Rudy Giuliani Comes Up With A Hideous Defense Of Donald Trump’s ‘Second Amendment’ Threat To Clinton (VIDEO)

Leave it to Rudy Giuliani (R-N.Y.) to defend Donald Trump with a statement that may be even worse than the Republican presidential candidate’s suggestion that Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate, should be shot.

In case you missed it, Trump shocked much of the nation yesterday when he said about Clinton:

“By the way, and if she gets the pick—if she gets the pick of her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I dunno.”

This morning, Trump-surrogate Giuliani visited Good Morning America to assure everybody that we should not believe our lying ears if we thought Trump was hinting at any kind of violence.

With his trademark smirk, Giuliani first argued that Trump meant people should vote against Clinton, even though, as host George Stephanopoulos pointed out, Trump was clearly referring to “maybe” doing something after Clinton was elected.

So Giuliani came up with another excuse:

“We know Donald Trump is not particularly indirect. If Donald Trump was going to say something like that, he’d say something like that.”

Giuliani gave a hideous chuckle as he spoke.

Giuliani went on to accuse Clinton and the liberal media of making up the controversy:

“I was there. I’d like the people at home to realize the first time that any of us had any idea that that is the way it was interpreted is when the Clinton spin machine interpreted it that way. Spun it out to a press that is willing to hit him every day – bang, bang, bang, bang, bang!”

Obviously, Stephanopoulos wasn’t buying it. He noted that former CIA Director Michael Hayden made the same interpretation.

Giuliani ludicrously claimed that Hayden had merely fallen for the Clinton propaganda like everybody else.

“It was after the Clinton spin machine spun it out. They spun it out within about eight minutes. Bam! Like that!”

And then Giuliani came up with his most disgusting “defense” yet:

“With a crowd like that, if that’s what they thought he meant, they’d have gone wild.”

That’s right, we should know Trump wasn’t talking about having Clinton assassinated because the crowd wasn’t cheering enough. This, from the guy who has accused President Obama of not loving America and who has demanded Black Lives Matter change its name because he thinks the innocuous slogan is anti-American and anti-Christian.
