Trump tweeted today that it would be great fun and great for the country to revive bounty hunting. He suggested posters with photos of CNN reporters emblazoned with the words “Wanted dead or alive,” should go up all over America. “Enemies of the people,” he wrote. “They’re gonna start a war,” he clarified.
The Republican response was swift and clear. Mitch McConnell “distanced” himself from the president by stating, “The tweets were really about job creation,” while Paul Ryan agreed saying, “Bounty hunting was once an honorable profession—lots of good paying American jobs there for hard-working American gunmen.”
And remember—It Can’t Happen Here.
