Every day, an unhinged Democrat lawmaker or Trump-hating Hollywood actor/director is inspiring more hate in Americans who don’t agree with the president’s policies, putting the life of President Trump in more and more danger.

Only yesterday, Melania had to call the Secret Service after actor Peter Fonda called for the kidnapping of her 11-year-old son, Barron Trump.

Today, a massive manhunt continues for a man who has threatened to shoot President Trump, in 2010, the 26-year-old McAdoo, PA resident was hit with a protection-from-abuse order for threatening former Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin

McCall – A swarm of law enforcement officers, led by the U.S. Marshals Service, spent most Wednesday searching for a Schuylkill County man who allegedly recently threatened to shoot President Donald Trump, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli and other officials.

Shawn R. Christy, 26, of McAdoo allegedly made online threats against Trump and Morganelli last week, posting them on his Facebook page, which is filled with threats and complaints about his treatment by the local and federal justice system.

On a June 12 Facebook post, authorities said, Christy wrote “Keep it up Morganelli, I promise I’ll put a bullet in your head as soon as I put one in the head of President Donald J Trump. Remember where you came from punk.”

A federal warrant charging Christy with making the threats to the president of the United States and other elected officials was approved 48 hours before the search began at 5 a.m. Wednesday in Schuylkill County, according to Deputy Marshal Robert Clark, a supervisor with the Marshal’s Fugitive Unit.

Christy was not found and he may have fled into the woods, Clark said. “He’s a survivalist and could be possibly living in the woods,” he said.

Based on past threats he has made against police, Christy is considered a high-priority for the fugitive task force, authorities said. A $5,000 reward is also being offered by the Marshals Service for anyone with information that can lead to Christy’s apprehension, Clark said.

“He is a clear and present danger to the law enforcement community,” Clark said.

He said Christy could be armed. Christy was arrested in February in Texas for a probation violation and had a black powder firearm on his possession when he was taken into custody, Clark said.

Earlier this month, an alert from the Northampton County sheriff’s office warned that Christy threatened to use “full lethal force” against anyone who tries to arrest him on any charge.

Last year, he was sentenced to probation and anger management classes for threatening to shoot a Bangor tax collection clerk. Last year, he was arrested in Schuylkill County on an aggravated assault charge for allegedly swinging a large stick at McAdoo Mayor Stephan Holly.

Numerous complaints about both cases are on Christy’s Facebook page.

In 2010, Christy, then 18 years old, was hit with a protection-from-abuse order from former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for allegedly bombarding her with unwelcome emails. The next year, Christy and his father, Craig, were arrested by federal authorities in Allentown on charges of harassing Palin’s lawyers in phone calls.

Christy pleaded guilty to harassment in that case, was sentenced to probation, but then did some federal prison time when he violated terms of the probation.

An updated video shows Christy’s mom claiming she “understands” where her son “is coming from, claiming he’s been through so much in the last 10 years. The video also shows Shawn Christy discussing a previous threat with WNEP:

Anyone with information on Christy’s whereabouts are asked to call a 24-hour tipline created by the U.S. Marshals Service at 484-358-1974.
