Donald Trump called for Hillary Clinton’s assassination by “Second Amendment people” and the Secret Service is taking his threat seriously enough to have discussed his remarks with his campaign. During a rally in North Carolina, Donald said, “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment folks, maybe there is. I don’t know.” Naturally, Trump is saying he didn’t say that thing we all heard him say. On Twitter, he’s petulantly stomping his little feet, saying, “Media desperate to distract from Clinton’s anti-2A stance. I said pro-2A citizens must organize and get out vote to save our Constitution!”
But that’s a lie, Donald. The Secret Service heard his remarks, too. The agency not only left a message on Twitter, they also confirmed to CNN that the Secret Service has spoken to the Trump campaign more than once in regards to his Second Amendment remarks.
The Trump campaign responded to the Secret Service, saying he did not intend to incite violence.

Former Secret Service Agent Jonathan Wackrow told CNN Wednesday that Donald’s remark was “potentially dangerous.”
“Words have consequences,” Wackrow said. “He now has the ability to come out and clarify it. We’re sitting here today at 11 o’clock, this is more than 14 hours later, still debating this,” he continued. “The issue’s not done, it’s not going away. Donald Trump, as the presidential candidate for the Republican Party, has to end it.”
Well, Donald has addressed it on Twitter as we noted above. He addressed the issue by lying about what he said even though the entire world heard him.
This morning, the Trump campaign scrambled to justify Donald’s violent rhetoric toward his opponent. A list of talking points was issued to allies in which they placed the blame of the GOP nominee’s threat on to Hillary Clinton and the liberal media™.
