While speaking at a campaign rally in Miami, Florida (which he referred to as Ohio a few times), Donald Trump suggested once again that Hillary Clinton might be assassinated.
Telling another lie about Clinton, this time claiming she’s going to abolish the Second Amendment, Donald Trump put the cherry on his fail of a lying birther day by suggesting Hillary Clinton might be shot.
The Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Hillary Clinton’s Secret Service detail should disarm, “Take their guns away. Let’s see what happens to her.”
“I think that Clinton’s bodyguards should drop all weapons- they should disarm. They should disarm immediately, what do you think? Let’s see what happens to her.”
Trump said this after being called out for lying for blaming Hillary Clinton for his own birtherism. So this is how Trump tries to change the subject when he’s caught lying.
Donald Trump was spoken to by the Secret Service the last time he suggested his opponent might be shot if she won. Trump adviser Al Baldasaro told a radio host that Clinton “should be put in the firing line and shot for (fictional) treason, and later explained that he wanted Clinton shot for (fictional) treason, not assassinated.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you spell deplorable.
