“… “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” Trump said during a rally in North Carolina on Tuesday. “By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.” …”
I don’t believe Trump wants to encourage violence against Clinton, however his poor choice of words makes it easy to see why some people are upset over these remarks.
If this were simply a gaff I’d just write it off, but Trump keeps on doing stupid shit like this when there is lots and lots in Clinton’s past, policies and position statements, that could easily be used against her.
Now he’s trying to spin the uproar as media bias:
“… “Media desperate to distract from Clinton’s anti-2A stance,” he said on Twitter Tuesday evening. “I said pro-2A citizens must organize and get out vote to save our Constitution!” …”
No, that is not what you said. If that is what you meant you could have said something like this:
“Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment if she gets to pick her judges. That won’t happen if Second Amendment people turn out and vote for me in November.”
Was this hard? No.
Here’s my offer to the Trump campaign: Hire me and I’ll be your point man on gun issues. Just pay in cash, no checks or Trump steaks.
