Trump Advisor Calls For Hillary Clinton To Be Executed
July 20, 2016

New Hampshire State Representative Al Baldasaro said in an interview that Hillary Clinton "should be put on the firing line and shot for treason," according to Buzzfeed News.

According to trackers, Baldasaro is the third delegate at the convention to threaten Secretary Clinton. After Governor Christie's horrendous faux monkey trial last night, I'm certain there are likely to be more.

This isn't the first time death threats have been leveled. Earlier this week, West Virginia Rep. and United Airlines pilot Michael Folk called for Clinton to be hanged for treason, too.

There are some lines that should not be crossed in partisan politics, no matter which side you're on. Threatening the life of a candidate is one.

I might call Donald Trump a fascist, but I would not call for him to be hanged, jailed, or threatened in any way. I simply want his candidacy to be crushed at the ballot box.

This is unacceptable, un-American behavior.

Here's Trump, calling Baldasaro his "favorite vet, the king."

And here's Baldasaro, doubling down on it, but allowing that the electric chair would be fine too.
