After Trump's dangerous talk about Biden being shot

Nancy should call a special session of the House and censure this bastard! He is inciting some of his terrorists to do the act. And it would be BEFORE the election to keep Kamala from being President automatically. This crap should not be taken lightly. Why the hell isn't the media covering this more?

It's unlikely the Secret Service detail for Biden would let that go by without saying something to the right people, maybe even more than one set of the right people. *ahem* FBI, perhaps. Not amplifying it further is smart.

The same Trump who has to use a shorter set of steps to get into AF1?

The same Trump who has to use both hands to drink water?

The same Trump who has to use a golf cart while other world leaders walk a few hundred yards?

We still have the same Nazi Senate.

The media is complicit because a Biden bump-off would give them months of stories. They're too lazy to find news. And besides, they put Trump in the WH for that very same reason..

He must go through their lines of authority, so I doubt they're afraid of being fired. They know he can't fire them. Besides, most of them are Republican, and even he knows he shouldn't alienate his armed feds the way he has the rest of the cabinet agency people.

If they live up to their sworn oaths to protect and defend the Constitution, which provides for eliminating any kind of threat to life, liberty, etc., they must do their jobs and warn him that he can't create a climate of threat to anyone, not just a public figure.

He'll just say he was joking. But that's how crime bosses always cover themselves and they know it.

yes, Kamala is ready.

Joe picked well there.

Unlike Trump, who picked an easily manipulated store front dummy as VP.

But yes, Trump's words could be interpreted a certain way by some unstable elements in his followers.

Hopefully the SS and FBI are on full alert. And if something bad happens, it backfires badly on Trump.

who can point out that his words could be interpreted a certain way?

Trump's all too common 'plausible deniability' use of language is something that needs confronting, and put to rest.

Say what you mean, don't be ambiguous, don't hide messages in your words, and FFS GROW UP!

ie: pubic speech that can be expected to incite terrorism

without direct link between the inciter (Trump) and the

perpetrators (his cult-like dangerous and heavily armed base)


It's a formula that Trump has uses time and again.

But this time, much scarier than the Witmer situation.

But he could very plausibly be saying his mind is shot as in worn out and they’ll use the 25th Amendment to get Joe out of office. Sorry, but that’s my take although I won’t rule out it being a dog whistle.

The one most people on this thread are concerned is the more common one. The second, which is the one you mention, is accurate but less common. Either way, if it's unclear, it should be investigated.

For any other person, this would be enough to get a visit by the FBI or Secret Service.

Remember Trump did this to HRC in the August 2016. He deserves NO benefit of the doubt: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/10/us/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton.html

There is a website out there which is pro trump (PanAm Post), they write in different languages and unfortunately have reached people from many countries who believe the crap they are saying. One of them wrote and article stating how genius trump was about the suggestion of drinking disinfectants, because he was not really telling people to drink them, and then came up with some weird explanation of what trump was trying to say.

Nope, he meant shot from a bullet...He sent a message to his crazies!

... "gets shot," it clearly means "assaulted with a firearm." The phrase "is shot" can mean "exhausted, spent." However, there is enough ambiguity in the latter phrase to merit investigation by ... whom? The Secret Service? The FBI? That's where it gets problematic.

On the side, the message gets through but they avoid direct orders to prevent incrimination, but let us be clear, it was an order and I am sure some crazy person out there has began plotting. This is very dangerous.
