A North Carolina man was arrested Wednesday and accused of threatening to kill President Barack Obama in a series of Twitter messages, including one saying, "The Secret Service is gonna be defenseless once I aim the Assault Rifle at Barack's Forehead."

Donte Jamar Sims, 21, had an initial court appearance in Charlotte on Thursday and remains in custody.

According to a criminal complaint, Sims sent five Twitter messages Monday morning threatening the president. "Ima hit president Obama with that Lee Harvey Oswald swag," said one tweet. "Well IMA Assassinate president Obama this evening, " said another message. President Obama did not arrive in town until two days later.

He's a complete idiot. Lock him up for a long time so he has plenty of time to think about what he did.
