I knew Donald Trump couldn’t go more than a few days without saying something outrageous. Today it was to suggest that one way to stop Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court justices if she becomes president is by assassinating her:
Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know, but… but I’ll tell ya what, that will be a horrible day.
If there are any historians out there who can recall a time when a candidate for a major political party suggested the assassination of their rival if they win, would you please let me know? Because I think this is a pretty historic moment.
This is your Republican Party, 2016.
