BBC host David Aaronovitch tweets ‘if I was Biden I’d HURRY up and have Trump murdered’ after court ruling

21

David Aaronovitch, who presents Radio 4’s Briefing Room show, took to X Monday: ‘If I was Biden I’d hurry up and have Trump murdered on the basis that he is a threat to America’s security #SCOTUS’.

It comes after the US Supreme Court ruled that former US presidents have broad immunity from prosecution, extending the delay in the Washington criminal case against Trump on charges he plotted to overturn his 2020 presidential election loss and all but ending prospects the former president could be tried before the November election.

In a historic 6-3 ruling, the court’s conservative majority, including three justices appointed by Trump, narrowed the case against him and returned it to a trial court to determine what is left of special counsel Jack Smith’s indictment. 

Critics claimed Mr Aaronovitch had broken the corporation’s rules around employee impartiality. 

However, he stressed the post was ‘satirical’ before he deleted the tweet 90 minutes later blaming a ‘far right pile on’.

BACKLASHES

Spectator columnist Steven Barratt wrote on X: ‘Impartiality’ may not be in the best of health at the BBC…’

A second person said: ‘This post alone is bad enough but even worse when you remember that David is a BBC presenter.’

Another person urged him to delete the post and said: ‘Delete this tweet David. You advocating murder, publicly, and think it is ok .’
