Kayleigh McEnany — a spokeswoman for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump — appeared on CNN Newsroom Tuesday to attempt to explain the candidate’s remarks about “Second Amendment people” being the remedy for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s potential Supreme Court appointments.
“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks,” Trump said at a rally in Wilmington, NC, “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is.”
McEnany said that what the candidate meant to say was that the NRA should try to stop Clinton from appointing liberal justices to the Supreme Court, not that someone should shoot the former Secretary of State.
“I think he’s referring to the fact that the National Rifle Association is the most powerful lobby, hands down, in the United States,” said McEnany. “So if anyone can stop a very anti-Second Amendment agenda, it would be the NRA and the Second Amendment folks. And I think when he talks about Hillary wanting to roll back the Second Amendment, he’s referring to how she doesn’t like Supreme Court jurisprudence on the Second Amendment.”
She went on to say that Clinton is against the Heller Amendment, a ruling that gun advocates consider a mandate for every American citizen to possess a handgun. If Trump, McEnany said, wants to distort Clinton’s positions, then that’s okay because “Hillary Clinton simplifies a lot of his policies.”

Trump has figured out how to get taxpayers to renovate one of his golf courses: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.
"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."
Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office
The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.
Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.
He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.
Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.
Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.
"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."
"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.
"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
