Trump: I Could 'Shoot Somebody' and Not Lose My Supporters
Donald Trump is definitely no stranger to controversy.
But this weekend, the GOP presidential front-runner took heat for comments that he directed at a new group – his supporters.
“My people are so smart,” Trump told the crowd in Sioux Center, Iowa on Saturday. “And you know what else they say about my people? … They say I have the most loyal people.”
He continued: “I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like, incredible.”
The next day in Muscatine, Iowa, Trump defended his use of tough rhetoric, but vowed to take a “softer” approach.
“Maybe the attitude will be tougher, but the words will be softer,” he said.
The Five reacted to Trump’s remarks on Monday.
Julie Roginsky commented that the presidential candidate was “condescending to his own supporters,” while Dana Perino said “the reason it was funny is cause there’s always a little bit of truth to anything that is humorous.”
