Donald Trump Denies He Was Inciting Violence With Second Amendment Comment About Hillary Clinton And The Secret Service Did Not Visit Him


Donald Trump: I wish someone would just pop a cap in her butt!
U.S. Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, caused a firestorm of controversy this week after he made comments about political rival, Hillary Clinton, being taken care of by "the Second  Amendment people." The Second Amendment is the right to bear arms (guns) in America ("the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed). Some interpreted Trump's statements to mean that Americans would kill Clinton if she chose Supreme Court judges they did not like, in the event she is elected President of the United States. 
Trump stated," Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know." Trump later stated his comments were to motivate gun owners to vote against Clinton, not shoot her.

Hillary Clinton: Yea, keep playing with me Donald and you and your combover are gonna end up on the Clinton kill list (and boy does it have a lot of names). Bernie just got off the list last month (LOL).
 CNN reported the Secret Service formally interviewed Trump about his statements. The Trump campaign stated CNN lied. The Secret Service backs up their statement in also denying CNN's claims. Trump slammed CNN for the story stating, "No such meeting or conversation ever happened. A made up story by low ratings CNN." 
I can see how some could interpret Trump's statements as dangerous. It sounded like he was joking and hoping regarding gun owners lighting up Hillary like a Christmas tree. There are always fanatics who are unbalanced and will hear or read items and act upon it in an illegal manner. Trump needs to be careful of what he says, because if someone pops a cap in Hillary's butt, some will blame him.

Side Bar: Two months ago, a Democrat writer indirectly called for Donald Trump's assassination and the mainstream press said nothing (weeks after, someone did actually try to kill Trump). This week Trump makes a statement that is interpreted by some as violent and it lands on all the mainstream outlets. That's quite uneven. Both stories should receive the same amount of attention.
