I’ve been gone awhile. Got sick of hearing myself rant. But this election has called me back.
Donald Trump said, “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment…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.”
Tom Friedman wrote in August 10 New York Times: “And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin got assassinated.”
Donald Trump backtracked, saying he meant the power of the NRA at the voting booth, but Darrin Bell had a great cartoon in the Washington Post showing the fallacy of that claim–are judges chosen before an election, or after?
My favorite response came from Elizabeth Warren, who wrote on Twitter: Mr. Trump “makes death threats because he’s a pathetic coward who can’t handle the fact that he’s losing to a girl.”
