• Trump Fires Back At Hillary: She’s ‘Pathetic’

    Donald Trump fired back at Hillary Clinton Friday for claiming he is to blame him for the killings in Charleston, South Carolina.

    “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,” Trump said in a video posted to his Instagram account on Friday titled, “Hillary Clinton reaches new low.”

    Clinton hinted during an interview on Thursday that Trump’s comments about Mexicans during his announcement speech, when he described illegal immigrants from Mexico as criminals and “rapists,” typified the inflammatory rhetoric that could “trigger people who are less than stable to do something” like the shootings.

    “Public discourse is sometimes hotter and more negative than it should be, which can, in my opinion, trigger someone who is less than stable,” Clinton said. “I think we have to speak out against it. Like, 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 know, you don’t talk like that on talk radio.”

    Sam Nunberg, a spokesperson for Trump, said the real estate tycoon— who canceled a sold-out campaign event in the state after the shooting— sends his prayers and condolences to the people of South Carolina.

    “At this time of national sorrow, a responsible leader should be focused on uniting and healing the country,” Nunberg said.”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.”

    Nunberg added, it is “totally inappropriate” for Clinton to use the tragedy to attack a political opponent.

    “She must be nervous about something,” he said, implying that Clinton must feel threatened by Trump’s entry into the presidential race.

    Clinton, on the other hand, kept on campaigning the day after the shooting and  attended a series of fundraisers on the West Coast.
