No Worries: Top Trump Advisor Says Riots Aren’t Violent

At first I was alarmed that a presidential candidate would attempt to intimidate his party by proclaiming that his followers would be justified to riot if he is not given the nomination regardless of whether he has a majority of delegates. But Branch Trumpidians have assured me with heavy use of the caps lock key that the Donald’s menacing warning was not technically a threat. Nor was it a call for violence, because Trump’s senior campaign advisor Sam Clovis says that riots aren’t violent:

If you define the pro-democracy protests that led to the Tiananmen Square massacre as riots, as Trump does, then this is correct. So far as I know, all the violence there was by the communist authorities, who Trump praised for demonstrating the “power of strength.”

On a tip from Kevin R.

  • Nobama

    So Dave, does this mean you will be supporting Hillary in November if Trump becomes the nominee?

    Refusing to vote for the Republican nominee in the general may as well be a vote for Hillary. And I say this as a Cruz supporter.

    I’ve held my nose and voted for the Republican nominee going all the way back to GHWB, and I don’t intend to stop now, especially with what’s at stake. At least voting for Trump will be like taking a sledgehammer to the globalists/Democrats/GOPe alike. I’ll take my chances with the final outcome. I still have far more faith in him to a least get some things right, more so than McCain or Romney.

    I’m still waiting for some to explain to me why a ‘New York liberal democrat’ was at the Republican convention way back in 1988, and even praising Dan Quayle at a time when it was anything but fashionable. Anyone? Anyone?

  • The jerkoff who got his ass kicked was a Leftist pinhead protesting in a Democrat uniform (KKK robe and hood) and a black dude beat his ass. Hell, as a WHITE man who supports Cruz or Trump, I’d held the scumbag for the guy beating on him.

    DO NOT fall for this old commie tactic of disrupting an opponents meeting/rally and then blaming the opponent for it!

  • If ALL Trump does is build a wall and run the illegal aliens out, I’d be happier than a pig in shit.

  • MicahStone

    Trump did RAISE HIS HANDS to stop any violence — but, of course, NOBODY could see them !!!!

  • IslandLifer

    They’re too busy with their heads up the globalists ass

  • IslandLifer
  • Ed. G. Mann

    If the Trump supporters bring the pickax handles, those riots won’t be violent for long. Or repetitive.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    There is an old, old saying that covers ground like this, “Don’t start fights; don’t lose fights.” Practice that for a long peaceful life.

  • Deep North

    Exactly! The republican establishment always told the American voter to hold our nose to keep a democrat out of office. So why not this time? Why such hostility to Trump. Trump poses a threat to the republican power structure.

    noun: riot; plural noun: riots
    a violent disturbance of the peace by a crowd.
    synonyms:violence, fighting, vandalism, mayhem, turmoil, lawlessness, anarchy, violent protest

    uncontrolled revelry; rowdy behavior.

    verb: riot; 3rd person present: riots; past tense: rioted; past participle: rioted; gerund or present participle: rioting
    take part in a violent public disturbance.

    Riots are a foregone conclusion now. I have told you for five years now that the current chain of events would end in civil war. The riots will be the opening battles of that war which has already begun.

    If Trump loses the nomination, riots.
    If Trump wins the nomination he will lose the general election to Hitlery and there will be riots against the tyranny she has planned.

    Sorry Trump Trolls, reality is your boy can’t win a general election. I know how enraged you all get when confronted by reality, like all Progressives. He loses to her by 6.3 points, 7.2 if you exclude the USA Today poll as an outlier. Meanwhile Cruz beats her by .08 up to 3 points of you exclude the NBC poll as an outlier.

  • Hungjumper

    I think we know where the disappearing donuts at Trump HQ have gone…….

  • 762×51

    Good thing that guy has shoulders, otherwise his cheeks would be in his coat pockets. His chin is about to be overrun by the rest of his face though.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Anyone who wasn’t in favor of the republicans in 1988 wasn’t paying attention to what Reagan had accomplished.

    The problem is that Trump is just as much of a RINO and GHWB. Neither believed in the conservative principles the way that Reagan did.

  • Jack Bauer

    Not stumping for Trump by any means, but I think the pols you’re citing are pure crap……..

    Consider the complete lack of logic in what is being suggested:

    “Trump can’t possibly beat Hillary in a general election but Cruz can”

    “Reality”, you say???

    Cruz, unless he wins something like 85% of the remaining primaries/caucuses (which is highly unlikely), can’t even win the Republican nomination.

    So, in essence, the most conservative candidate in the race, can’t win in a national vote that is over-weighted by Republicans and likely all available conservatives, but when we add in independents and Democrats that will vote in the general election, likely shifting the voting universe even more liberal—he THEN suddenly has a chance to win?

    Makes no sense whatsoever…… Time to retire the wishful thinking.

  • Nobama

    Good article from a Bernie-supporting Democrat–

    Why it’s time for a Trump Revolution.

