The incident happen in an exchange with the FOX News anchor. When asked her opinion of the recent scandal surrounding some comments made by Sen. Hillary Clinton, which Trotta described by saying that, "some are reading [it] as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama." Hemmer quickly corrected Trotta, having noticed that she had said "Osama" when she meant "Obama." At this point, Trotta said, "Obama. Well...both if we could!" Trotta then laughed gleefully.

I hope not, but someone knocking off Obama, or another attempt to wouldn't really surprise me. Just have had a bad feeling about that all along. I'm sure these ads aren't lost on his campaign people and I hope he has a good security team. Weird!
