Donald Trump Instagrammed a blunt response today to Hillary Clinton’s suggestion that the brash billionaire businessman and reality TV star might somehow be responsible for the horrific church shootings in Charleston, South Carolina.
Nine persons were tragically murdered at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church by a suspect authorities have identified as Dylann Roof.
In an interview yesterday with Las Vegas journalist Jon Ralston — one of the few media exchanges that she has granted so far — in which the Charleston attack came up, Hillary Clinton claimed that hot rhetoric can “trigger people who are less than stable.”
“For example, a recent entry into the Republican presidential campaign said some very inflammatory things about Mexicans. Everybody should stand up and say that’s not acceptable. You don’t talk like that on talk radio. You don’t talk like that on the kind of political campaigns,” Clinton declared. The front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton is an aggressive gun control advocate.
On Tuesday, when Trump verbosely announced for president for the GOP, he prompted controversy in a reference to Mexican rapists allegedly coming across the southern border into the U.S.
In a brief Instagram message today that has since migrated to other platforms, Trump didn’t mince words about his potential rival in the 2016 general election.
“Wow–it’s pretty pathetic that Hillary Clinton just blamed me for the horrendous attack that took place in South Carolina. This is why politicians are just no good. Our country’s in trouble.”
The Trump video clip has received more than 3,000 Instagram likes so far, along with lots of polarized, profane comments.
A Trump spokeswoman further expounded on the Donald Trump/Hillary Clinton squabble, according to the Daily Mail.
“Mr. Trump believes that Hillary Clinton does not have any credibility when she blames words for violence. This is the same politician who lied to the world after she failed to take proper steps to secure the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi and falsely blamed the radical Islamic attack on a YouTube video. This is the same person who illegally deleted her emails after getting a subpoena from the U.S. Congress. It is totally inappropriate for Mrs. Clinton to exploit this terrible tragedy and use it as an opportunity to attack Donald Trump. She must be nervous about something.”
Like him or hate him regardless of whether you consider the real estate mogul a viable or vanity candidate for president, Donald Trump seems to stir up the emotions across the political spectrum.
Pop diva Cher, for example, threatened on Twitter to move to Jupiter if Trump was elected president.
In an uncharacteristic outburst on Wednesday, Dana Perino of The Five on the Fox News Channel accused co-host Eric Bolling of pandering to Donald Trump merely so that he could get on The Celebrity Apprentice.
