CALIFORNIA—(ENEWSPF)—August 12, 2016. On her Facebook page, Patti Davis, daughter of former Republican President Ronald Reagan and First Lady Nancy Reagan, wrote a blistering note to Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump about his remarks that “Second Amendment people” should do something about Hillary Clinton.
To Donald Trump:
I am the daughter of a man who was shot by someone who got his inspiration from a movie, someone who believed if he killed the President, the actress from that movie would notice him.
Your glib and horrifying comment about “Second Amendment people” was heard around the world. It was heard by sane and decent people who shudder at your fondness for verbal violence.
It was heard by your supporters, many of whom gleefully and angrily yell, “Lock her up!” at your rallies.
It was heard by the person sitting alone in a room, locked in his own dark fantasies, who sees unbridled violence as a way to make his mark in the world, and is just looking for ideas.
Yes, Mr. Trump, words matter. But then you know that, which makes this all even more horrifying.
