Broadway legend Carole Cook suggested that President Donald Trump should be killed when she jokingly asked where John Wilkes Booth was when people needed him.
The 94-year-old actress referred to Booth, the man behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, when he was questioned about President Trump by TMZ in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
& # 39; Where is John Wilkes Booth when you need him? & # 39; Cook said referring to the actor who shot and killed Lincoln in Washington DC in 1865.
Broadway legend Carole Cook suggested on Sunday that President Donald Trump should be killed when she jokingly asked where John Wilkes Booth was when people needed him.
Cook made the comments after he approached him outside a West Hollywood restaurant and asked him about a recent Frozen on Broadway presentation that made headlines.
A member of the audience held a banner of Trump 2020 & # 39; during the visit to New York last week when artist Timothy R Hughes was filmed taking the sign and throwing it away.
When asked about her thoughts, Cook and her actor husband, Tom Troupe, said they had not heard of the incident involving the Trump supporter.
Cook then followed up with his comment about Lincoln's killer.
Her husband intervened after saying: "He killed the presidents."
Cook replied: Do not say that. They will catch me for that. They will not see, no. Where is he when you need him?
The 94-year-old actress referred to Booth, the man behind the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, when he was questioned about President Trump on Sunday night.
Cook and her actor husband, Tom Troupe, were asked about their thoughts on Trump's supporter in the Broadway show Frozen when they joked about the president.
When asked if President Trump should be killed, Cook said: & # 39; Why not? & # 39;
She followed and asked if the comment would result in her being included in the "enemy list".
"My God, I hope so," he said. "Just keep me out of jail, or maybe not."
The Secret Service told DailyMail.com that they were aware of Cook's comment.
"While we do not confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations, we can say that we investigate all threats against the president," said a spokesman for the Secret Service.
The Secret Service investigates the threats made against the President. They questioned the comedy Kathy Griffin last year after posing with an accessory that appeared to be Trump's severed head.
The Broadway incident with the Trump fan who provoked the questions for Cook took place last Wednesday.
Timothy R. Hughes, an actor in the Broadway musical Frozen, has said he will not apologize for pulling a banner from Trump 2020 & # 39; of a member of the audience after a show last week
Hughes, who plays the character Pabbie in the Disney production, shared a clip of himself, taking the Trump 2020 poster and throwing him offstage.
He continued to call the audience member a "disrespectful man who tried to interrupt this moment with a pathetic political platform".
"What does it say about our country and politics when a man on tonight's show felt the need to protest Frozen on Disney's Broadway with a Pro Trump flag?
"How scary is it that the messages of love, acceptance and diversity of our program have become the opposition to support Trump?
"The call for attention is a gratitude between the actors and the audience, a final connection to end a shared experience, I will not apologize for how I responded to the disrespectful man who was trying to interrupt this moment with a pathetic political platform, not in our show! Not in front of my beautiful, diverse and talented cast & # 39;
