It wouldn't be surprising since a formula for make a deadly chemical-gas weapon was posted as a way to make your own glow sticks for a Bernie rally not that long ago.

With a choice of Halloween decorations, it's better to have skeletons in a closet than bats in a belfry.


Unfortunately, Hillary has both. Plus she can be blackmailed out the wazoo.

Ironically, however, she's one of the few people in the country who HASN'T suggested shooting Trump.

Funny how this happened in 2008.
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/24/us/politics/24clinton.html?_r=0
Then there is this article which funnily enough look what the Clintons running mate says.

My interpretation of that was that supporters of the second amendment should not vote for Hilary. However in 2008, it is very hard to interpret what Hilary said as anything other than, maybe Obama will get shot.

People will defend him no matter what. It is insane. He was saying if Hillary was president, she would pick liberal judges, and there would be nothing (right wing Americans) could do...at that point, when she IS president, he was talking about her being president in the context of the follow up comment, which was "but second amendment people (people referring to his audience), so maybe there is".


People need to stop defending Trump. Every week he says inappropriate and ignorant things and people gotta make excuses for him and give him a free pass every time. If any other candidate was this bad, they'd never make it far in the primaries.


Well said!

For anyone making excuses for Trump also check out the following...

http://definitions.uslegal.com/e/endangerment/
http://definitions.uslegal.com/c/culpable-negligence/


A former CIA head said pretty much the same today while the Secret Service and CIA themselves have admitted having "talks" with Trump about it. Ironically the description of Reckless Endangerment describes both his attack on Judge Curiel and his comment to supporters to "take out" protesters at his rallies.

Ah, I changed my post.

I reread the text from the article in the OP. I reread it multiple times. Maybe Trump really was talking about gun rights enthusiasts making a difference with voting, but I doubt it because it also can be interpreted as "You can always shoot her!". That, and I doubt it because it is Trump and he says outrageous stuff on the regular.

Thing is, Donald Trump is lousy at speaking at the podium. He can not say things intelligently. So maybe he was talking about "second amendment people" or maybe he was saying "But hey, there is the second amendment, people, if you know what I mean *wink*"

He clearly said "AFTER Hillary Clinton appoints her Supreme Court judges" which is why both the Secret Service and CIA are "talking" to him today. There's no doubt in their minds . He already threatened his own party if he lost the primary and attacked anyone who "dared" run against him so this should come as no surprise.

You see the entire issue with this is people will interpret what he said in whatever way fits there agenda. The thing I would like to continue to point out is Hilary did the same sort of thing back in '08 towards Obama in reference to the Bobby Kennedy assassination. While she was criticized heavily at the time. It seems now Trump is the worst kind of person for ever saying such a thing when she herself did the same exact thing. While both candidates definitely have flaws and a lot of them. Let's not get too hypocritical.

Yeah, I think he was making the inappropriate comment many think he was. But at the same time, he can not speak intelligently, and he has problems being coherent when expressing thoughts and ideas, so possibly he was talking about gun rights enthusiasts making a difference come voting time.


So on one hand, it could be 'Donald saying bad shit again', or on the other hand, it is 'Donald can't speak for shit again', so...neither work in his favor.

Trump was insinuating assassination. He was most likely joking but to say he was referring to having 2A people exercise their voting rights is asinine. Read his quote- he referred to the 2A people fixing the problem AFTER Clinton is President and after Clinton appointed Supreme Court Justices. He made an inappropriate joke. I don't believe he meant it seriously but it was still inappropriate, and if one of us made that type of joke, we would be in trouble with the law.

There is a huge difference between what Clinton said in '08 and what Trump suggested yesterday. Clinton did not suggest anyone assassinate Obama, she was asked the reason why she stayed in the campaign when it appeared she has all but lost and cited a historical incident which the winning candidate was assassinated. It was an obtuse statement, but she did not once suggest or even insinuate that any of her supporters should kill Obama. Trump suggested that once Hilary became president and appointed her liberal judges that the 2A crowd fix the problem.

This is yet another example of reckless speech on Trump's side. I'm also unnerved by the amount of people who react to things Trump says that are unconstitutional, dangerous or outright illegal by saying "WELL HILLARY IS UNTRUSTABLE SHES CROOKED!!11!!111" Like, this guy has basically dozens of illegitimate children, evidence that his fortune was mob money, a history of corrupt and illegal business practices and one of the most inconsistent campaigns I've seen in my life. I'm sorry, but one of them is more crooked than the other, and that is Donald, not Hillary. People are always saying things like: "Well, if you're not voting for Donald, then who are you voting for...Hillary!?!?" Yes. Because she's better at being a politician than Trump. Just as I think Obama is a better politician than McCain or Romney.

I'm going to interpret this statement as I expect Donald would mean it: that someone should kill Hillary with a gun. This is the same guy who makes fun of veterans for being injured and disabled people, so I would not put him above the same kind of rhetoric I see angry SJWs who want people that disagree with them to be thrown in jail.

So, according to you, Trump was possibly talking about gun rights enthusiasts making a difference with voting... after Hilary becomes President and has appointed liberal judges?? Is that what you are suggesting? Think hard about what you suggest. If Trump was referring to voting, wouldn't he reference the 2A crowd to act BEFORE Hilary is elected, not AFTER?
