Ex-CIA Director on Trump’s Hillary threat: If anyone else said that, they’d be in ‘the back of a police wagon’

At a rally in North Carolina today, Donald Trump may have outdone himself – in an extremely serious and dangerous way.

As he was speaking to an audience at the University of North Carolina, Trump warned that if Hillary Clinton were to become president, she would have free rein to pick Supreme Court Justices.

Then the GOP nominee said this:

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is.”

To many people, that sounded like a call for his supporters to assassinate his opponent.

Appearing on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper today, former NSA Director Michael Hayden shared his thoughts on Trump’s comments, and he didn’t mince words.

“That’s actually a very arresting comment,” Hayden said. “And it suggests either a very bad taste reference to political assassination and an attempt at humor, or an incredible insensitivity. It may be the latter, an incredible insensitivity to the prevalence of political assassination inside of American history, and how that is a topic that we don’t ever come close to, even when we think we’re trying to be light-hearted.”

“There was an attempt on Donald Trump’s life a few weeks ago, actually, and the Secret Service got involved.” Tapper said, referring to the Dayton, Ohio rally where the Secret Service had to rush the stage after someone jumped the barrier.

“Well, let me say if someone else said that outside of the hall, he’d be in the back of a police wagon now, with the Secret Service questioning him,” Hayden replied.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
