A number of conservative figures expressed their frustration Tuesday with Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, after he appeared to suggest using violence to stop his rival, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” Trump said at a campaign rally in North Carolina. “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is.”
He certainly seemed to suggest something that he should not have suggested. https://t.co/zH8xalf6vZ— Ben Howe (@Ben Howe) 1470771139.0

Good that Trump is giving out gold ID cards with his name on it. Will make crazy shooter motives easier to identify. https://t.co/nTmq8eBiSf— Ben Howe (@Ben Howe) 1470771491.0
Gonna be pretty hilarious when the Secret Service has to go talk to one of the candidates.— Ben Shapiro (@Ben Shapiro) 1470772794.0
It will be easy for the Secret Service to investigate the reckless maniac who said this-- his own detail can do it! https://t.co/8UC4yUxTP2— Norman Ornstein (@Norman Ornstein) 1470770121.0
Damn political correctness has made it so one candidate can't even joke about his supporters assassinating the other one anymore— Leon Wolf (@Leon Wolf) 1470773786.0
Is there a single conservative cause that Trump hasn’t harmed in the last year?— Charles C. W. Cooke (@Charles C. W. Cooke) 1470771577.0
Man, I step away from Twitter long enough to play football catch with my son. And Trump proves I can't leave him alone for a moment.— Steve Deace (@Steve Deace) 1470774765.0
Some conservatives were also upset that Trump's comments would overshadow a story that could have potentially harmed Clinton: news that the father of the Orlando club mass shooter sat behind her at a recent campaign rally.
Trump did a good job of getting everyone to stop talking about Omar Mateen's dad though.— Chuck Ross (@Chuck Ross) 1470771727.0
