Donald Trump recently went too far, even for him. He not-so-subtlely hinted that Hillary Clinton could be stopped by shooting her or the Supreme Court Justices she appoints. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://www.tytnetwork.com/join/
“Donald Trump said at a rally today that “second amendment people” might be the only ones who could stop Hillary Clinton, specifically her ability to nominate Supreme Court justices:
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the second amendment people, maybe there is.”
The remark, referring to the constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to bear arms, was seen by many critics as an incitement to violent action. Threatening violence against presidential candidates is a federal crime. In a statement, the US Secret Service said it is “aware” of Trump’s remarks.
The statement, delivered at a campaign event in Wilmington, NC, is provocatively ambiguous. On Twitter, some said it was a suggestion of gun violence against Clinton. Others said Trump was talking about shooting Clinton’s nominated judges.
Regardless, the reference to political violence, even if it was only in jest, is unprecedented in recent US history and is likely to dominate headlines in the coming days and perhaps longer.”*
