Trump Just Made a “Joke” About Shooting Hillary Clinton?

Ok Republicans, so are you done now? Time to cash out for this term, do the right thing and rebuild your party from the ashes of the dumpster fire that is Donald Trump?

Because correct me if I am wrong but I believe the secret service will have to investigate a man they are protecting. H/T to Amanda Marcotte.

And correct me again if I am wrong but this sounds to me like incitement of violence. I know, I know, he will deny it, then he will say he was just joking or was just talking about the constitution because it’s on his mind because recently he was accused of not knowing it. So which is it? Was it a joke or did Trump just encourage gun advocates to shoot presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton?

Watch the video and decide for yourself but whatever you do, be sure to get out and vote this November because one thing is for sure, this election is no joke.

“Trump: “Hillary wants to abolish essentially abolish the 2nd Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick (boos) if she gets to pick her judges —nothing you can do folks. Although the 2nd Amendment people maybe there is, I don’t know.”

    I don’t think you’re the only ones, white-trash Santa back there had to pick up his jaw.

    According to the NYT, the Sentient Cheeto’s press machine responded:

    “Mr. Trump and his campaign did not treat his remark as a joke; instead, they insisted he was merely urging gun rights supporters to vote as a bloc against Mrs. Clinton. “The Second Amendment people have tremendous power because they are so united,” he told a CBS affiliate in North Carolina late Tuesday.”

    Which, of course, is total bullshit. The Cheeto’s comment was “if she gets…to pick her judges,” which implies she has already been elected, and any voting power held by Second Amendment advocates is moot.

    Trump’s dazzlingly brilliant strategy to alienate women and minorities will achieve an astonishing Electoral College victory… for Hillary Clinton.
