The President of the United States is inciting political violence. Again.

Trump talking to the True believers at Breitbart:

“I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad."

He's basically saying that cops, military and biker gangs will use violence against his political opponents if they become too unhappy with what they are saying.

There's just no other way to read that.

This is the implicit threat he's making about the election. If he loses, he will say it was stolen and he will unleash his supporters to commit violence in his name.  The question is whether or not anyone but the fringe will take him up on it.  Cops and the military? Well, if that happened we would be in a new world.
