While on the air, a right-wing radio host in Santa Cruz, Calif., told a joke on Wednesday implying Hillary Clinton should be shot.

According to the Huffington Post, the not-funny joke involved the former secretary of state asking previous presidents for advice on how to help people. When Clinton reaches Lincoln, the 16th president advises her to "go to the theater." (Lincoln was murdered by white supremacist John Wilkes Booth while attending a theater performance.)


The host, who goes by the name "Georgia," has a history of inflammatory remarks. According to Brad Kava at Santa Cruz Patch, Georgia's show "comes from a Tea Party perspective and has all the wit and intelligence of a Ku Klux Klan meeting." As an example, Kava writes that Georgia has previously argued that American slavery wasn't as bad as is commonly believed.
