During a campaign event in Sioux Center, Iowa, on Saturday, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump said he could kill people on the street and still be popular among Conservatives. He’s not wrong. We’ve seen his support rise after each inflammatory comment made in order to disparage minority groups.

“I have the most loyal people, did you ever see that? I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters,” the hotel magnate bragged.
Here’s the clip again:
Trump declined to answer when CNN asked him to clarify his comments.
The billionaire hotel magnate for once told the truth. Trump has garnered support from Conservatives to the likes of which we’ve never seen before. He could sit down at a table to feast on live kittens and his supporters would cheer him on while chanting, “Trump, Trump, Trump!”
As he poops the kittens out the next day, the crowd would yell in unison, “USA! USA! USA!”
At the speech, Trump floated the prospect of suing Ted Cruz over whether he’s eligible to run for president and also warned that Christianity was under “siege,” according to The Hill.
SURE, I live in the South and Christianity is under siege just like guns. There’s a gun shop and church on every corner. The horror of it all for Christians to not have a place to worship closer than the corner. Having to trudge ten whole steps is a sign of Christian persecution.
Meanwhile, freedom of religion is under attack if you aren’t a white Christian. Go to a Trump rally wearing a Muslim headscarf and see what happens. Or just stand there silently in protest and see how far you get. Hopefully, you won’t be beaten to a pulp while the crowd cheers it on. Hopefully.
Palin’s bizarre endorsement shows how far off the rails the GOP has gone. And yet, Trump’s comments come at a time when gun control is a focus given the amount of mass shootings occurring in this country. What a terrifying statement for a GOP front-runner to make.
USA! USA! USA!
