Only Donald knows what he really meant today when he suggested that the 2nd Amendment people could stop Hillary. But I will say this, if he meant what at least half of the people in this country believes he did (including some with a serious stake in this dreadful kind of game), the man should just pull himself out of the presidential race right now. We can’t have one candidate sending out death threats to another one in the heat of a political battle. That’s something that should be left to politicians going against each other in some Third World country.
Sadly, based on the way that some of our citizens have been acting of late, we are not too far from a Third World country now. A recent poll says that almost 70% of trump’s supporters believe that the coming elections are going to be rigged. So when he sends out dog whistles and makes reckless statements like the one he did today, is it that far-fetched to think that his minions with their pitchforks are coming next?
The problem with all of this is, of course, that we could even believe that a man running to be president of the United States could make such an outrageous statement in the first place. It must be really hard to be a trump translator these days. Your crazy leader says something that is totally out of bounds and it is your job to clean up behind him.
Poor Mike Pence must feel like Fritz, Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s trusty assistant, whose job it was to make sure that the monster did not get out of hand.
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks…. as the crowd began to boo. He quickly added: “Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”
I think the monster is already on the loose.