    If Hillary wins, it certainly won’t be because there weren’t enough Democrats crossing over to Trump in order to send a msg to the establishment. It will be because Republican voters refused to vote for their Republican nominee.

  • Nobama

    You’ll get no argument from me on that. Only Cruz comes close to Reagan.

    But that wasn’t my point. My point is that Trump is no liberal democrat as many of his detractors keep repeating. No liberal Democrat would ever be caught dead at a Republican convention praising Dan Quayle. So to say that he’s no different than Hillary Clinton is just absurd…Almost as absurd as Trump trying to label Cruz as “Lyin Ted.”

    Over the years Trump has said very liberal things, but he’s also said some very conservative things (much more so conservative in recent years). Yes I share people’s concerns about his trustworthiness, but if it comes down to Clinton vs. Trump, the choice should be clear. Clinton is a definite disaster. It’s game over for our country. With Trump, we at least have a chance. And at the bare minimum we get to see the DC establishment rocked like never before. And that’s a very good thing.

  • Nobama

    What many of the “Trump can never beat Hillary” people don’t realize is that THEY are the reason why. I’ve seen polls showing 1/3 of Republicans saying that they will not vote for Trump in the general election. Their refusal to support the Republican nominee will get Hillary elected.

    Dave Blount, give it up you pudgy egghead (I saw your photo, you’re a goober), you lost get over it. While you’re on your knees beside Rich “GOPe Bitch” Lowry and the bespectacled poindexter, Georgie “My Lobbyist Wife Carries My Balls in Her Purse” Will, take the Cabal of Corruption’s (Chamber of Commerce) penises out of your mouths and wave “goodbye” to the paychecks they bestow upon you for betraying us as “we” have already won. Be forewarned we won’t forget your treachery and if you think “the Left” is “bad” you haven’t seen anything yet.

    It’s payback time!

    Either Donald J. Trump is the GOP nominee or we burn the whole friggin’ party to the ground.

    We ARE “Taking OUR Country Back”!

    We WILL “Make America Great Again”!

    We are voting for Donald J. Trump!

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Time to face facts. Trump actually is part of the establishment.

  • NJJoanJettFan

    Ask yourself “If Trump can’t win the General just why are Hillary and “the Left” ie, George Soros and his surrogates attacking him so viciously?”. The answer is their internal polling is showing them that Trump WILL win in November if he’s the GOP nominee.

    Never have I seen the Democrats try so hard to knock out a Republican candidate, with Trump ALL rules and “decorum” go out the window and it should be that way, we’ve handcuffed ourselves for far too long, it’s about time someone “took the gloves off” and since it’s Trump he WILL be getting my entire family’s vote.

  • NJJoanJettFan

    I held my nose and bit my tongue and voted for BOTH Willard “King of the Rats” Romney and John “Songbird” McCain now it’s time for our supposed “betters”, the party elites, the pencil-necks, eggheads, poindexters, and geeks to hold THEIR noses, bite THEIR tongues and pull the lever for OUR candidate, Donald J. Trump.

    It’s payback time!

    Vote Trump!

  • Tadpole

    The entire free world is behind the Donald. Here in Oz a recent poll showed 65% approval. I wish we had one of our own.

  • Kevin R.

    Well in that case you don’t need to care what is said here. Unless your objective is zero dissent by anyone. Trumpsters seem to turn violent when confronted with dissent.

  • Nobama

    Perhaps. In that case, there’s no harm done in voting for him in the general if he becomes the nominee. It will just be business as usual. But can’t we at least agree he would be better than Hillary, or any other Republican aside from Ted Cruz?

  • Tadpole

    If you don’t think it affects the entire world who America elects you are ill-educated. We don’t want another “progressive” one-worlder.

    Trump is a hammer with which the people will smash down the prog-GOP, and if Trump turns out to be just another leftie in disguise, he will go down just as fast as the rest. The people don’t worship Trump, they simply celebrate the arrival of a useful device for smashing down the old older.

  • 762×51

    It was the Real Clear Politics average of many national polls, I didn’t conduct them, I’m just showing the results. Follow the link and read the polls for yourself.

    I didn’t say Cruz was winning the R nomination. Trump has successfully fooled some of the people some of the time, as Lincoln said.

    Trump has far higher negatives than Cruz and even higher than the despicable Hillary Clinton. Given the choice in a general election, between Cruz and Hillary, people would choose Cruz, again, that is what the polling companies have determined, not me.

  • 762×51

    The same can be said for those who are supporting a NY Progressive for the Republican nomination. I think the number of Republicans who will not vote Trump in a general election is closer to 2/3 than 1/3 though. Remember that almost that many have already cast ballots for candidates other than Trump.

