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