Matt Harrigan, CEO of PacketSled, was apparently so upset about the outcome of the election that he took to Facebook and went on a rant about President-elect Trump.
Harrigan’s post gained momentum and was quickly outed on one of the most (if not the most) pro-Trump online forums on Reddit. The reaction was fierce, as it should have been, and Harrigan deleted the threats.
But not before someone snapped a screenshot of them and shared them on Reddit.
“I’m going to kill the president. Elect,” he allegedly said.
Harrigan then expounded on his plans to kill Trump, resorting to language that some readers might find offensive:
He also taunted the Secret Service in his little rant.
Below is a compilation of all Harrigan’s tweets before he removed them. Again, be warned — some of them contain graphic language.
Harrigan claimed his remarks were a “flawed joke.”
My humble apologies that a flawed joke has become public/out of context. My poor judgement does not represent the views of @packetsled …

Of course he said it was a joke. But it was a little too late.
Not many people bought the idea that his remarks were a joke — and many of them are calling for a boycott of PacketSled, which is a network security company.
On Tuesday, the company said it accepted Harrigan’s resignation.
It was not immediately known if the Secret Service visited Harrigan.
It remains to be seen whether this action will save their company from any fallout related to Harrigan’s threats against the president-elect.
With people like Harrigan, the left only continues to reveal how it is not the party of peace and tolerance. In fact, Democrats continue to prove how they are the party of crybabies who cannot accept the results of an election — an election they tried their best to rig, only to lose anyway.
It must be difficult to accept, but liberals need to grow up and stop acting like spoiled children.
