Trump -- A New Low
Posted by Mary Catherine Dunphy (+2896) 5 years ago
In a campaign that can only best be described as "how low can you go" Donald Trump plumbed new depths yesterday when he obliquely suggested that maybe the 2nd Amendment people could take care of Hillary. “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Mr. Trump said, as the crowd began to boo. He quickly added: “Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”

At least the crowd had the decency to boo Trump.

If I had made that remark, you can be sure I'd be under investigation by the Secret Service for making a threat.

"Mrs. Clinton’s running mate, Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia, expressed disbelief. 'Nobody who is seeking a leadership position, especially the presidency, the leadership of the country, should do anything to countenance violence, and that’s what he was saying,' Mr. Kaine said in Austin, Tex. He called Mr. Trump’s remark 'a window into the soul of a person who is just temperamentally not suited to the task.'

I agree with Senator Kaine. Trump is dangerously out-of-control as a candidate and as a rational human being.

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—The Republican nominee Donald Trump tore into the media on Thursday for what he called their “extremely unfair practice” of reporting the things he says.

“I’ll say something at a rally and I look out and see all these TV cameras taking every word down,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “No one in politics has ever been subjected to this kind of treatment.”

“It’s unbelievable and, frankly, very unethical,” he added.

At a rally in Florida, the candidate lashed out at a TV cameraman whom he caught in the act of recording his words for broadcasting purposes.

“Look at him over there, picking up everything I’m saying, folks,” Trump shouted. “Get him out of here.”

In his interview with Fox, Trump hinted that he might drop out of this fall’s televised Presidential debates if the media continues its practice of reporting the things he says.

“I’ve always said that I would be willing to debate if I’m treated fairly,” Trump told Hannity. “But if the media keeps recording everything I say, word for word, and then playing it back so that everyone in the country hears exactly what I said, I would consider that very, very unfair.”

If you don't want people hearing "exactly what you say" you shouldn't speak. Isn't the point of speech so people can hear "exactly what you say"? Maybe he should use all that publicity to say something really profound like maybe that he has some actual plan for the presidency?
