It would appear that Donald Trump now thinks he can ask people to, quite literally, take out Hillary Clinton.
While speaking to a crowd in Wilmington, North Carolina on Tuesday, Trump decided that he should do what he does best, incite rage.
As Trump rambled on and on making up things that Hillary supposedly wants to do, he directly insinuated that hardcore Second Amendment folks should kill Hillary to prevent her from doing anything about guns. He said:
“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick — if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”
Of course the Trump campaign noticing that people did not react to this very well, released a statement condemning the media and their interpretation of what he said, instead of Trump’s actual words. They said:
“It’s called the power of unification — 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power. And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”
Sure, that’s what Trump meant, voting against, not killing. Got it. That’s certainly not what his smug little face insinuated up at that podium, but as per usual the Trump campaign can’t own a mistake and doubles down declaring they meant something entirely different. Pathetic.
Robby Mook from the Clinton Campaign had his own response:
“This is simple — what Trump is saying is dangerous. A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”
Which is exactly what he did, and not only should he be condemned, he should be approached by Secret Service for suggesting such a horrific act be perpetrated on a former FLOTUS, Secretary of State, and competing candidate.
Enough is enough. Trump is a danger to all of humanity.
