At a Trump rally in Las Vegas on Sunday, author and self-described “capitalist evangelist” Wayne Allyn Root said that he hopes Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton dies in a fiery crash in an incoherent rant that mixed aspects of several movies and the OJ Simpson trial.
Mediaite reported that Root — author of the book Angry White Male — flattered the crowd and pumped them up by calling them “Trump warriors” and the “Trump army” that will “take this country back” in a “Trump revolution.”
He then mixed up scenes and plot points from Driving Miss Daisy, Thelma and Louise and the Simpson case in an unhinged rant.
“It’s Hillary in a White Ford Bronco,” Root shouted. “She’s got Huma driving and they’re headed for the Mexican border. I have a name for the future TV movie. It’s called Driving Miss Hillary. And the ending, if we all get our wish, is like Thelma and Louise!”
The crowd roared its approval.
“I will give you my country when you pry it from my cold dead hands,” he added.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
