John McAfee Claims Someone Tried to Assassinate Him for the 12th Time in His Life

    John McAfee’s “enemies” are getting bolder. The 72-year old antivirus software pioneer is currently recovering in hospital after an attempted poisoning – at least according to McAfee’s personal Twitter feed.

    “I apologize for my three day absence but I was unconscious for two days at the Vidant Medical Center in North Carolina and just woke up,” McAfee tweeted on Friday morning. “My enemies maged [sic] to spike something that I ingested. However, I am more difficult to kill than anyone can possibly imagine. I am back.”

    McAfee then posted two photos showing him lying in a hospital bed. Accompanying the photos was a threat to the alleged poisoners:

    “And for those who did this – You will soon understand the true meaning of wrath. I know exactly who you are. Youh [sic] had better be gone.”

    In another photo, John McAfee and his wife, Janice McAfee, pose for photos with their four middle fingers up in the air.

    McAfee gave no further details about the poisoning – like who did it, why he was poisoned, or which toxin they used.

    In any case, McAfee claims someone slipped something deadly into his food or drink at some mysterious location.

    The only other clue is that on Tuesday, McAfee wrote on Twitter that he would no longer be working with cryptocurrency ICOs or recommending them “due to SEC threats.”

    “Due to SEC threats, I am no longer working with ICOs nor am I recommending them, and those doing ICOs can all look forward to arrest,” he tweeted. “It is unjust but it is reality. I am writing an article on an equivalent alternative to ICOs which the SEC cannot touch. Please have patience.”

    Several Twitter users asked McAfee which toxin the alleged attackers had used. McAfee responded that it “doesn’t matter” what they used because “they assumed it wouldn’t be found out.”

    One commenter called McAfee “Crypto Rasputin”. Other commenters expressed surprise that someone would try to kill the antivirus pioneer turned crypto evangelist.

    One commenter described McAfee’s tweets as “heavy acquisitions [sic]” and asked McAfee if they were “true facts or just being tough on Twitter.” McAfee actually responded to that tweet saying, “Wake the f*** up to the reality of the world you are living in.”

    In another tweet, McAfee revealed that he has survived 11 assassination attempts in his life – so this is hardly his first (alleged) attack.

    “Oddly, none of the assassins survived more than 2 months after the attempt. They all encountered bizarre accidents. It’s a strange f***ing world.”

    What on earth is going on with John McAfee? I have no idea. The guy has a history of odd behavior. It’s unclear why he would have faced 12 separate assassination attempts in his life, and it’s unclear why someone would try to have him killed today. Is it just a ploy for attention? Is McAfee trying to draw media to his potential presidential run in 2020?

    In any case, John McAfee clearly believes his assassins are on borrowed time and that they won’t live longer than two months. Stay tuned to see where this bizarre saga goes next.
