Leaked Screenshots Show Far Left BuzzFeed Hacks Joking about Trump Assassination

BuzzFeed News’s Ben Smith went on Fox News to talk to Tucker Carlson on Wednesday. During the interview he defended BuzzFeed’s openness and tolerance to opposing views politically, socially, etc.

This is FALSE.

This questioning of BuzzFeed’s tolerance stems from a recent Business Insider profile on once-upon-a-time alt-right provocateur Baked Alaska, a.k.a. Tim Gionet, a former BuzzFeed employee.

Big League Politics reports:

In screenshots exclusively provided to Big League Politics by former BuzzFeed employee Tim “Treadstone” Gionet, better known as Baked Alaska, the website’s Director of Social Media Maycie Thornton wishes for Trump’s assassination as co-workers laughed and cheered her on.

“Maybe someone will assassinate him,” said Thornton.

The following images are from the Big League Politics article:

In speaking with Big League exclusively, Gionet commented:

“This was not the first time BuzzFeed employees talked openly about wishing President Trump would get assassinated, they hated conservatives so much they even held an office party when Justice Scalia died. It was a toxic environment and you were declared a heretic if you were a Trump supporter, bottom line.”

Bringing it all back to Ben Smith, Gionet commented publicly on Twitter regarding the truth and BuzzFeed:
