If Trump gets anymore controversial, he could be the first candidate to receive classified briefings that include the threat of himself. His remarks about the Second Amendment and Hillary Clinton (“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although, the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”) have once again raised the ire of everyone from journalists to top players in his own party. It’s also a comment that should be rejected by gun owners.

+ Long before anyone in the media had a chance to react, the comment was all over Twitter.

+ Rudy served up the least helpful defense of all time: “With a crowd like that, if that’s what they thought he’d meant, they’d have gone wild.”

+ Was it a joke? Maybe. Was it a gaffe? Possibly. Was it really a call for an assassination. Nah. But those factors might not make a difference. From Tom Friedman: “And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin got assassinated.”

+ And in rare news from the other side of the campaign, for Hillary Clinton, more emails means more problems.
