Trump says he could ‘shoot somebody’ and still maintain support

Source: MSNBC

Donald Trump said Saturday that his supporters are so loyal that he would not lose backers even if he were to shoot someone in the middle of downtown Manhattan.

“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, okay, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Trump said at a rally in Sioux Center, Iowa, as the audience laughed. “It’s, like, incredible.”

Trump has previously boasted about the devotion of his fans, but the new comment is the most extreme example of such a remark.

A recent NBC News/Survey Monkey poll suggested that Trump supporters, once decided, are likely to stay with him. About half of respondents backing the real estate mogul said they were “absolutely certain” that they will vote for Trump.

18. No, just the ability to slide with anything.

 

All she's got is "bernies a socialist. Nobody will vote for a socialist". People LIKE him everywhere he goes. You know she cant stand the fact that even a lot of republicans say he's a good man!
I know a lot of folks here disagree, but I believe if this email thing was happening to anyone else, they'd be out of the race. As it is, someone WILL take a fall, but it aint gonna be her.
And I cant count the number of times I've heard Trump say something and think "well, THATS it, he's done for". And then be proven wrong. Again.

57. I absolutely agree with you! And as Thom Hartmann says, "If Hillary is the candidate, we sure want

 

her to win in the general election. And if it's Bernie (as Thom and many of us want), we want him to win in the general. We sure don't want either of them damaged in the primaries."

Let's not form a circular firing squad to destroy our best chances to hold on to the White House.

I could stand in the middle or a Kindergarten classroom and shoot somebody, okay, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Trump said at a rally in Sioux Center, Iowa, as the audience laughed. “It’s, like, incredible.

I could stand in the middle of a high school library and shoot somebody, okay, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay?” Trump said at a rally in Sioux Center, Iowa, as the audience laughed. “It’s, like, incredible.

I don't really think he wants to be president, unless he is just trying to see how pissed off he can make the other 61%
or the 59% or whatever percent still does not want him to be president.
It should be 99% that DON'T WANT HIM. Be Afraid.

He constantly makes outrageous comments, yet everyone loves him, I wish it made sense. But I cannot wrap my head around it. He could say anything and people would still flock to him.

Why is he even running for office? He obviously knows he is not right for the job... He said it himself. Something along the lines of "good people don't go into office." Would a good person say he could shoot someone and be at the top? Trump is a thug, look out America.
