Over the weekend, the Hillary Clinton campaign and its corporate media shills again repeated ad infinitum the ridiculous talking point that GOP nominee Donald Trump is inciting violence against Hillary.
At a rally on Friday, Trump suggested that Hillary’s security should have their guns taken away because that’s what Hillary wants for the rest of America.
“I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm … I think they should disarm immediately,” Trump said on Friday. “Take their guns away, she doesn’t want guns. Let’s see what happens to her.”
While any sane rational person understands that Trump is making about about double standards, the Hillary campaign and the media used his words to suggest Trump wants to see Hillary assassinated.
When prompted during an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, Democratic vice-presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine said that he believes it was a call for violence against Clinton.
“I do believe that, Chris,” Kaine said. “I was stunned when I saw it, although he’s done it before.”
Kaine was referring to a similar situation a few weeks back when Trump said “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment… By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Though the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

The Clinton campaign and the media immediately began spreading the talking point that Trump was calling for Clinton’s assassination.
Ironically, back in 2008, Clinton actually did suggest that then presidential candidate, and her rival, Barack Obama would be assassinated.
The Hillary campaign, and the media just will not let it go, again jumping on the stupid notion that Trump is literally asking for someone to KILL Clinton.
“He is using language that is an incitement to violence or an encouragement of violence, or at least being kind of cavalier and reckless about violence, and that has no place in any election, especially an election to be president,” Kaine said.
Host Chris Wallace again asked Kaine if he truly believed Trump was calling for violence.
“I do,” he said. “When you look at a series of these comments that he’s making, I do believe it is an incitement or at a minimum an expression of indifference to whether violence would occur. This is a pattern that has been repeated over and over again, and I think it doesn’t belong in any race, much less a race to be president of this country.“
Other corporate media hacks picked up on Kaine’s assertion.
Martha Raddatz, host of ABC’s “This Week” said the message sounded “like a threat or encouraging violence,” and asked her guest Mike Pence to explain Trump’s words.
“That’s absolute nonsense,” Pence said, adding “His comment was that if she didn’t have all that security, she’d change her attitude about the right to keep and bear arms. And I’ll bet that’s probably true.”
“And any suggestion otherwise — regarding Secretary Clinton, just nonsense,” Pence urged.

The issue was again raised on Fox News Sunday as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was forced to defend Trump’s comments, again having to point out the obvious.
“He was trying to make a point about Hillary Clinton wanting to have one set of rules for herself and another set for the American people,” Christie said.
Christie said Kaine’s assertion was “desperate” and “beneath him.”
“He should be ashamed of himself,” Christie said.
“When a race gets tight, even a guy like Tim Kaine gets desperate. … It shows how desperate and scared the Clinton campaign is right now.”
