Campaigning at one of his Super-spreader Covidpalooza rallies in Lansing, Michigan, Donald Trump gleefully predicted that Joe Biden will be assassinated.
He deludes himself into thinking this is why there is so much talk of the 25th Amendment...because DEMOCRATS need to be prepared for when Biden is "shot" and Kamala Harris ascends to power.
Why isn't the Secret Service hauling his ass off the stage right then and there? David Corn rightly asks on Twitter, "What nut is going to interpret this as encouragement?"
Damn. Trump is talking about Biden being assassinated weeks into his presidency. What nut is going to interpret this as an encouragement?

After all, he is in the state wherein armed domestic terrorists plotted to kidnap and kill the Democratic (and democratically elected) governor, Gretchen Whitmer. We know Trump is inciting and endorsing violent, illegal uprising in the event he loses.
How is this not the next step? How can anyone brush this kind of talk off? And people in the crowd cackle and cheer.
I'm left speechless after seeing that clip of Donald Trump at his rally. Talking about shooting Joe Biden. Behind the podium with the Presidential Seal. There must be accountability.

@secretservice The Man that you protect, Donald Trump, just referenced Joe Biden being shot three weeks into his role as President. The statement is viral at a rally in Lansing Michigan. God help us all.

At his rally in Michigan today, Trump talked about Biden being assassinated weeks into his presidency.
His comments were made three weeks after the FBI announced the arrests of 13 suspects accused of plotting to kidnap Gretchen Whitmer.
