Trump advisor repeats call for Hillary Clinton to be 'shot in a firing squad for treason'

The rocks these people crawled out from under, need to be firmly replaced.

A New Hampshire state representative and advisor to Donald Trump's presidential campaign doubled down Tuesday on his incendiary calls last month that Hillary Clinton should be executed for treason.

But Al Baldasaro, who co-chairs Trump's national veterans coalition, blamed the "liberal media," a frequent target of the Trump campaign, for misrepresenting his language.

"The liberal media took what I said and went against the law and the Constitution and ran with it, and they said that I wanted her assassinated, which I never did," Baldasaro said in an interview with the Republican/MassLive.com.

"I said I spoke as a veteran, and she should be shot in a firing squad for treason," he added.

Reports published at the time quoted Baldasaro as saying Clinton should be shot by firing squad for her use of a private email server while she was secretary of State, not that she should be assassinated.

4. Trial by kangaroo court, followed by execution

Is murder just the same. These wingers think having served in the military gives them some kind of moral authority in politics. Fuck them.

3. Wonder if this vile man will grant her a trial?? My stomach just turns and I

get a visceral reaction when I see these type headlines. This has to stop but I do not know how it will stop when leaders in our country just close their ears to it. Trump really should publicly condemn this type of dangerous nonsense. And it is dangerous.

6. Baldasaro is a Birther too

Back in 2011 he was one of the people who filed a challenge to try to keep President Obama off the NH primary ballot in 2012.

Here is a video of the unhappy Birthers including Al after the election commission tossed out Orly Taitz's challenge filed on their behalf.
