The real message behind Trump’s “I could shoot someone” statement. Listen up, Trump supporters, because he’s talking to you:
Of course he doesn’t really mean he can shoot anybody, because he’d go to jail. But he did say it, and whether he meant to reveal it or not, his message is that the people who are following him are too stupid to stop supporting him, even if he really was dangerous.
He has as much contempt for the judgement of his followers (you) as he does for the rest of America. He think’s you’re idiots, and he’s counting on that. He’s playing you like a violin.
