Donald Trump is best known for his grotesquely offensive comments, but luckily for the Talking Yam, his outrageous, unhinged, gish-galloping overshadows his duplicity, and we don't think of him as a candidate who believes he can have his cake and eat it too. He owns the talking out of both sides of his mouth department.
Take this tweet he sent out today:
I will be meeting with the NRA, who has endorsed me, about not allowing people on the terrorist watch list, or the no fly list, to buy guns.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2016
Being the master panderer, he takes two opposing positions and, he gets away with it. No one else can advocate for both sides of the sacrosanct Second Amendment; the NRA is an all or nothing group.
Trump is attempting to do precisely what President Obama proposed just a few weeks ago: he wants to negotiate with the NRA to ban certain people from purchasing weapons. Nobody gets in the way of the NRA's insane proliferation of guns and ammo, until now.
BREAKING: NRA says anyone on terrorism watchlist who tries to buy a gun should be investigated by the FBI and the sale delayed.

Although he'd never admit it, on this issue, he agrees with the Kenyan Usurper, the object of Trump's birther obsession, at least for now. It's likely though Trump will assert that it's always been HIS idea, because HE has the best ideas, the best words. The WT explains:
Since he announced his candidacy, Mr. Trump has taken solidly pro-gun positions when it comes to issues such as gun-free zones, and has said the terrorist attack in Orlando and the attack in Paris in November might have been mitigated if people had guns to fight back.
But he’s also appeared open in the past to preventing people on such watch lists from buying weapons.
This acrobatic feat wasn't all that simple, as LaPierre's group has never vacillated when it comes to selling MOAR GUNZ. The National Rifle Association is so powerful, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell emphatically asserted that any Supreme Court nominees must be approved, first and foremost, by the NRA, the 4th branch of government.
Trump has based a good portion of his campaign around a specific gun manufacturer, a company with German roots, just like his own. The manufacturer of the Black Mamba, the assault rifle used in Orlando's massacre, is Sig Sauer. This is yet another commonality he shares with the Third Reich: Guns and German manufacturing.
In 2014, Sig Sauer announced it would slash its German workforce by two-thirds and produce more guns in the United States, (where annually, they produce close to half a million of their brand, which is also popular with law enforcement).
Last May, as Trump was poised to launch his presidential bid, he personally toured the Sig Sauer factory in New Hampshire, where the company makes most of its 74,000 semi-automatic rifles sold in the US market.
Here's an Instagram pic of Trump's big game animal-murdering sons with Sig Sauer representatives at a Shooting expo in Las Vegas, which is where he has a
klan rally planned this Saturday.
It's likely the NRA might make an exception for a certain kind of suspected 'terrorist,' as the Islamic 'extremist' is the best selling point for both GOP fear-mongering and pimping the wares of the NRA Death Merchants.
And so the discrimination based on religion continues. He's already blacklisted numerous ethnicities and has violated the First Amendment by revoking freedom of the press for those he doesn't like. Now he's softened the NRA on gun control measures? Terrifying.
Drumpenfuhrer is here, and he's mimicking the fascism that sparked World War II. That is, unless we learn from history and prevent this catastrophe from happening.
