Donald Trump Is a Dangerous Demagogue

[Content Note: Incitement of violence.]

There aren't even words strong enough to describe what Donald Trump said at a rally this afternoon:

Hillary wants to absolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick— [boos from audience] If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although, the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know.

I am so fucking angry I don't even know what to do with myself. This is not just indecent; it's criminal. If any other random person said something like this, they would immediately be investigated by the Secret Service. And rightly so.

Meanwhile, the media will keep talking about Clinton's emails, as her opponent just casually suggests people fucking shoot her because of a policy that doesn't even exist. HE IS LYING and HE IS INCITING. And this is gravely serious. It is not a joke.