    Most of us are done holding our nose and voting for a dirty Progressive for President, or any other office for that matter. The cities now control all electoral politics and a Progressive like Trump plays well there. This is the same idiotic process and voters that have given us McCain, Romney, Graham, Boehner, Ryan, McConnell, etc.

    Trump vs. Clinton restated is
    NY Progressive vs. NY Progressive.

    It doesn’t matter who wins that race.

  • 762×51

    They know that he is on their side ideologically but cannot be controlled, Trump is for Trump, always has been. Progressives are all about control and they are a year or less away from their endgame which has been in process for over 100 years. They cannot afford a wildcard that could screw up that long game at the last minute.

    Vote for him if you want but you are voting for a Progressive.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    “Trump is no liberal democrat….”


    And Trump supports Planned Parenthood.
    Trump supported TARP.
    Trump supports government takeover of all banks.
    Trump supports universal healthcare, with the government picking up the tab.
    Trump supports tariffs on foreign goods, just like Bernie Sanders.
    Trump says he will bring his own, very talented people to run Washington (in other words, the problem isn’t the size and scope of government, it is simply who is running it…..kinda like there was nothing wrong with communism; the problem was the people running it.
    And Trump says you can’t deport people who have lived here 20 years.
    And Trump supported Obama, Hillary, and Harry Reid.

    I’m trying to find justification for why Trump isn’t a liberal democrat, and failing badly.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    In another response, you stated “And at the bare minimum we get to see the DC establishment rocked like never before.” A member of the establishment isn’t going to rock DC like never before. If you want to say that Trump will throw out the old cronies to be replaced by his cronies, I would agree. “Business as usual” simply will not work; we are treading water in the deep end of the pool.

  • Nobama

    First of all, if Trump really is part of the establishment, why is the GOPe ready to anything to stop him, including tearing the party in half and giving the election to Hillary? Never before have we ever seen the GOPe so deadset on destroying the party’s frontrunner. Sure doesn’t look like he’s part of the establishment to me.

    Secondly, I don’t believe it will be business as usual. I was simply giving the worst case scenario; that is, Trump gets in and starts schoomzing with the GOPe/Dems. That would certainly still be better than Hillary. He’d still likely get some good things done.

    I want Cruz to win, but realistically it may be Trump. Either option is better than a GOPe brokered candidate or Hillary.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Romney is in an all out effort to get rid of Trump. The rest of the GOPers……not really so much.

    The simple truth is that the GOP has self-destructed. GOP candidates were elected to stop Obama; and then they folded without a fight. The only folks that they really fought with was the conservative wing of the party.

    Romney had a perfect chance to win, but for any of a number of reasons, a portion of conservatives apparently sat home and decided not to vote.

    The same problem exists today; conservatives for any of a number of reasons will choose to not support either Trump of Cruz… Combine that with the usual level of voter fraud and the election goes to the left.

    I would have a hard time voting for Trump because he is that same kind of RINO that I swore I wouldn’t vote after 2008.

  • Nobama

    It’s not really that hard….

    Trump supports building a wall
    Trump supports deporting illegals
    Trump supports banning Musilim immigrant visas (at least temporarily)
    Trump supports banning Muslim refugees.
    Trump supports rebuilding our military
    Trump supports cutting taxes, especially corporate tax rates.
    Trump endorsed McCain and Romney in th last elections.
    Trump has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Republican candidates as well, including Ted Cruz.
    He is against Obamacare and prefers private solutions over public.
    He is against common core
    He is against tax payer funded abortions.

    None of these things are supported by liberal democrats.

    Has Trump flip flopped a bit on some of these things? Yes. Is he liberal on certain other issues. Yes. That just makes him just like all the other Republicans, except for maybe Cruz.

  • CTsOpinion

    Please, do the Republican Party and America a favor and leave the country now!

  • Kevin R.

    I see Trump has the nihilist vote all sewn up.

    The more Trumpsters talk the more they sound like disaffected leftists.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    Better go back and check your history on just exactly who Trump supported in 2008. Also check on who should foot the bill on paying medical expenses for the “poor.” And he continues to support Planned Parenthood.

    Much of what you think you know about Trump just ain’t so.

  • Nobama

    Trump endorsed McCain in 2008. He even praised Sarah Palin.

    And we already foot the bill for the poor. It’s called Medicaid. And by federal law no emergency room in the country can deny service to anyone. There are no “people dying in the streets” unless it’s by their personal choice. Not sure why Trump seems unaware. He needs better advisers. Seems like he’s starting to gear up more lately.

    Trump’s latest stance is not to fund abortions, but still fund Planned Parenthood. Again, he needs better advisers. Abortion is by far their primary service and it will be hard to fund one without the other. He needs to be told.

    Once again, I’m a Cruz voter. But I’ll vote for Trump if it means stopping Hillary in the general election, as should every other Repubican voter.

  • Mr. Freemarket In this article, Trump states that he supported Obama. Truth is that he is all over the map, and one can’t know what his real positions are.
