Donald Trump’s threat toward Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton even garnered attention from the Secret Service. Donald said during a rally in N.C., “Hillary wants to abolish—essentially abolish the Second Amendment. If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people—maybe there is, I don’t know.” Donald’s attempt to incite violence was so bad that his campaign issued talking points to address it. Trump surrogates are scrambling to justify their candidate’s violent rhetoric.
However, when you Donald’s supporters in the clip, they knew exactly what he meant.
A C-SPAN caller from Michigan on Wednesday displays that even Trump supporters did indeed interpret the GOP presidential candidate’s comments as a call for gun violence.
Raw Story reports:
But a C-SPAN caller from Michigan named Greg proved on Wednesday that even some of Trump’s supporters found the comments to be a call to arms.
“Number one, Mr. Trump was not threatening assassination of Hillary,” Greg declared. “But what he was implying and could happen is if Hillary got her way and did do away with Second Amendment rights, there are a lot of us who are gun owners who are going to object to that very strongly.”
“And since we do have firearms, it might if it comes down to it be us having to defend our rights with those guns, just as the revolutionaries did in the Revolutionary War,” the caller continued.
Greg added that he hoped “it never will come down to that.”
“And I would point out that [Trump] said right afterwards that would be a horrible day when that happened,” Greg said. “As far as the rest, it’s stated again and again how she would like gun confiscation in this country.” “If guns were bad in everybody’s hands, the body count would be higher,” he said, adding, “you’d have so many dead bodies.”
There has been an uptick of violent rhetoric targeting Hillary Clinton and Donald just added to that. His supporters have issued death threats before and Donald is now telling them that it’s OK to carry through with it. According to Donald’s supporter, his candidate meant that if Hillary is elected, paranoid conservatives would initiate a call to arms.
