Did Trump just suggest that 2nd Amendment gun owners should assassinate Clinton?

    Yes, he did. And I am not even surprised. He cares nothing for the fate of our society.

    The secret service needs to investigate his dumb ass. They shouldn't be far.

    He better watch what he says, they might target him instead. After all, he's the one handing the election to Hillary.

    With all the heavyweight lined up against him, Trump's the one who should be worrying about a "plane crash" or "lone gunman."

    In the voice of many conservatives, time to ask...

    Why don't moderate Republican denounce violence by removing their endorsement of Trump?

    #GopForViolence?

    we'll make your heads spin so hard...

    “It’s called the power of unification,” Jason Miller, campaign spokesman, said in an email sent by the rapid response team. “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.”

    She isn't laughing, though. The path to the Whitehouse is getting clearer, but Trump is running a scorched earth campaign of sorts. Any American, regardless of party/team, should be ashamed and incensed at Trump's disregard for our civil society.

    Trump is a joke, but not a funny one.

    I feel sorry for the decent people working his campaign. Everyday just diminishes their personal integrity.

    That image is well worth repeating. For the Trump Lunatics who are going to say, "That's not what he meant! He wasn't advocating violence!" Just look at the expressions on the faces of the people seating behind Trump. They sure as hell took it that way. They look stunned. And you can bet some brain dead assholes running around like chickens with their heads cut off and loaded up with weapons are taking it that way. Incredible. Trump can't go more than a day without saying something that's simply stupid, or damaging to the interests of the United States overseas, or damaging our relations with our allies, or saying something dangerous. The fool can't make it more than a day. And this dangerous chump is the "man" who's the nominee of the Republican Party.

    Wow.

    The response is BS:

    After Clinton is president and has the power to appoint SC justices, how are the 2nd Amendment people going to politically block her appointments? He was implying violence.

    I don't know what's funnier...

    Former Trump supporters just now realizing how truly awful of a candidate he was.

    Him making an absolute mockery of a party he didn't belong to ten years ago.

    Or, the fact that many people, including me, said that he may be only running just to secure his good friend Hillary a spot in the whitehouse, which isn't too much of a stretch given the comedy taking place.


    Bravo, Mr. Trump, bravo. You have been the great beard, of sorts, a female has ever had.
