Today at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, Donald Trump joked about second amendment fanatics assassinating President Hillary Clinton (or, possibly, a justice she appoints) to prevent her from putting liberal justices on the Supreme Court.
Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the second amendment—by the way, and if she gets to pick—[booing]—if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the second amendment people, maybe there is, I dunno.
Surely this will only further boost his incredibly successful campaign into a stratosphere of popularity not yet reached by any candidate in this country’s history.
