Gabby Giffords jumps down Trump's throat re

the threat to Hillary Clinton

<snip>


Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ), who survived an assassination attempt in 2011, urged Americans in a statement Tuesday to condemn Donald Trump's remark about "Second Amendment people" taking action to stop Hillary Clinton from appointing Supreme Court judges, saying it could incite violence.

In a statement, Giffords and her husband, former astronaut Mark Kelly, urged Americans to draw a "bright red line" between political speech and advocating violence.

"Responsible, stable individuals wonít take Trumpís rhetoric to its literal end, but his words may provide a magnet for those seeking infamy," their statement read. "They may provide inspiration or permission for those bent on bloodshed."

They went on in the statement to urge Trump's supporters and the GOP nominee himself to "to unambiguously condemn these remarks and the violence they insinuate."

5. I can just picture how Trump Jong-un will respond to her

Will he mock the way she speaks now? Will he mock how she was crippled? Will he call her a loser for being shot?
PLACE YOUR BETS BELOW!

"Giffords is a total loser. I don't like people that get shot in the head. Total disaster."
"If Giffords had a gun that day she'd never have been shot. Sad!"

6. Your comment makes me want to cry.

I can easily visualize him saying those exact words.

I wish Trump would just go away.

9. If Rump "goes away," someone worse will replace him

In other words, someone with better skill at covering up their true thoughts, which are just as dark as Rump's.

7. Can you imagine how she must feel?

It's beyond disgusting. And must be so hurtful to her.

10. Remember the Klondike Kardashian's map

With the bullseye crosshairs on Giffords and others? It's not a fucking joking matter with all of the heavily armed, unhinged ditto heads out there.

This is intolerable, and any GOPug who does not IMMEDIATELY denounce it in the strongest possible language has absolutely NO BUSINESS being in politics!
