The comments you cited were being used as a false equivalency by Fox News about three hours ago. That group is also in furious spin control mode trying to downplay this remark.

There has been significant commentary about how little Trump has spent during the course of this campaign. What they fail to mention is the millions in free publicity he has received via FNC since he entered the primary.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Jonah Goldberg put it best yesterday when he wrote in the L.A. Times:

"After leaving the Republican National Convention, Trump climbed the rhetorical jackass tree and then hurled himself earthward, hitting every branch on the way down."

Somehow I don't think he's reached the ground yet, and there are many more jackass branches left to hit.

MDDad: I agree with you and Mr. Goldberg.
I think I am going to change my signature line to "Worst choices for president in my 35 + years of voting."

W and his ilk are always complaining about the NRA and the Gun Lobby power. Now that someone actually says it is so, you take the leap to the A (assassination) word? You're lost dudes ..

Not much of a leap if you've heard Trump speak before. He just can't keep his foot out of his mouth. No inner monologue, apparently.

Even the Secret Service acknowledged that they "were aware of the comment" Trump made.

So Wabash, I'm supposed to look at every news outlet on TV, radio, social media, the internet, and what Bill and Joe are talking about over the water cooler to know who is making a false equivalency issue just so I don't get backlash from you.

Dear God man, what do you do with the 13.5 minutes each day that you are not scouring any resource available on the face of the earth or on Mars so that you have a response to any poster's comment?

AGAIN, look at what I posted...I highlighted how Obama was giving Clinton a pass over making a comment that she likely wished she had not said. And then commented how 8 years later the candidates didn't share that generosity.

Nowhere did I say," Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah...Hillary did the same thing."

Only if you make the erroneous assumption that Trump was referring to the election. Since his comment was about appointing judges to the Supreme Court, it's clear he was referring to a post-election Clinton presidency where the NRA's voting power would no longer be an issue. If you can't see that, perhaps it is you who are "lost".

You're giving Trump way too much credit for intelligently thinking his comment through. He's never demonstrated any ability for being able to do that.

I agree. Glad that some see that. It's sad that he still has so many followers.

So far Trump has made a couple of really careless statements that seem to have intentions at purposefully targeting HRC. One was about the Russian's and email and now this 2nd amendment comment. I get that he may not have meant what we all heard he said, but the ability to communicate clearly is an essential part of the presidency don't you think?

Trump is very dangerous. I can't imagine anyone in their right mind voting for him. I'm sickened by how many people are caught up in the frenzy and using the excuse that HRC is so bad we have to vote for Trump. We have truly sunken to a new low when we think someone like Trump is an acceptable alternative to ... Well ... Almost anything.
