At Campaign Rally, Donald Trump Suggests Hillary Clinton Be Shot To Death

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump hit a new low today by suggesting at a campaign rally that “The Second Amendment” could prevent Hillary Clinton from choosing Supreme Court Justices as President of the United States.

In a video clip circulating today from a campaign event in Wilmington, NC, Trump jokes that the “Second Amendment, people” might be the only thing that could stop a President Clinton from selecting Supreme Court justices during her term.

This appears to be a fancy Trump way of saying to his “base” that she should totally be assassinated, and specifically, shot to death with a gun. Just like so many other Americans are shot to death with guns, here in America, land of abundant gun violence. It's a very hilarious joke! From a very funny guy who'd like to be our President. So funny.

Update: From the New York Times account, now up:

The Trump campaign released a statement insisting opaquely that Mr. Trump had been referring to the “power of unification.”

“Second Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power,” said Mr. Trump’s spokesman, Jason Miller. “And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”
