Did I hear that right?
He really crossed the line with that one. I hope he gets called out by many more.
This bloviating fleshbag just crossed the line and should be arrested for treason!
I agree. Enough is enough.
It’s more than enough. He is being widely condemned and needs to be investigated.
However, as much as we feel we are under siege by this maniac, his reckless speech is not treason. Treason consists only in waging war against the United States or adhering to giving aid and comfort to their enemies. Unless the US declares war on all Trump supporters, he’s OK on the treason front.
Yes, you heard it right. He called for the assassination of Hillary Clinton.
Statement from the Clinton campaign:
“A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”
The system is rigged, but in his favor: if you or I were publicly calling for the assassination of a candidate for office, the Secret Service would have picked us up for questioning. He’s breaking the law, according to the Brandenburg versus Ohio case, by advocating imminent lawless action and that his incitement is likely to produce lawless acts.
Watch the reaction of the man in red behind tRump. Now Paul Ryan is saying the statement was just a “joke gone bad” If a democratic contender said such a thing about a repub. all HELL would break loose. Where is Maleria, was she shipped back to Slovenia along with her Communist parents? How did her father, a prominent figure in the communist party in her hometown, get a visa? I hope tRump looses BIG, then his businessess go belly up.
He was shocked, and then he laughed.
In perhaps the worst attempt ever at damage control, Donald Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani attempted to defend Trump’s call yesterday for Hillary Clinton to be assassinated.
Giuliani told ABC’s “Good Morning America “that had Trump actually called for Hillary to be assassinated, the crowd would have gone wild. [my bold]
Let’s not forget that in 2008 Hillary implied Obama could face the same fate as Robert Kennedy, who was assassinated late in the presidential race.
Yes, I was very upset about that.
I’ll sleep better tonite after hearing Pat Robertson ‘splain it to ‘Murica.
This explains Trump
His campaign is a reality TV show where the sound bite is the hook. BUT reality TV has an editor to cut the bad jokes, things that went to far, TRUMP has no editor
The reality show persona is a very well made point. I think of a realty show I used to watch, Project Runway, which, in the first couple of iterations provided an interesting insight into creative processes and skills. Before long, it turned into something else in which conflict triumphed over art and talent. It became obvious the producers were not only setting up situations to encourage this but were also choosing some contestants who were likely to produce the “right” kind of sound bites.
“The fact that Trump didn’t mean to incite violence doesn’t preclude a finding that his comment would be reasonably likely to do just that.” This falls into the concept of Stochastic Terrorism:
Stochastic terrorism is the use of mass communications to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable. In short, remote-control murder by lone wolf.
This is what occurs when ISIS stirs random extremists halfway around the globe to commit a bombing or shooting.
The stochastic terrorist is the person who is responsible for the incitement.
IMO, Donald Trump is a stochastic terrorist.
