Trump Hints To Gun Nuts: Assassinate Hillary

This just came out in The Guardian:
Donald Trump has hinted at the assassination of Hillary Clinton by supporters of gun rights.

The Republican nominee was speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, about the next president’s power to appoint supreme court justices. “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” he said, adding: “Although the second amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.

The second amendment to the constitution protects the right of Americans to bear arms. Trump has accused his Democratic rival of wanting to abolish it, a charge that she denies.

“This is simple—what Trump is saying is dangerous,” said Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook. “A person seeking to be the president of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.

This is getting out of hand. Republicans: when are you going to remove this reckless sociopath from the top of your ticket?


  1. It's unclear that they could even if they wished to do so. The laws of the various states that hold primaries generally say that the person who wins the Republican nomination will be the person who is the Republican nominee on the ticket. And Trump already won the Republican nomination. They can't un-nominate him. It doesn't work that way.

    The time to un-nominate him would have been last fall. But that would have required Republicans to take him seriously, which they didn't, until it was too late.

    1. BadTux, I understand their legal predicament. But I also understand that while GOPers are demonstrably unintelligent, they are also indisputably crafty... and many of them are wealthy. If they really wanted to be rid of him, perhaps they could pay him a few million to go away.
