You know, this almost sounds like Donald Trump is hinting at using a “Second Amendment remedy” to protect the Supreme Court from Hillary Clinton:

Hillary wants to abolish — essentially abolish — the Second Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges — nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people maybe there is, I dunno. But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day. If, if Hillary gets to put her judges — right now we’re tied.

We like how the guy in the red shirt turns to his wife and goes WHOOOOAH and then they both giggle.

So there’s Trump, making what maybe he thinks is a “joke” about blowing away Hillary Clinton — and then probably Tim Kaine, too, since he would also appoint the wrong judges. Was that a threat? We mean, maybe it sounded like a threat. Or not, according to some quick-thinking Trumpeez. This one’s masterful:

It sounded like a threat, right? WRONG. That wasn’t a threat. A real THREAT is printing up t-shirts where you Photoshop the heads of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton onto some Renaissance art.

But we are probably overthinking this. Donald Trump, he’s just a guy who says things. Don’t take him so seriously when he suggests somebody with a gun could save the Second Amendment from Hillary Clinton. Besides, for the sake of efficiency, Trump has several Secret Service agents right there who can question him.

That oversensitive, mentally unstable Hillary Clinton’s staff got their old lady pants in a bunch over Trump’s suggestion that someone shoot her. Not that he said “shoot her.” He was simply expressing himself using his First Amendment rights. Do YOU have a problem with the First Amendment? Maybe you’d like your name and address posted on the internet as a supporter of Tyranny!

Don’t worry, kids, Trump never said anything about shooting anyone. He was talking about the amazing UNITY of Second Amendment people, not their marksmanship:

We dunno, Donald. How can we twist your words when they never come out straight to start with? Anyway, guess that “pivot” to being “presidential” didn’t stick, did it?

If you’re thinking maybe you’d like to put your Outrage Dollars to some good use at Trump’s duplicitous bafflegab, might we suggest a donation to Americans For Responsible Solutions, the new group promoting reasonable regulation of firearms, founded by Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly? She’s a gun owner who’s had direct experience with what happens when someone who never should have been allowed to get a gun, gets a gun.
