Charles Krauthammer said Donald Trump would shoot someone on 5th Avenue if Twitter broke down.
Krauthammer was referring to a joke Trump made during a rally in Sioux City, Iowa in January. Krauthammer didn’t think it was funny.
Krauthammer: Think about what has just happened. He runs in a state where he’s up against a popular governor who has a very strong machine. He’s also up against, this is Trump, very sophisticated, very influential talk radio. He’s also up against a ton of money. A huge amount was dropped on him. It wasn’t only the Cruz money but it was the Stop Trump PACs dropped millions of dollars on him. And on top of all of that it comes after the worst two of his campaign… If, in spite of all of that, Trump comes in with the high 30s, then he has the most rock-solid floor of support of any candidate in memory. Trump said he could walk out on 5th Avenue. He could do that tonight, and I suppose if his Twitter ever broke down he might do that, and shoot somebody and he wouldn’t lose a vote.
