Trump Comes Dangerously Close To Calling For Clinton's Assassination -- Again

In a rally, Donald Trump dished some Second Amendment advice for Hillary Clinton in front of his gun-toting base.

Not 6 hours since Trump finally decided to admit, publicly, that Barack Obama was indeed born in America, he went and said something truly insane. I suspect it is to fire up his base after having to accept that his racist, Birther narrative is false.

So what does he resort to? How about suggesting that maybe Hillary Clinton should have her Secret Service detail (the same one he has) drop their weapons and "see what happens."

You know, like if someone wants to Second Amendment her.

Here is a tweet from Rebecca Sinderbrand of the Washington Post, who actually heard this being said

Another tweet about the whole "disarm" suggestion

And finally

Fantastic! Let's encourage people to kill a Presidential nominee because we don't want to lose to a girl. Politics in 2016.

Update: Another astute observation:

Update 2: Statement from Robby Mook On Trump's Comments About Possible Violence Against Hillary Clinton:

Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for President, has a pattern of inciting people to violence. Whether this is done to provoke protesters at a rally or casually or even as a joke, it is an unacceptable quality in anyone seeking the job of Commander in Chief. This kind of talk should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate, just like it should be out of bounds for a presidential candidate to peddle a conspiracy theory about the President of the United States for five years. But we've seen again and again that no amount of failed resets can change who Donald Trump is. He is unfit to be President and it is time Republican leaders stand up to denounce this disturbing behavior in their nominee.
