You can see the reaction of the crowd of people around him when he said it. They seemed to get the point.

No, that's smart.

We're in an age where every word, action, facial tic is scrutinized.


That's not the case, especially when the majority of Trump's words are completely absent from scrutiny. The scrutiny on this particular speech is spent on less than a fraction of it.


"Quantity over Quality"?

Yeah, doesn't work that way.

Another thing to consider, as a Republican pundit pointed out on a news show, Trump again took the negative news from Hillary from the news cycle. That terrorist’s father going to her event was covered up by Trump antics...This Hillary story should have taken all the news cycle time but Trump saved Hillary again.


It seems Trump always takes the heat off Hillary.


I tell you folks it appears Trump is deliberately blowing this election.

For sure.

This one simply can not be spun.

I wonder if that reaction included plotting an assassination.

There are actually a few stories he could be distracting people from.

You said we scrutinize every word and movement, when that clearly isn't the case.

Couldn't we say the same about Joe BIden?

In 2008, Biden attempted to convince supporters Obama was not after their guns. Transcript: “I guarantee ya’ Barack Obama ain’t takin’ my shotgun,..If he tries to fool with my Beretta he’s got a problem...”

Was Joe the Schmoe. threatening Obama or just warning him?

It just gets curiouser and curiouser how things get "forgotten, i.e,, ingored or just plain twisted.

Not even close to the same.

Can you drag up anyone else?

I don't want to belabor the point but, if you look back in this elections history you’ll notice every time Hillary messes up Trump trumps her and grabs the headlines with more folly.


They don’t call him Trump for nothing

One-upmanship is very immature behavior.

Well, considering the ATS posters in this thread are scrutinizing 10 seconds of a 45 minute speech, I have to say I am not kidding.

I believe that they were caught off guard and too surprised to act on the suggestion, in the moment.

Using Hillary to justify Trump.

Doesn't work.


She used the word assassination.Trump didn't. Where's the media frenzy?


This is about Trump. Not Hillary.


This is about the blatant hypocrisy in media. Why are you not just as appalled by Clinton's innuendo as by Trump's? What you are determining by his context is purely subjective. It could mean 2nd amendment lobbyists or it could mean assassination. No one knows except Trump. And to say a subjective comment is objective is bias. There was nothing objective about his statement. Yes, I can see both camps assuming the meaning but that's because it isn't clear. It's left up to the interpreter's imagination. Now if you want to compare comments as purely semantics, then Hillary wins by merely mentioning assassination, RFK and the presidential campaign in the same sentence.

But that’s one-downmanship that Trump does

Well, maybe that's because the majority of what Trump says is irrelevant slogans and meaningless jibber jabber. That doesn't mean the small amount left over isn't significant. Nor is it something where you compare what's being said by the amount of words used.

If I give you an hour long speech filled with useless information but within that speech make the small statement that I'll be stealing all your money in the bank, that one single statement is still extremely important is it not?? It may have only taken seconds out of an hour long speech to say but is still the most critical statement being made. Just because it represents only a fraction of the entire speech is irrelevant.

The key word being "interpretation," which often leads to misinterpretations.

I'm no Trump fan--not even in the least, other than the fact that he doesn't bow down to political correctness--but I took his comment the same way that he says that he meant it (before he had to clarify for those using emotional bias to make something out of nothing).

But you're right--a good politician would not make such a comment that leaves itself open to such terrible interpretation, but in defense of Trump, you can't always predict how people will put words (or meaning, in this case) in your mouth when you say something.
