There goes Donald, again. Spouting off and fear-mongering about all the evils a Hillary Clinton presidency would inflict on America. At least, that’s the almost guaranteed narrative the Left will be churning from here on out, every time Trump says something seemingly bombastic. Donald, being Donald, rarely disappoints in the bombast category. Case in point, over the weekend at a fundraiser when he declared that Hillary wants to “abolish” the Second Amendment.
“Hillary Clinton wants to take your guns away, and she wants to abolish the Second Amendment. She wants to take the bullets away.” Trump said at the rally in Lynden, WA. The Left will eagerly play the victim card: Hillary suffering the indignity of a falsehood!! Although Hillary hasn’t directly stated any such intention, the Washington Free Beacon got ahold of Hillary telling a private fundraiser last October that the Supreme Court was “wrong on the Second Amendment”.
Technically, the Dems can accurately state that Hillary never announced an intention to abolish any part of the Constitution, and yes, Donald is a loudmouth who understands that broad generalities get headlines. But that doesn’t mean Trump is wrong. Here’s the rub: does anyone actually think that, if given the Golden Ticket, Hillary wouldn’t demolish the Second Amendment in a heartbeat? The only reason that Obama hasn’t dreamed up his own Executive Order to circumvent what is meant to be the law of the land is because he’s aware that the skids aren’t properly greased yet.
The liberal formula is all written out in how they’ve handled the social issues, especially the LBGT movement. A mere sixteen years ago, no Democrat running for office would have ever been stupid enough to publicly support gay marriage. A mere four years ago- and only twelve years after Al Gore publicly opposed it in his run for office- the Obama administration has an epiphany and now supports gay marriage like they invented the notion. Does anyone really think that Obama ever truly opposed it? Instead he continued to manipulate society to get used to the idea that supporting the LBGT platform was just less burdensome than opposing it.
Hillary is playing from the same old playbook.
Donald Trump may be a lot of things that a lot of people can’t accept about a President. Fine. But he is also completely unafraid to point out the emperor’s utter lack of clothing. In this case, it’s Hillary and the Left’s formula for deceiving the public about what they really believe until it’s too late to resist.
