It’s not like nobody would notice a big yellow forklift. Did he think that plot out?
Gregory Lee Leingang tried to assault President Trump’s limousine with a forklift thus tipping it over and harming the Commander-in-chief. Don’t ask me whether or not this guy was smoking some latin lettuce or doing a few lines of cocaine when he came up with this plan but he’s off the map.
On Friday, Leingang pleaded guilty to stealing the forklift to attempt the assault. He was initially charged with one count of damaging government property and another count of trying to enter and remain in a restricted building using a dangerous weapon.
Brandi Sasse Russell, U.S. Assistant State’s Attorney said Leingang knew Trump was going to be at the Andeavor Mandan Refinery, to give a speech and was making his plans to do damage to an area which had been cordoned off for the motorcade route.
As of right now, there’s no real background info on this guy. If somebody attempted to do that to Barack Obama, the opposition media would have done a complete background history on the guy and had it splattered all over the news cycle. Political affiliations, social media history, employment history, address of family, etc.
Prior to the president’s arrival at around 2 p.m., Leingang stole a forklift in Mandan and entered the motorcade route, according to Sasse Russell.
“The intent was to basically try to get to the limo, flip the limo and get to the president and he wanted to kill the president,” Sasse said.
The forklift got stuck in a gated area and Leingang fled. He was apprehended by Mandan police, according to Sasse Russell. She said Leingang later admitted his plan to Mandan detectives, as well as a member of United States Secret Service.
“He was suffering a serious psychiatric crisis during this incident,” Michelle Monteiro, Leingang’s public defender, said in court.

Leingang’s public defender claimed that he was “suffering a serious psychiatric crisis” at the time of the incident. Leingang also set fires to the Bismarck Municipal Ballpark maintenance shop and the state parole and probation office before stealing the forklift.
“Liberalism Is A Mental Disorder,” as Michael Savage has said for so many years on his radio show. But, this specific case was an obvious ploy by his lying public defender to get him off scot-free. I don’t think he was suffering from any psychotic break at all. He knew full well what he was doing. He knew right from wrong.
