The U.S. Secret Service has launched a formal inquiry after legendary Broadway star Carole Cook joked about President Donald Trump being assassinated over the weekend, according to a new report.
Upon leaving West Hollywood steakhouse Craig’s Sunday evening, TMZ caught up with Carole Cook and her husband Tom Troupe, and asked what she thought about Frozen the Broadway Musical actor Timothy Hughes stealing a ‘Trump 2020’ flag from an audience member the previous week.
“I didn’t see that,” Cook told the cameraman. Asked if a Broadway musical was the proper venue to wave a pro-Trump flag, Carole Cook replied, “My answer to that is, where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?”
“Now you’re going to ask me who the hell John Wilkes Booth is,” the Broadway actress added. “He killed presidents,” Troupe said of President Abraham Lincoln’s killer.
