Why Yes, Yes He Did

The headline asks:

Did Trump suggest gun owners threaten Clinton or the Supreme Court?

Do you really need it in so many words?

Here it is:

While talking about Supreme Court nominees, Trump told the Wilmington, North Carolina crowd that there was “nothing you can do” about appointments if the Democratic presidential nominee were elected.

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

A communications adviser for the Trump campaign later said Trump meant that “Second Amendment people” rally around him or vote accordingly.

Why this is poppycock: Why limit the rallying and voting only to “Second Amendment people”? Why not call on all GOP voters to do this. What’s so special about “Second Amendment people” that they should be singled out to stop Clinton from nominating certain types of judges. And, really, what good would rallying and voting do once Clinton  is in office?

But the really big giveaway is the “I don’t know” that punctuates his statement.

He doesn’t know what?

He knows; he’s verbally winking.

[Editorial note: I’m likely to be tougher on Trump this election — a little less “balanced” than in years gone by. I consider him dangerous. There’s no point pretending like “both sides do it” in 2016.]
