What have we become as a society when the President of the United States can say this and it’s not front page news? Donald Trump threatens his political opponents and it just becomes one more bizarre statement in a mountain of absurdity. In an interview with the right-leaning Breitbart, Trump said:
“I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of Bikers for Trump — I have tough people, but they don’t play it tough until they go to a certain point and then it would be very, very bad.” – Donald Trump
We’re wondering what is that “certain point?” Negative press? Impeachment?
Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart wrote for CNN:
“It’s hard to overestimate the damage President Trump has done to our political climate when comments like this go virtually unnoticed. We’ve all become numb to the lying, bullying and physical threats the President makes almost daily.”
