Governor Jokes About Shooting Cartoonist… To Cartoonist’s Son

It seems like 80 percent of the news is about people being caught saying something and then someone else showing frowny-face disapproval, but I guess a public figure like Maine Governor Paul LePage wishing for another regional public figure like cartoonist George Danby to be shot is worth noting because of the context of some recent violence against cartoonists. That he made the joke to the cartoonist's son seems even weirder. I imagine there's a small chance this could later be seen as someone's inciting incident, but let's sure hope not.
