It seems that as with many of his previous gaffes, Trump hasn’t learned his lesson yet. Even after all the backlash he received over his encouragement to the “Second Amendment people” to assassinate Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Trump still doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with suggesting that someone take her out.
In a speech in Manchester, New Hampshire earlier this week, Trump made a pathetic attempt to diss Democrat policies, making the very false argument that the African American community is somehow in more danger and chaos under leadership that actually represents and respects them. In his fear mongering dialogue, The Donald warned the black community that this would only get worse under the former Secretary of State’s leadership because she would take away guns from single African American mothers and everyone else in her so-called (non-existent) fight against the Second Amendment.
Trump’s speech got even more ridiculous when he claimed that Clinton couldn’t possibly relate to the black community because she’s lived such a privileged life away from their struggles (as if he somehow knows what it’s like to be discriminated against, targeted, and oppressed). This reminds us of the barf-inducing time not too long ago that Trump said he could definitely identify with African Americans because he, too, has been victimized (by the GOP).
Trump continued on to say that Clinton’s policies would only burden the black community. He said:
When you’re like the Clintons, getting $69 million in contributions from Wall Street and big banks…it’s easy to look down on the so-called little people–which is the way she views of the people of our country. It’s easy to look down on the devastation caused by our open borders, when you spend all of your time with wealthy donors and Hollywood celebrities. It’s easy to ignore the heartfelt concerns of communities about radical Islam entering our country when you spend your time hanging out with foreign dictators, in their lavish palaces and homes.
The hilarious thing about Trump trying to cater to African Americans is that he currently has less than 5% of the black vote. If anything, minorities are going to be the very reason Trump DOESN’T get elected!
But it gets worse. Then, Trump doubled down on his obsession with assassinating Clinton, proving once again that he is inarguably a psychopath that cares for no one but himself. He said this:
And it’s easy, no doubt, for Hillary Clinton to turn a blind eye to the ravages of crime when she has her own, personal, armed security force. Now she wants to essentially dismantle our Second Amendment. I think the first thing she should do is call up Washington and immediately request that her great Secret Service agents drop all weapons–let them walk around with no weapons–and let’s see how she feels about that when she wants to take away your guns.
Didn’t Trump learn through the last time he called for Clinton to be shot that it’s a serious offense worthy of an investigation from the Secret Service?! Obviously not.
