Has there ever been a presidential candidate more fascinated by violence than Donald Trump, who is reprising Clint Eastwood’s role of “Dirty Harry” at every stop?
To remind you:
At his rally in Sioux Center, Iowa, he boasted to his flash mob of loyalists that he could “stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters”.
He barked he was so outraged by the speakers at the Democratic National Convention that he wanted to hit them in the head again and again to make their heads spin.
He has complained that there was no point in having nuclear weapons unless you could use them because he didn’t want to be the last to use them.
He is so protective of gun rights that only the owners could prevent Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices who agreed to abolish gun ownership. (Lie, lie lie – and dangerously so.)
“I have to say, in terms of politics there is few things, and I happen to think that if [the media] l did even bring this up, I think i’t’s a good thing for me,” he said on Fox. “Because it’s going to tell people more about me with respect to the Second Amendment….because Hillary Clinton wants to essentially abolish [!} the Second Amendment.”
In its summer of discontent with female employes lining up to complain about the network’s culture of misogyny, Trump finds ready witness from Fox icon Sean Hannity, a shipwreck of adulation for the billionaire, regardless of threats and derangement. On that score, Hannity’s colleague, Greta van Susteren, advocates her standard of morality at whatever cost. She said any Republican senator or congressman who didn’t support Trump is guilty of an act of immorality.
Lock her up.
