Donald Trump incited violence against Hillary, which endangers not just her life but also the Secret Service detail protecting her.
Among Donald Trump’s many disqualifying comments, his suggestion that Hillary should be assassinated for Supreme Court Justice picks is the most egregious.
The absence of overwhelming and unequivocal repudiation of Trump by the GOP and national media effectively normalizes his tyrannical behavior.
Anyone who enables Donald Trump’s jaw-dropping recklessness should consider the lives he has put at risk. And they should think about how their reaction (or lack thereof) impacts those lives as well.
This issue should be treated with the gravity it deserves. In the words of Dan Rather:
“This cannot be treated as just another outrageous moment in the campaign. We will see whether major newscasts explain how grave and unprecedented this is.”
