Volkmann, who is based out of Minnesota, told MMAFighting.com after his win over McKee that he wanted to face Obama because he disagreed with many of his policies.
After defeating McKee, Volkmann was asked who he would like to fight next. Volkmann first requested Clay Guida, then said “Actually, Obama. He’s not too bright … Someone needs to knock some sense into that idiot. I just don’t like what Barack is doing.” ..
.The Secret Service showed up both at his residence and during a youth wrestling camp he coaches. “This guy had the whole interview on a piece of paper and it had my picture and everything,” said Volkmann. “He was like ‘is this what you said?’ and I said, ‘yes it is.’ He’s like ‘I want to let you know I’m a little embarrassed for coming here and doing this because obviously nothing happened.’Secret Service actually apologized for coming, but he had to come. He wanted to make sure I wasn’t going to D.C to hurt the President.
“The thing is, I got home and I checked my e-mail and I had about 20 e-mails and one of them, one of ladies had actually contacted the FBI and the Secret Service, and she was telling me that she was going to do it.” The person who contacted Volkmann, according to the fighter, was a member of the election committee that worked for President Obama’s campaign.Answer Question

My bio dad worked for Boeing in Wichita, Kansas when Clinton was President. He was working on Air Force One when he made a comment about how furious he was Clinton was our next President. The Secret Service took him to a room and interviewed him for hours then interviewed his supervisors and co workers. He didn't make any threats just voiced while working his frustration over our newly elected President. They let him go back to work after sufficiently embarrassing him.

You can say you don't like the job the president is doing, but you can't say you want to knock some sense into him. That will get you a whole bunch of new friends. My cousin worked with the Secret Service during the daddy Bush Administration. She was a psychiatrist who analysed letters and phone messages to determine if someone needed a visit.
