These Comments Led the Media to Believe Trump was Calling for Hillary to be Assassinated

The Democrat Media Complex is going berserk on Friday evening following comments Donald Trump made at a campaign rally in Miami where he was making a point in regards to liberal hypocrisy and the Second Amendment.

While Trump is no conservative, the liberal Republican was making a point that conservatives have made for quite some time. Why is it that the most anti-Second Amendment pushers, whether it’s politicians or Hollywood elites, are surrounded by armed guards, yet they want to take away the rights of ordinary Americans to protect themselves?

“I think that her [Hillary] bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm, alright? Alright? I think they should disarm. Immediately! What do you think, yes [pointing to someone in the audience]? Yes, ya. Take their guns away! She doesn’t want guns. And let’s see what happens to her? Take their guns away, okay? It would be very dangerous.” 

As is almost always the case, Trump could have made his case of anti-gun hypocrisy much more articulately (shocker), and the media is jumping all over the “And let’s see what happens to her?” and the “It would be very dangerous” comments, accusing Donald Trump of calling for the assassination of Hillary Clinton.

Media outlets like The Washington Post and MSNBC immediately pounced:

At the same time, others jumped on board, outraged at Trump’s comments, with one former adviser to Hillary Clinton, Peter Daou, calling for the Secret Service to get involved.

One has to wonder if Trump’s impromptu comments were designed to move the media away from its assassination with birtherism or if it’s just another case of “Trump being Trump” and sticking his foot in his mouth by saying things in a way that the Hillary Clinton and the campaign can use against him.

One thing we do know, there was no outrage from the leftstream media when Barack Obama said about his political opponents, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
