Was Donald Trump Inciting Violence Against Hillary Clinton? Get Real!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Was Donald Trump inciting violence against Hillary Clinton when he spoke last Friday about disarming her bodyguards?  Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton`s vice presidential running mate, says so.
So what was Donald Trump`s supposedly threatening statement?

`She`s [Clinton`s] very much against the 2nd Amendment... I think that her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm, right?... Take their guns away. She doesn`t want guns. Take theirs and let`s see what happens to her. Take their guns away. OK? It would be very dangerous.`

Trump`s comment was obviously rhetorical.  He was not actually advocating that her bodyguards be disarmed.  He was pointing out that doing so would be absurd and very dangerous. "

Fox News

I can understand why Tim Kaine would distort Donald Trump`s statement, but why is the press twisting his words?

The mainstream press went absolutely bonkers when Trump made this fairly innocuous statement, you`d think he had put out a hit on Hillary.

Let`s get real, the Donald doesn`t do nuance or subtlety, if he wanted to incite one of his followers to kill Hillary he would have bellowed: Why don`t one of you put that old hag out of her misery and blow that 2nd Amendment-hating bitch to hell!

I agree with the Fox News reporter: Trump`s comment was rhetorical. He was pointing out the absurdity of trying to neutralize the Second Amendment, and the hypocrisy of a politician who wants to disarm private citizens surrounding herself with Secret Service agents who are armed to the teeth.

Trump`s rhetoric is a bit overheated, Hillary doesn`t want to ban the Second Amendment, but she is opposed to it. Hillary has vowed to appoint Supreme Court Justices who would restrict the right to bear arms.

I don`t advocate killing Hillary, but let`s send that awful hag to her retirement, and vote for anybody but her.
