Donald Trump has made yet another crazy comment, but this time it involves an insinuated assassination of Hillary Clinton — and voters are going crazy over it! See the angry tweets bashing Donald right here!
Donald‘s controversial statement came when he was talking about Hillary‘s stance on the second amendment at a North Carolina rally on Aug. 9. While he didn’t outright say that Hillary should be assassinated (or even say the word himself), he hinted that the “second amendment people” could do something to stop Hillary from abolishing the gun-related amendment. And the worst part? He made the comment without hesitation, even smirking as if to insinuate he wants someone to shoot his opponent!
As one of the most dangerous things Donald, 70, has ever said, of course voters were shocked to hear such a thing come out of Donald’s mouth. People immediately took to Twitter to express their concern over Trump’s hint at having Hillary, 68, assassinated, bashing the GOP candidate for saying such a “sick and dangerous” and “disturbing” thing. See some of the outraged responses below:
Trump joking about someone shooting Hillary is sick & dangerous. It’s how unbalanced people are inspired to murder. It trivializes violence.

Trump is a mortal danger. Today, he slyly hints some crazy follower would do well to murder his opponent. Tomorrow, who knows WHAT he’ll say

Claiming the election will be rigged, “jokingly” encouraging supporters to assassinate political opponents—Trump is undermining democracy.

Man, I step away from Twitter long enough to play football catch with my son. And Trump proves I can’t leave him alone for a moment.

Even in jest, it demonstrates once again that Trump is not a stable person and does not think beyond the tip of his nose

Few things more disturbing than Trump apologists trying to excuse away his insinuating assassination.

Trump just implied gun owners might use guns on HRC if not elected. Reckless. Not too late to rescind endorsement https://t.co/vIR6fEYond

Hillary’s campaign quickly responded to Donald’s controversial comment, calling it “dangerous” for a presidential candidate to suggest violence. But it wasn’t long before Donald’s campaign also released a statement, suggesting that the “dishonest media” had twisted what Trump actually meant. We’re not sure Donald’s latest comment can be topped, but then again there’s still three months until the election…plenty of time for him to say something else crazy, huh?
