A quick Google search for “Obama noose,” for instance, brings up results for Wisconsin football fans bringing a mask of Mr Obama with a noose around his neck to a game.Those fans generated a considerable amount of criticism for their demonstration, which many noted was explicitly racist.
“Leftists, tell me again about Trump’s violent language ushering in an era of violence,” Ben Shapiro, an American conservative political commentator tweeted.

In a picture that evokes the gruesome memory of terrorist beheadings, comedian Kathy Griffin has posed with a bloodied and detached Donald Trump head — and critics have been quick to condemn the attempt at comedy.
Ms Griffin reportedly joked during the photo shoot that her and the photographer, Tyler Shields, would have to move to Mexico once the pictures were released for fear they’d be thrown in prison.“I can’t prove it, but this person, who has short blonde hair, has a mean streak that all of Hollywood knows about.”.“I know she had a big thing about wanting to be on the show, and we didn’t book her,” she said.Ms Griffin later defended herself on Twitter, saying that she does not condone violence, and that she was referencing Mr Trump's infamous comment about former Fox News Host Megyn Kelly during a debate when he said, "You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes.Blood coming out of her wherever." 1/ I caption this "there was blood coming out of his eyes, blood coming out of his...wherever" Also @tylershields great Photog/film maker. Kathy has taken down the image and issued the above apology.
