From offensive to reckless

I think Donald Trump has already been reckless in his campaign, but calls are growing to put a stop to it and him.

Even Fox News are seriously questioning Trump’s actions and over the top oral outbursts.

Trump accused of advocating violence against Clinton with ‘2nd Amendment’ remark

Trump seems to suggest people use gun rights to stop Clinton

Donald Trump was accused Tuesday of advocating violence against Hillary Clinton, as he warned voters at a North Carolina rally about what a Clinton presidency would mean for the Second Amendment – though the Trump campaign later rejected the characterization of his remarks.  

The candidate made the comments after telling voters in Wilmington that his Democratic rival wants to “abolish” the Second Amendment.

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” he said.

Trump then added, “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

Almost immediately, social media lit up with accusations that Trump was essentially calling for someone to kill Clinton.

Later Tuesday, Trump told Fox News’ “Hannity” that he was referring to the political power of gun rights advocates. 

“This is a political movement,” Trump said. “This is a strong powerful movement, the Second Amendment. Hillary wants to take your guns away. She wants to leave you unprotected in your home.

“And there can be no other interpretation,” Trump said of his remarks. “I mean, give me a break.”

Trump’s campaign also slammed the “dishonest media” for the characterization of his comments.

He uses the media to put highly questionable messages out there and then blames the media for reporting and interpreting what he says.

It’s no wonder the media are not very supportive of him.

Some officials, including Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., went so far as to suggest the Secret Service investigate.

An agency spokesperson told Fox News, “The Secret Service is aware of the comment,” but would not say whether an investigation had been launched.

Michael Hayden, the former CIA director who has come out against Trump, also said on CNN: “If anybody else had said this, they’d be out in the parking lot in a police wagon being questioned by the Secret Service.”

Whether Trump wins or loses things could get out of hand and very ugly.

This is just one more response to his latest attention seeking moment.

Tomorrow’s front page THIS ISN’T A JOKE ANYMORE: The News says, Trump must end his campaign


I doubt either Trump will end his campaign or the GOP will abandon him (it has become seriously damaging farce if the do, seriously damaging farce if they don’t) – yet at least.

But it’s looking more likely as time goes by that some sort of train wreck will be the result. The only question is whether the crash will be quick or if it will be drawn out.
