Another day, another dangerous comment.

That was last night. This morning the walking hazmat suit doubled down.

As an aside, CNN is reporting that the walking menace was spoken to by the Secret Service regarding his 2nd amendment comments. t-Rump denied the story:

And then there is this very interesting item...

Donald Trump on Wednesday night admonished Hillary Clinton for having the father of the Orlando shooter seated behind her at a recent campaign rally.

"Wasn't it terrible?" Trump asked, that Seddique Mateen was "sitting with a big smile on his face right behind Hillary Clinton ... When you get those seats, you sort of know the campaign."

But as he said those words, disgraced former Congressman Mark Foley smiled up at him from behind the stage.

Foley, a Republican who represented southern Florida, was forced to resign his seat in September 2006 in the wake of allegations that he sent sent suggestive emails and instant messages to congressional pages. The former congressman shared Trump's camera shot, with a smile, for the entirety of the hour-long rally.

The candidate himself turned around multiple times, once during the Mateen riff against Clinton, asking the attendees seated behind him, "How many of you people know me? A lot of people know me."

Foley, among others, raised his hand and waved in response.

Foley told NBC News' Thomas Roberts immediately after the rally via text message that "yes" he is a Trump supporter. "He's been a friend of mine for 30 years and one of my biggest contributors," Foley wrote.

This Marc Foley, these Republicans:
The Mark Foley scandal, which broke in late September 2006, centers on soliciting e-mails and sexually suggestive instant messages sent by Mark Foley, a Republican Congressman from Florida, to teenaged boys who had formerly served as congressional pages. Investigation was closed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) on September 19, 2008 citing insufficient evidence to pursue criminal charges as both "Congress and Mr. Foley denied us access to critical data", said FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bailey. The scandal grew to encompass the response of Republican congressional leaders to previous complaints about Foley's contacts with the pages and inconsistencies in the leaders' public statements. There were also allegations that a second Republican Congressman, Jim Kolbe, had improper conduct with at least two youths, a 16-year-old page and a recently graduated page.

The scandal led to Foley's resignation from Congress on September 29, 2006. In some quarters, the scandal is believed to have contributed to the Republican Party's loss of control over Congress in the November 7, 2006 election, as well as the end of House Speaker Dennis Hastert's leadership of the House Republicans. Kirk Fordham, chief of staff to Rep. Tom Reynolds and former chief of staff for Foley, also resigned as a result of the scandal.

This Mark Foley: In 2005, Foley sent five e-mails to a 16-year-old former page from Monroe, Louisiana who had been sponsored by Rep. Rodney Alexander (R–LA). They were the first messages to be made public in the scandal. (...)

After the initial story on the e-mails, other pages contacted ABC and The Washington Post, providing transcripts of sexually explicit instant messaging (IM) conversations from 2003 that Foley had with two pages who were under the age of 18 at the time. (...)

ABC News reported on October 5 that in 2002, Foley e-mailed one page with an invitation to stay at the congressman's home in exchange for oral sex. The page, who was 17 years old at the time, declined the offer. The same report stated that he e-mailed another with a request for a photograph of his erect penis.

Foley has been friends to t-Rump for thirty years he says. That makes this particular lawsuit that isn't getting any coverage even more disturbing.

Claiming it's bad optics on Hillary's part is laughable at this point. t-Rump is palling around with an alleged pedophile.
