Jarrett: Feeling threatened, not warned

The Sunday Press Democrat ran an article about a Trump rally in Ohio titled “Trump warns of blood bath if he loses.”

As a voter and a citizen, I don’t feel “warned,” I feel threatened. His exact words were: “Now, if I don’t get elected, it’s going to be a bloodbath for the whole … country.”

I consider that a direct threat. He did not say precisely whose blood will be flowing: election officials, Democratic voters, or perhaps just citizens in the street.

He also stated that if he didn’t win, “I don’t think you are going to have another election, or certainly not an election that’s meaningful.”

Obviously, Mr. Trump never played Little League where kids are taught how to be good at sports about winning and losing. Instead, he vows to kneecap the opposing team if they score more runs, and cancel any future games.

Mr. Trump, you are a disgrace! Your behavior would not be tolerated on any tee ball field and yet here you are running for the highest office of the land.

Your threats to voters and citizens are both pathetic and dangerous. Is there nothing that can be done about these overt calls for violence against the American people?
