After Donald Trump suggested that gun owners could prevent Hillary Clinton from eradicating the Second Amendment, leftists claimed he’s calling for her assassination.
“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said Tuesday during a rally in Wilmington, N.C. “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.”
As expected, the authoritarian left quickly attacked Trump over the statement by claiming the GOP nominee was “darkly hinting” at “using violence to stop Hillary.”
“Did Trump just suggest that Hillary Clinton could be assassinated?” Wrote columnist EJ Montana.
Raw Story was also triggered by Trump.
“The statement implies that Americans can stop Hillary Clinton from appointing judges by exercising their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms,” Raw Story wrote. “The darker implication here is that Americans could use political violence to stop Clinton should she become president.”
And, hilariously, the site Occupy Democrats claimed Trump was acting “treasonous” while also defending Clinton, the former Secretary of State who sold government favors to third-world dictators in exchange for “donations” to the Clinton Foundation.
“It just goes to show that Trump will stop at nothing to put himself into the White House, and that he has no qualms about inciting political violence and further undermining the democratic process of our political system,” said contributor Colin Taylor, who of course didn’t have a problem with the Democratic National Committee undermining the voting process to steal the nomination from Bernie Sanders.
Mediaite, however, was more objective in its reporting.
“People on Twitter are already speculating that Trump was suggesting disturbing ‘Second Amendment solutions’ on Clinton herself, but it’s possible he meant either gun rights advocates halting her choices or making sure they don’t confiscate the guns,” correspondent Josh Feldman wrote.
Trump’s campaign said the real estate mogul was referencing the strength of Second Amendment advocates.
“It’s called the power of unification – Second Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power,” Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller said in a statement. “And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”
