    Trump suggests that it could get 'very bad' if military, police, biker supporters play 'tough'

    President Trump in a new interview suggested that his supporters are tougher than Democrats, and that if they actually play tough things could get "very bad."Trump made the comments in the context of an interview with the conservative outlet Breitbart in which he argued that Democrats play a tough political game.


    "You know, the left plays a tougher game, it's very funny," Trump said in the interview with Breitbart published on Wednesday. "I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don't play it tougher."

    President Trump in a new interview suggested that his supporters are tougher than Democrats, and that if they actually play tough things could get "very bad."

    "I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump - I have the tough people, but they don't play it tough - until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad," Trump said.

    It looks like we're really close to the point when Trump will call for violence and his base seems at time to be just as anxious for violence as well. There's no limit to this man's abhorrent, traitorous, dictatorial behavior.

    WTF is wrong with Trump?

    I mean... just... WTF... what is he thinking? It does sound like he wants violence or wants to encourage it. I really don't know how or why Trump thinks this is a good idea or makes sense. If his supporters go out and rally, and try to look tough and intimidate, and violence erupts... does Trump really think he will gain? Does Trump really think that that is going to help is political goals like getting his wall funding?

    That makes no sense.

    Part of me thinks, maybe Trump is listening to way too many crazy people who want a Civil War or something.

    I am trying to make sense of his comments, maybe you are on to something... If Trump encourages violence in face of a election loss, that wouldn't be surprise, actually. It would totally disgusting and psycho, but not surprising.

    I'm reminded of fights in the neighborhood growing up. Often there was an a-hole cheering the fight on but never threw a punch. That's Trump in this scenario. Saying something like this is idiotic if we expect a president to be a representative of the entire country. He's doing the usual riling of the base, and should something bad actually happen we can bet he'll claim he never meant anything to happen. It's the cowardly way to fight your battles.

    I definitely agree that Trump only cares about himself. I just don't know what Trump or his supporters except. Are they just going to show up and march and rally with weapons and firearms, because they can open carry and rally. If Antifa shows up, it could be a mess again, but what's the point. It's just going to look like Charlottesville, and hopefully police will respond better if it happened again.

    Marching and rallying isn't going to cause any change, so what, then, up the ante to attack innocent people and commit terror acts? Because I really don't see how just going into the streets with guns is going to cause anything other than getting arrested.

    Many people are predicting that Trump will not step down, and he will try to seize power. From Trump's POV, an uprising of his supporters could protect him. If it allowed him to remain in office indefinitely and never face legal consequences, then that does serve him. Some of his supporters are also crazy enough to believe it, and want a revolution protecting Trump. I really don't think it would happen though. Trump is insane if he is calling for such a event to happen in America.

    The worst scenario would be a Trump loss in a very narrow election. Then we can look forward to him not going peacefully.

    Note the complete absence of the usual Trumpists from this thread.

    Perhaps save a link and a quote or two, then post it back at their lying asses every time they start running their Gods-forsaken mouths about "leftist violence" or whatever the official Deuce of the Day happens to be.

    He is pretty much calling for Charlottesville part two.
