Actor-comedian Patton Oswalt retweeted and then deleted a tweet about the “long list of target” terrorists will have now that Donald Trump is the U.S. President-elect.
“Trump has properties all over the world,” wrote a twitter user in a tweet that Oswalt re-posted to Twitter. Terrorists will have a long list of targets that are literally owned by POTUS and bear his name.”
Oswalt saw the tweet and retweeted it with the caption, “Holy Fuck. Come ‘n’ get it, terrorists.

Many social media users took Oswalt’s reposting the tweet as condoning attacks on Trump.
Oswalt said his tweet was “badly-worded,” and said he was “trying to express my sincere horror at the situation and went too ironic.”
Oswalt has spent years vocally opposing and criticizing Trump.
In April, the comedian called Trump an “ignorant, vengeful, racist asshole.”
He praised Hillary Clinton, calling her a “badass,” for campaigning with pneumonia. “If Hillary gets the nomination, I’ll vote for Hillary,” said Oswalt.
