Trump supporters wonder why they are called deplorable. This is a perfect example of why.
At a Trump rally in Cincinnati, Ohio, Trump supporter Dan Bowman told the Wall Street Journal that, “Hillary needs to be taken out.”
Bowman continued, “If she gets into government, I’ll do everything in my power to take her out of power — which, if I have to be a patriot, I will.”
That’s a clear threat against Clinton.
When asked to clarify his remarks, Bowman told the WSJ that they could “take it any way you want to take it.” Which basically means that what he said is a threat, no getting around that. Bowman was asked flat-out whether his comment was a physical threat to Clinton, and he said, “I don’t know, is it?”
Bowman also spoke with The Boston Globe, and told them that if Clinton wins, “I hope we can start a coup. She should be in prison or shot. That’s how I feel about it.”
