Who would want to kill Trump, I wonder? I mean, sure, he speaks from the hip, he’s not afraid to air his political opponent’s dirty laundry, and he has a shit ton of money….but does that mean that he should be shot dead?
The very wealthy, often times—and although we would love for them to be the juxtaposition of an asshole—are the archetypal reflections of Donald Trump. And, yes, they may very well grind our gears because of it, but, again, does it mean that we should go out of our way to assassinate them?
But, you know what, if one of us were brave enough to want to assassinate Trump, wouldn’t that be a great story for the Associated Press?
Actually, one of us did try to assassinate Donald Trump over the weekend. This brave soul was 20-year-old Michael Steven Sanford from Britain who had overstayed his, visa welcome in the U.S., but the Associated Press barely made a whisper about it.
According to statements he gave on Monday to the District Court in Nevada, “Sandford allegedly tried to pull a gun from the holster of a police officer at a Trump rally in Las Vegas on Saturday. He was arrested and later told the Secret Service that he had driven to the event from California and had been planning to kill the candidate for a year”
If you were raised in the American environment, where lone-wolves and nutcases were treated like celebrities in the Associated Press, common sense would tell you that if some illegal alien was planning to kill a person for a year—escpecially a prominent figure like Donald Trump—the entire American family would know about it, right?
Again, the Associated Press kept silent. My assumption is, and this may be where those on the far right, and I, intersect, that because Donald Trump is insanely supportive of the 2nd amendment that, mentioning Michale Steven Sanford, wouldn’t have helped the Associated Press’s push to get rid of our guns.
Secondly, Michael Steven Sanford, and although he was an illegal immigrant, and Donald Trump advocates for the removal or supervision of illegal immigrants, doesn’t fit the descriptions of what we’re so used to; Mexican and Muslim.
