Hillary Clinton is shocked and horrified at Donald Trump’s suggestion that his Second Amendment supporters could take care of the candidate to prevent her from appointing judges if elected president. His veiled call for an assassination attempt drew an immediate response from the Democratic nominee.
Donald Trump‘s appalling comment that seemed to encourage gun rights advocates to take out Hillary Clinton, 68, drew a swift response from his Democratic opponent, who tweeted out the statement from her campaign adviser Robby Mook that read, “A person seeking to be the President of the United States should not suggest violence in any way.”

So true, but then again this is a guy who is pro-torture so promoting violence is just in his nature. What’s really disgusting is that the 70-year-old seemed to hint at a call to arms to assassinate Hillary during a Wilmington, NC rally Aug. 9. He first outright lied and told that crowd that,”Hillary essentially wants to abolish the Second Amendment,” before saying, “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people maybe there is.” What a disgrace! He’s encouraging gun rights activists to take her out! This is something so outrageous that it has to be the worst thing Donald has said in this election process, and he’s had plenty of horrible comments that would destroy any other candidate’s presidential hopes.
Hillary’s response actually came across very tempered and measured, and it’s obvious she chose her words carefully. But with the incredibly inflammatory language Donald used against her, we really hope she addresses it further on the campaign trail because he didn’t just threaten violence, he practically encouraged it! Voters need to be reminded over and over about what he said.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked by Donald’s latest comment? Do you think he’s encouraging people to assassinate Hillary?
