Trump Speaker Warms Up Crowd With Bizarre Hillary-Huma Death Fantasy

During a speech at a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas on Sunday, Wayne Allyn Root envisioned Hillary Clinton and her top aide, Huma Abedin, dying in a fiery car crash.

“I heard a rumor, I don’t know if you’ve heard this rumor, but while we’re all gathered here, all the networks have wall-to-wall coverage of a live police chase,” the 2008 Libertarian vice-presidential candidate and author of “Angry White Male” said. “And it’s Hillary in a white Ford Bronco! She’s got Huma driving, and they’re headed for the Mexican border.” 

Root added: 

“I have a name. I have a name. I have a name for the future TV movie, it’s called ‘Driving Miss Hilary,’ and the ending, if we all get our wish, the ending is like the end of ‘Thelma and Louise.’”

The comments were similar to those Root made in a column that was published on Friday. A right-wing conspiracy theorist, Root has ― among other things ― called President Barack Obama a “Manchurian candidate.”   

“We may yet see Hillary and Huma in that white Ford Bronco making a run for the Mexican border,” Root wrote in the Las Vegas-Review Journal. “Let’s hope President Trump has erected a wall by then.”
