Trump Supporter Executed Live On Stage At Grammy Awards
Babylon Bee ^ | January 29, 2018

Do I really need to point out that this is satire?

NEW YORK, NY—In a moving highlight at this year’s Grammy Award ceremony, 42-year-old Trump supporter Bill Myers was called up onstage and executed by way of the guillotine partway through the proceedings.

“We’ve got an extra special surprise for you tonight,” host James Corden said just after Bruno Mars accepted his 43rd award of the show. “Voilà!” he exclaimed as he pulled a black cover off the archaic execution device.

At that, Myers was dragged kicking and screaming up to the podium, where he was forced to his knees and compelled to confess that he does in fact support some of Donald Trump’s policies. Audience members beaned him with rotten fruit, moldly vegetables, and copies of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, until finally, he was marched over to the guillotine and had his head pushed down underneath the sharp, shining blade.

“Any last words?” Corden said as he prepared to turn a lever and drop the blade.

“I just said I liked his stance on small businesses!” Myers is then seen screaming for his life on footage of the event.

Shaking his head in disgust, Corden then pulled the lever. The blade sang its melody of death, cleanly lopping Myers’s head off. The host lifted his head up to the chanting crowd, eliciting a 15-minute standing ovation, with a spontaneous chant of “Not my president!” erupting throughout the audience. Corden tossed the head to the crowd, where it was then batted about like a beach ball, according to attendees.

At publishing time, several Trump supporters’ heads had been mounted on spikes outside Madison Square Garden as a warning.

Sick. If this really happened.

I don’t watch such filth, so I wouldn’t know.

Just saw your/the satire note.

No thanks. Not the least bit funny, to me.

Yes. You do need to point it out as satire. I never would put this past the media. It’s not like I watched the freak show.

One small chop for a man, one giant leap for the ratings.

(Yes, the Babylon Bee is a satire site...)

It’s satire. Babylon Bee. Besides, the Progs wouldn’t use a guillotine because its too clean. These are Killing Fields kind of people.

Many a truth is told in jest.

We know who you all are. We’re behind blades of grass, cracks in security fences. You let us in when for repairs. Reign in your murderous communist thoughts lest they give birth to something you can’t take back.

Maximilien Robespierre was a prog and he became notorious for his use of the guillotine for state terrorism in revolutionary France.

I am pretty sure that the symbolism was not lost on the producers of the “satire” at the grammy awards.

The Left hates you and wants you dead.

Plan, and act, accordingly.

Yes you really do need to say it is satire because it is entirely believable they would pull stunts like that. Minus it being really cutting their heads off.

I was wondering the same thing. I’m tired of seeing Brits on American TV telling us whats wrong with America.

The fact that some people are questioning whether it really happened, tells you all you need to know.

Yes. You do need to point it out as satire.

For readers whose Brevity setting is "Headers" instead of "Text," placing the note in the text--instead of in the title--hides that note from their version of the index pages.

I appreciate knowing, without having to open a thread, that the original poster hasn't breathlessly believed satire, attempted satire, or something from an openly fake "news" site. Yes, I've seen a few examples.

As an aside, there isn’t a Leftist alive that wouldn’t relish the thought of helping us Irredeemable Deplorables into the Cattle Cars destined for the Clinton / Obama Reeducation Camps, not a one.

I have a one word answer when asked why I vehemently support the Second Amendment, Liberals.
