Didn't see it,but heard about it. Whether he was joking or not,I don't know. I'll look it up later. But we have this thing called elections and no one is going to stand by and let any president stay in office longer than they are due. He's put there by the people. Funny thing is a hear an awful lot of libs saying they want Obama back,CNN says it all the time. So once again,as long as its their president that is in office they don't care. And you think progressives aren't trying to stay in power longer you're fooling yourself.They'd put Obama back in in a heartbeat and never let him go.

If the US gets rid of term limits, I blame Obama. Just preemptively.

Looks like people cannot identify sarcasm when they see it. Just more Fake News by the people who are so blinded by hate for Trump that they don't even know when he is joking. Perhaps he never should have made those comments, given the climate of hatred that exists in the MSM. The American, Canadian, and British media are all controlled by the same cabal that insists that Trump is an idiot, when he is the one having the last laugh.

Trump says he wants to confiscate guns without due process and execute drug dealers. That doesn't sound dictator like at all...

We need to be careful that we quote EXACTLY what Trump said. That was not about BLANKET confiscation. Here is what he said:

President Trump called Wednesday for confiscating guns from people who are mentally ill without waiting for a court order...

Nothing wrong with that, since crazies should not have guns in the first place. One crazy shot himself in front of the White House the other day to prove Trump's point.

As to executing drug dealers, since they profit from pushing poison, their execution would definitely make a difference. I believe he was referring to the major players who make millions off drugs. Had all the cartel bosses been executed, the trade in drugs would have been reduced to a trickle.

LOL Too funny! That's what the right-winged fringe kept saying Obama was going to do.

Crazy meets crazy.

Felons and mentally ill people should not be gun owners. Same goes for drug addicts, alcoholics etc.

I agree with Trump on that.

The drug dealing business is another story. The major problem is that the drug business is foreign policy more than a crime.

"War on drugs" is more literal than many thinks. I don't even know whether the term "executing" is the correct legal term, or if KIA would be describing reality better.

Anyways, KIA would save us a lot of legal jibber jabber.

This was clearly a joke. But an unseemly one for a President.

Reagan deployed humor against tyranny and, to the best of my knowledge, never did so to flatter it.

Having said that, I'm not surprised.

What you are forgetting is Obama's agenda to trample on the Constitution and establish a lawless state. Operation Fast and Furious is a good example.

You are quite right. Some things cannot be joked about and every word spoken by the POTUS has major repercussions.

Trump was joking. The crowd bursts out in laughter as soon as he said it.

That is one of the big hurdles to keeping firearms out of the hands of mentally unbalanced people. If they legally buy them, then "go nuts", how do you get the guns back? Have a court determine mental status, then issue an order for confiscation?

Fine... on the surface that sounds reasonable (except for the poor schlubs that have to go knock on the door and demand that the crazy person hand over his guns.... )

...... BUT... who gets to decide what is "legally incompetent".... what if a liberal/progressive/atheist judge decides that anyone that believes in the Bible, or is a "born again Christian" is somehow mentally disabled? Or, if you use corporal punishment on your kids, you are somehow abusive and mentally unstable... Or, if you are a member of the "Tea Party", you are mentally unstable.

You see how this could go south pretty quickly?

"Oh, we're only going to restrict sales on ASSAULT RIFLES".... now, we get to define what an "assault rifle" is.... funny, but that definition includes about 2/3 of all firearms being sold.... semi-automatic .22 rimfires, shotguns, pistols.....

This is why many of the so-called "gun nuts" want NO more infringement on the right to keep and bear.....

the cops being called on someone 26 times would be a good place to start

Teaching them to fear God is even better. Teaching them that God casts murderers into the lake of fire is useful information to folks that would engage in such heinous activities.

Hind sight is never a good plan. Some will act without advance warning.

For the cause of Christ
