Trump’s deplorables just keep getting more violent.
As much as Trump’s supporters complain about being referred to as deplorable, you would think they would stop doing things like threatening to murder Hillary Clinton.
But they have not only continued to make such threats, they’re now threatening medieval violence against her as well.
At a rally in Virginia Beach, Virginia on Saturday, a Trump supporter was spotted holding up a stake with Hillary Clinton’s head on it.

Trump supporters are already trying to spin this by saying it’s simply Hillary’s head on a cane or a stick, but that really doesn’t matter. The point is that Hillary’s head looks like it is on a pike, which just further proves that the Secret Service needs to work harder than ever before to protect the Democratic nominee.
This is an escalation of violent threats that Trump supporters have been making against Hillary Clinton for months as Trump continues to drill into his supporters that the election is “rigged” in her favor.
First, they just wanted her in jail. Then they decided that shooting her is acceptable. Now they want to behead her like something ISIS does and parade her head across the country as some sort of sick prize.
As Election Day approaches, you can bet there will be more threats like this towards Hillary Clinton. And if she wins, you have to wonder whether Trump supporters really will try to start a bloody rebellion.
