Just when you think Trump couldn’t get any lower, out pops his golden shovel and the Republican presidential nominee just digs a deeper hole for himself.
No one knows what rock bottom is for the real estate tycoon, turned TV celebrity, turned cult leader, but suggesting his gun-loving, “Second Amendment” enthusiasts resort to gun violence in order to stop a President Clinton from appointing liberal judges has to be pretty close.
Of course, Trump’s rabid group of followers is defending him and blaming the media for deliberately misrepresenting his words in order to stir up a controversy where none exists.
Here are Donald Trump’s exact words:
“Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know,” Trump said.
This is not the first time Trump has spoken about “Second Amendment” rights or remedies.
At an Arizona rally this past April, Trump told a cheering crowd, “We’re going to win with our Second Amendment. We’re gonna win big league with our Second Amendment!”
If you believe many Trump supporters are nothing more than textbook cultists hanging on to his every word, be worried … be very worried.
Trump may have once just been a bombastic buffoon and a great source of entertainment, but he has now clearly evolved into a national security threat. Realizing this, some responsible members of his own party are determined to stop him at all costs.
By alienating moderate Republicans, independents, women, African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Muslims, the disabled, and veterans, there is no way Trump could ever win a general election.
So what could he possibly be thinking?
The one conclusion many have drawn from Trump’s dangerous and erratic behavior is that he is building up his base for a media empire to be created once he is crushed at the polls come November.
Of course, Trump will claim the system was rigged against him and that he’s still a winner. And his cultists will believe it.
