Oh, it was just a joke.  Much like the one who spoke those words.

I thought it was his best line and she certainly deserved it.

For his supporters, yes.

For anyone who hasn't made up their mind, no.

Ask yourself, had Hillary promised to toss Trump in jail is she wins... would that send chills down your spine?

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

A good rule of thumb, just remove the names and parties to determine if you are being honest in your application.

Throwing political opponents in jail is third world crap, not something the President of the United States does.

It was the most stupid comment imaginable. Yes every true conservative Trump supporter or not,  would love to see Hillary  prosecuted and punished,  but these debates are not being held to sway Conservatives or Liberals for that matter - but Swing Voters, most of which are women. That same demographic needed to win the Swing States are horrifically turned off by that sort of "vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord Trump" talk.

Classic Trump's misstatement.

The idea may or may not be wrong. But he should have said, you will be on trial, instead of saying that she would be in jail. IMHO.

Of course he is known for bombast so there's no reigning him in that I can imagine.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

In other words, you are projecting your belief in what you wanted him to say on him.

and trying to blame her for her husbands wrong-doings isn't going to fly. (much less because Trump was defending Bill and trashing those victims just a few months before he joined the race)

No. No projection. I have become numb to Trump's saying the right thing in the wrong way. He does it so often.

He posters here have expressed frustration with Trump's habit of shooting himself in the foot just when things are going best for him.

More Democrat talking points...Luntz did a focus group that showed undecideds heavily favoring Trump after the debate.

18 people. 

Two scientific polls showed Hillary winning the debate in both.

Respectfully, allowing powerful politicians to skate where any one of us would do jail time is third world crap.

A hot take by a focus group of actual undecided voters is more valuable than skewed media polls.

scientific polling is an oxymoron.

We may not yet live in a third world country, but we most certainly already have a third world government and judicial system.

If you are famous or mega wealthy or connected, you very little need to fear "laws". Law is for the serfs and the peasantry.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.

Exactly.  If you find that objectionable, why are you excusing Trump for threatening the same thing?  That simply makes you a hypocrite (as if we needed more evidence of that).

Yup. Had he tried to explain WHY he'd have damaged her and given them little recourse to spaz.

A cabinet secretary repeatedly mishandles/loses (sells?) top secret information, lies about it, destroys evidence, and has her staff do the same...all while receiving hundreds of millions of dollars to a 'charitable' foundation in her name from foreign governments  and people doing business with the United States.

Yep...sounds like some serious felonies requiring jail time to me.  :police:

The administration the person worked for intervenes in and impedes the investigation, loses or destroys evidence and misleads Congress in pursuit of its oversight responsibilities.

Yep...sounds like some more serious felonies requiring jail time to me.  :police:

Of all the stuff to slam Donny on, this is at the lowest end of importance. Quite honestly he could have gone over to Hitlary and cold cocked her and I wouldn't care. She is a piece of garbage that should be beat with a sock full of oranges as far as I'm concerned.
