Watched another segment of The Dictator's Playbook on PBS a few days ago. Trump's taking a page right out of it.

Trump has threatened his way to the Presidency. It is his MO. When all else fails bring in the clowns.

Yeah, it’s a threat. It’s too bad the Repubs that should be keeping trump in check are scared.

They can only act under his orders so he is saying he would order them to kill Americans.

Armageddon via "The Tough Ones for Trump."

To tell you the truth, I often think Trump gets his view of "history" and vision of life and the future from the movies. We know he doesn't read, so he is not being influenced by books, but like too many of the public (especially those who became Trumpsters), he "learns" from Hollywood--because he doesn't understand the difference between accuracy and "dramatic values." Besides, "dramatic" is always more interesting.

What do you think the campaign season of 2020 will look like? Worse than 2016? Real violence instead of just threats? I think the hate will intensify though it's hard to believe it could get any worse.

It will get worse, he isn't going to leave quietly no matter what the outcome of the election.

He has his cult whipped up to believe that everyone who says a word against him is in on it, every institution is involved and that Donnie is the font of truth and trust.

He is saying here I have the guns, I have the power.

Don't let things get bad for Donnie.

I could be wrong, but I don't think the election is going to be the tough thing for trump. The election is going to be shoved to the very back of the consideration pile when the investigation results begin to come to light.

I think it will get worse before it gets better, due to his cult. His M.O. is bullying and he will bully his cult into doing even more violent acts. If he makes enough threats, some right wing extremists nuts with guns (and worse) may take him seriously and act out in the worst possible ways on our streets.

2020--can you imagine the lies that will spew from his mean little mouth? And the insulting nicknames for the Democrat candidates? This is going to be ugly because he likes it that way.

OK, I've called him any number of names here, but the difference is that he earns them.

You're right, Swampy, perhaps in a muddy kind of way. But the American military is a very, very big organisation, and some of the most influential people in that organisation are not too amused with Mr Trump. But oh how I love the bit about bikers. I hope it was a joke. It would be the first sign that your pres actually has a sense of humour, which is a sign of intelligence. Of course if it wasn't a joke, it's even funnier. Sicker, but funnier.

Yep, that sounded like a threat alright, if trump doesn't get his way he'll give the order release the hounds. I doubt trumpsters here will riot in the streets, they aren't that crazy crossing the red line...well, maybe a couple, like the one or two who posted the pepe the frog memes some time back. The military won't follow trump down mayhem road either. Bikers? they might go out for a ride and rev up their engines. But who knows, I may have to resurrect my thread asking "If trump goes down will he take the country with him?"...again.

I don't think trump has the military...we already know which side guys like Kelly and Mattis would be on, and it's not trump's ... rather they're on the side of the Constitution.

I wouldn't want to be in military leadership under trump and have to face that tough decision of following a president or the nation.

Whether or not Donnie has the will of the police, the military or the infamous Louisville Outlaws, this language is dangerous and it is deadly.

Has it been a month since the FBI stopped the coast guard lieutenant who had a kill list and the guns to carry the list out?

Pap change the speaker to Obama and read the quote back to yourself.

Let's not forget what someone who knows him best had to say:

"Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, that there will never be a peaceful transition of power."

-- Michael Cohen

I find nothing funny about that. This coming from a man who testified that he threatened people for trump about 500 times over the 10 years he worked for him.

Mea culpa for being frivolous when this really isn't -- as a whole -- at all funny. I get that. I just had this vision of the Bikers of America vrooming themselves up for a civil war. You have to admit that's a bit bizarre, to say the least.


Paprikash, I don't think a corrupt DOJ under Obama could be any more frightening than a corrupt pretty well everything under Trump, who is threatening the nation with every kind of violence he can think of.

————-

I’m guessing it means the military, police, and bikers are tough but they don’t play it tough until that certain point —perhaps that certain point would be if they are attacked by loony people?? Perhaps, in the case of military, in defense of our country. Perhaps, in the case of police, when lawbreakers attack them. Perhaps, in the case of bikers, if they are attacked first. All those “its” would be very bad. All guesses, all speculation

Usually the simplest explanation is the one that is correct. So, which would probably be correct?

Three words - it's a threat. Or - a paragraph of verbal gyrations?

Paprikash, he's talking about the left. I haven't seen his quote in context, only what's in the OP. What is the "certain point" that the left would drive them to to violence? Impeachment? Obstruction of justice charges? Losing an election?

Has anyone seen the context?

Trump’s comments came in a wider part of the conversation about how the left is more “vicious” than the right—and that the left in American politics plays “cuter and tougher.”

“So here’s the thing—it’s so terrible what’s happening,” Trump said when asked by Breitbart News Washington Political Editor Matthew Boyle about how the left is fighting hard. “You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. Okay? 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. But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this invest[igations]—that’s all they want to do is –you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this.”
