Trump made comments about “2nd amendment people” stopping Clinton — it’s been perceived as an assassination remark. Trump claims it was him talking about the gun lobby. Meanwhile, in the real world there’s people who are taking what Trump says at face value.
A redneck called into C-SPAN to say the following – video follows:
“Number one, Mr. Trump was not threatening assassination of Hillary. But what he was implying and could happen is if Hillary got her way and did do away with Second Amendment rights, there are a lot of us who are gun owners who are going to object to that very strongly. And since we do have firearms, it might if it comes down to it be us having to defend our rights with those guns, just as the revolutionaries did in the Revolutionary War.”
Paul Ryan Claims Trump Was Just Joking About Having Hillary Killed
Paul Ryan, Republican Speaker of the House claims that Trump was just joking when he said that Clinton should be assassinated.
Via Occupy Democrats: True to form, Ryan brushed off Trump’s latest foot-in-mouth episode as well. According to the Speaker, Trump’s suggestion that “Second Amendment people” are the only ones who can stop Hillary Clinton was just a “joke gone bad.”
At a press conference earlier today:
I’ve been a little busy today. I heard about this Second Amendment quote. It sounds like just a joke gone bad. I hope he clears it up very quickly. You should never joke about something like that. I didn’t actually hear the comments, I only heard about those comments,” Ryan said.
Elizabeth Warren DESTROYS Donald Trump after he threatened Hillary Clinton
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts was full of outrage and indignation towards Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee after he goaded his supporters to use violence against Hillary Clinton if she wins the presidency in November.
Warren took to Twitter to lambaste Trump’s rhetoric he used during a campaign rally in Wilmington, NC. Trump stated Hillary Clinton wanted to “abolish” the Second Amendment. He further stated, “By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don’t know. In response Warren tweeted:
@real DonaldTrump makes death threats because he’s a pathetic coward who can’t handle the fact that he’s losing to a girl.
Warren continued to poke fun at the faux-billionaire:
Your reckless comments sound like a two-bit dictator, @realDonaldTrump. Not a man who wants to lead the greatest democracy on the planet.
Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren have had an ongoing Twitter feud for months. In the past, Trump has described the Massachusetts senator as “goofy” and as “Pocahontas” in reference to Warren’s claim that her ancestry partly includes Native American heritage — something which has been hotly debated. Conversely Warren says Donald Trump is a “bully” and a “little man” who is only in the political arena for his own self-interests. In something out of character for Trump, he has yet to respond to Warren’s comments, but if his past behavior is an indication of the future, the bad blood between these two politicos will continue to be aired in public.
