    Donald Trump’s lawyer asserted on Wednesday that the president could shoot someone on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and not be prosecuted, but the New York Police Department said that is absolutely not the case.

    NYPD First Deputy Commissioner Benjamin Tucker was pressed on the issue during an unrelated press conference on Thursday. Asked by a reporter if the police department would arrest Trump if he shot someone, Tucker began laughing.

    “We would. I mean, it’s as simple as that,” he said.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio agreed, telling members of the media that “if anybody shoots someone, they get arrested. I don’t care if they’re the president of the United States or anybody else.”

    I think he means, “if anybody shoots a white person, they get arrested.”

    What about the Secret Service? I don’t think the outcome of a situation like that would be so simple. This ‘story’ is just a bit of drama in our reality show political culture, anyway.
