Dan Bongino isn’t buying the ‘violence against Hillary’ narrative that the media is selling on Trump’s “2nd amendment people” comment from earlier today. In fact he told CNN’s Don Lemon that the comments on his show had reached the comical stage.
Bongino pushed back hard, saying we could disagree with Trump on how imprudently he worded his comments, but that given the context that it’s obvious Trump was trying to motivate voters to elect him and vote against Hillary.
He even called Lemon out multiple times for having already made up his mind that Trump’s comments were related toward violence.
You have to watch the full thing because it goes on for the entire clip:
I totally agree with Dan. If you are parsing Trump’s words, they are inarticulate and inaccurate. But I never got the impression he was suggesting any violence against anyone.
To suggest violence against Hillary is what he really meant is absurd in my opinion.
