In what has become a pathetic group of folks, the Donald Trump apologists are out in abundance trying to “clarify” what exactly Trump means when he says horrific things. These are the same people who will, at any other moment, tell you that Trumps speaks his mind without a filter, and means what he says. It’s hypocritical to say the least, absolutely bizarre to be accurate.
One of the leading Trump apologists on the campaign trail, who loves to make every media appearance possible he can, is none other than former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
So, while appearing on Good Morning America with George Stephanopoulos, Giuliani was quick defend Trump from the implication that he was asking for Hillary Clinton to be assassinated by the ‘Second Amendment’ crowd. Which is exactly what he insinuated, especially if you know he’s a guy who speaks his mind, and means what he says.
Giuliani said of Trump’s remarks:
“We know Donald Trump is not particularly indirect. If Donald Trump was going to say something like that, he’d say something like that.”
He did say something like that, but please, by all means, Giuliani, continue:
“You know how speeches go. He was talking about how they [gun rights advocates] have the power to keep her out of office. That’s what he was talking about. With a crowd like that, if that’s what they thought he’d meant, they’d have gone wild.”
Giuliani said this with a giant smile across his face, outright giddy over the thought that Trump would actually call for Hillary to be assassinated.
Seriously. Who smiles while talking about something like that?
Then, trying to bring home his point, he even uses, without thinking, because he clearly doesn’t think:
“Bang bang bang bang bang.”
Quick to get away from this topic, because one can’t pretend that Trump didn’t say what he said for all that long, Giuliani pivoted to Hillary, because sure, why not? He’d rather avoid his candidate calling for assassination. Makes sense.
The Republican party is so far off the deep end, they can’t even be thrown a rescue buoy at this point.
Watch his pathetic, and slightly sociopathic, walk around the topic here:
