both the Daily News and the New York Times have reported that the act was an accident.
Anyway, innocent until proven guilty but… “accident” doesn’t seem likely to me. Maybe that’s my own bias. Defense counsel should NOT put me on this guy’s jury, I know too much :).
