Donald Trump just retweeted a video from the “Cowboys for Trump” Twitter account and the opening line has people absolutely terrified.
The video features the group’s leader Couy Griffin speaking to a crowd of supporters:
I’ve come to a place where I’ve come to the conclusion that the only good democrat is a dead democrat.
But don’t worry, he’s only speaking in the “political sense”...
After cheers and applause from the adoring crowd, Griffin clarified his remark:
I don’t say that in the physical sense and I can already see the videos getting edited where it says I want you to go murder Democrats, no. I say that in the political sense because the democrat agenda and policy is anti-American right now.
Our country’s not coming to a place if you love or hate Donald Trump, our country is coming to a place if you love or hate America.
After hearing all of this, keyboard warrior Donald Trump hit the quote-tweet button and wrote:
And people are rightly scared the POTUS has retweeted a video that starts off the way it does:
the president just tweeted a call for lethal violence against democrats. https://t.co/TwTnVmFmkw
