Donald Trump Threatens Hillary Clinton With Violence Again

I knew Donald Trump was growing increasingly desperate, like Benito Mussolini himself.

Before he expired from a bad case of lead poisoning, and was hung up to dry.

For it couldn't have been easy having to kill his own campaign.

But who knew that dirty old man is now so afraid of being humiliated by Hillary Clinton. 

He would suggest that his grubby supporters might kill her...

If her bodyguards were disarmed. 

Donald J. Trump once again raised the specter of violence against Hillary Clinton, suggesting Friday that the Secret Service agents who guard her voluntarily disarm to “see what happens to her” without their protection.

“I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons,” Mr. Trump said at a rally in Miami, to loud applause. “I think they should disarm. Immediately.” He went on: “Let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away, O.K. It’ll be very dangerous.”

Which couldn't be more disgusting or more cowardly.

But then why should we be surprised?

When his birther lies are being exposed.

Mr. Trump is probably hoping to reassure voters that he is edging into the mainstream, that he is not just the reckless, cynical bully of the Republican primaries. But the birther lies cling to him as tightly as his nativist hallucinators.

After he tried to pin the birther smear on her, Mrs. Clinton called it what it is: an “outrageous lie” intended to “delegitimize our first black president.” Mr. Trump delegitimized his own candidacy instead.

So are his claims that he is a successful businessman. 

Lost contracts, bankruptcies, defaults, deceptions and indifference to investors—Trump’s business career is a long, long list of such troubles, according to regulatory, corporate and court records, as well as sworn testimony and government investigative reports. Call it the art of the bad deal, one created by the arrogance and recklessness of a businessman whose main talent is self-promotion.

And with every day that passes he looks more like a Con man and a crackpot, than a serious candidate.

When he is not looking like a Nazi, or sounding like one.

Like his son Donald Jr.

Donald Trump Jr. made a reference to "warming up the gas chamber" while complaining about how the treatment his father has received by the political press compares to coverage of Hillary Clinton.

But yes, there can be no doubt that Trump is now gassing his own campaign.

Hillary Clinton's polls are already rebounding.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump by 4 percentage points, and her recent bout with pneumonia doesn’t appear to have scared away her supporters, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.

And while I sometimes wonder what might happen if Trump's bodyguards were disarmed, I'd rather not. Because I don't believe in violence.

So let's just use his murderous words and his ghastly record against that dirty old man.

Until he bleeds orange. Or screams uncle. 

Or ends up where he belongs...

CNN TONIGHT Sept. 16, 2016


LEMON: Jeff, there was tremendous reaction and fear after he said that in August. Why would he -- the question is, why would he repeat anything that sounded even vaguely threatening?

JEFF ZELENY, CNN SENIOR WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENT: Well, Don, he has talked about the Second Amendment several times at speeches and rallies and he talks about her bodyguards, how they should be disarmed.

One, they're Secret Service agents and he has the exact same contingent. So it's not that she has some type of separate bodyguards. But, two, I heard him say something different in Miami tonight. It was six words, "Let's see what happens to her." And I think that escalates it to the next level here. It's something that the Secret Service did not like it when he said it the first time in the sound we showed there. And they certainly won't like this.

I think -- I mean, Donald Trump, we know, after watching him at so many rallies, he feeds off the crowd. And I think given his earlier event in Washington this morning, when he clearly did not, at least, it seemed to me, did not want to be giving that speech and was not feeding off that crowd, he fed off that crowd tonight, and they were sort of giving him a call in response. And, you know, "Let's see what happens to her."

But to me, it sounds like it crosses a line. 53 days before an election, talking about anyone's security, certainly, an argument about the Second Amendment is fair game, although she does not want to take away people's guns. That's not her position. But saying, "Let's see what happens to her," I think it crosses a line and I think he'll have to -- that this is going to be revisited.

hi David...It's bad enough for Trump to claim that Clinton wants strike down the Second Amendment, when she doesn't. But suggesting that one of his supporters might shoot her if her bodyguards are disarmed, is beyond the pale. It's the death of decency, and thug politics at its worst. Trump is of course just trying to pleasure his rabid Hillary hating NRA supporters. But hopefully that incitement to violence will disgust enough decent Americans, and that dangerous demagogue will end up shooting himself in the foot...

Ohhh... So there IS a legitimate use for firearms after all!


So, it turns out you're not anti-gun at all! You're very pro-gun... pro-gun just so long as you control where those guns are pointed.

Simon said...

hi anon...what are you talking about? Of course there are legitimate uses for firearms, but political violence is not one of them. And I have NEVER encouraged violence against anyone on the right, and I never will...
