In Iowa, Donald Trump Publicly Fantasizes About Physical Violence Against His Critics

“So hard his head would spin”
Politics • Views: 35,634

Donald Trump said this today in Iowa to get media attention: Trump Says He Wanted to ‘Hit a Couple of [DNC] Speakers So Hard’.

I almost didn’t write about it because let’s face it, this is a naked ploy to get people outraged and get into the media during the Democratic Convention. And when people get upset that he’s fantasizing about physical violence (which he is, of course, and everyone in the audience knew it), he’ll claim he meant “hit them” rhetorically.

But all of this stuff should be documented; the narcissistic media stunts are just as revealing as anything else this orange fascist does.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said Thursday afternoon he wanted to “hit” some of the Democratic National Convention speakers “so hard” while watching them last night, including a “little guy…so hard his head would spin.”

“You know what I wanted to. I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard,” Trump said. “I would have hit them. No, no. I was going to hit them, I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor.”

Trump didn’t immediately clarify what he meant, but he said he was made particularly upset by an unspecified person he called a “little guy.”

“I was gonna hit one guy in particular, a very little guy,” he said. “I was gonna hit this guy so hard his head would spin and he wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”

Let’s not ignore the part about him wanting to hit “a little guy”. Total thug behavior, and no, if you’re running for president to don’t get to say “just kidding” tomorrow.

Gen. Allen is going after every one of Trump’s idiotic foreign policy statements. All with a righteous anger. With great vengeance and furious anger. And you shall know we are the US military and we will not only defend her, but go after IS and destroy it.

Okay, I paraphrased… but that’s pretty much the sum of that speech.

Seeing these veterans at the dem Convention supporting HRC sends a powerful message that this narrative is exactly what it is—-BS. Four of my five brothers served in the Army, Air Force, and in the Marines, and they all are/were Democrats. The only reason I didn’t join the military is because my parents persuaded me not to. They wore me down by telling me how they had their hearts set on me being the first child to go to college, and it got to me, hitting me dead center in my heart and changing my mind. The one thing their words didn’t do was take away my desire to want to serve in the military.

Happened right after the ACW too. We had a large number of reverse carpetbaggers infest the Fox River Valley in Wisconsin.
