Trump promotes violence against Hillary
Donald J. Trump, the former game show host presently living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, is still obsessed with the woman who beat him like a red-headed stepchild in the popular vote, Hillary Clinton. Trump, short-tempered clown that he is, is no doubt still triggered by the massive publicity her new book, “What Happened,” has received. So, succumbing to his worst Internet trolling tendencies, he retweeted – and then apparently removed – a mocked-up video of himself hitting Hillary Clinton with a golf ball.
The good folks at BuzzFlash managed to capture the retweet before Trump (or his handlers) tried to cast it into the memory hole:

But I digress.
Reaction to the retweet was swift…
Pundits on CNN were caught speechless on Sunday after President Donald Trump retweeted a video of him hitting Hillary Clinton with a golfball.
“The president of the United States retweeted that this morning,” CNN host John King noted. “Why?”
“He’s a disrupter,” New York Times reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis explained. “He has these impulses, he enjoys engaging on social media. You hear him talking about that, that is so important to his identity. People want to hear from him.”
“But it is unusual,” she admitted.
“See, we can’t find the words,” King agreed. “It’s interesting because he is the president of the United States. It is insane kind of.”
“He’ll come out on a Saturday morning and blow himself up with these crazy tweets,” Davis remarked. “I mean, this wasn’t about immigration, it wasn’t about any policy thing. It’s just something he probably thought was funny.”
… but 90% wrong. Yes he has “impulses,” but they are driven by disdain for women, personal grudges, and a desire to inflict violence on those he hates.
When the volatile buffoon unleashes such a retweet, it promotes violence against Hillary Clinton, particularly among his angry, bigoted, ultramysoginistic “deplorable” base.
America won’t be great again until this tyrant-wannabe is driven from office.
