Trump Adviser: Hillary Should Be Shot For Treason

New Hampshire State Representative and Donald Trump adviser Al Baldasaro recently said Hillary Clinton should be shot for treason. Still waiting on any pushback from the Republican party. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick?), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"A Donald Trump adviser and delegate has called for Hillary Clinton to be "shot for treason."

Al Baldasaro, an adviser to the Republican presidential nominee on veterans issues, called Clinton a "disgrace" for her handling of the Benghazi attacks.

"The whole thing disgusts me. Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason," Baldasaro said in an interview with "The Jeff Kuhner Show," first reported by BuzzFeed.

Baldasaro, a Trump delegate from New Hampshire, went on to call the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee the "Jane Fonda of the Vietnam."

"She is a disgrace for the lies that she told those mothers about their children that got killed over there in Benghazi. She dropped the ball on over 400 emails requesting backup security. Something's wrong there," he said. Later in the interview, he also called Clinton a "piece of garbage.””*

  1. So these inbreds wanna put Hillary on the firing line for treason, aren’t
    these the same traitors who say the confederacy is in there heritage? The
    biggest traitors in american history!!

      What are you talking about? They seceded because of what I said. They
      wanted to continue slavery and didn’t believe the federal government had
      the right to take away that right.

      Hence the south wanted to keep slavery = Saying the government shouldn’t
      have the right to take it away = seceding from the Union which was treason.
      My argument didn’t change at all. I didn’t “move the goalpost”. Again you
      need to work on your reading comprehension skills.

      Look at my first comment and look at the other ones. It’s simple why it
      occurred. The south wanted to keep slavery, then federally they banned it
      because its wrong to make another human being a slave.

      Therefore a war broke out because they didn’t think the federal government
      had the right to remove their “state rights” to slaves, therefore they
      committed treason.

      I didn’t change anything. Read my old and new comments. The point hasn’t
      changed. The only thing I did on the last comment was elaborate on why the
      government said you can’t secede. The point is still the same, they still
      committed treason and were not hero’s but traitors.

    • +Jonathan Gutierrez it’s not treason to secede from the union many states
      have that option in there state constitution like Texas and state rights
      involves a little more than slavey also the government has no right to a
      persons property and that is a noble war to fight

    • +soularch17
      Yes it was a treason. Do you know why? Because the south agreed with most
      amendments but when slavery came into the picture, they refused it. They
      believed they had the right to disagree and not pass federal legislation.

      They only betrayed the country when they believed they had the right to *own
      people as property*
      The government has COMPLETE right to own the property of the United States.
      The government owns all property which is why its taxable. As long as it is
      own US soil, then it is owned by the US government because we are protected
      by the US government. That is why it is their property.

      Every property(except for religious institutions lawl) needs to pay taxes
      for the US government because it is their property. If not paid, the
      government has the right to take back it’s area. That is why it was treason.

      Also the “state rights” you speak about, the main thing that flared the
      civil war was the fact that the south wanted to continue slavery. It’s very
      simple, they believe they had the state right to do so. The federal
      government said no, and then the war began.

      Again it isn’t difficult to grasp. If you want to paint the picture as “the
      south defended themselves from the mean old federal government”, you can
      freely do so. But make no mistake, they just didn’t want to abide from
      banning slavery. If that issue never came up, the civil war wouldn’t of
      occurred and we wouldn’t be talking about this.

      The south was truly a piece of garbage in that time for trying to keep
      slavery, and they definitely were not “hero’s”

    • +Jonathan Gutierrez you believe the civil war was about slavey and Iraq was
      about weapons of mass destruction and the government goes to war for
      justice and morality I get it. I don’t have the energy to argue with a
      statist. I’m done

  2. Get used to it…the mob is moving into the white house. Trump wants to
    charge protection fees to other countries…mafia rule!

    • Absolute and the fact that AIPAC hates trump AND he spent his own money
      tells me that he can’t possibly be one of em. And I have never been a trump
      fan so my endorsement is significant

  3. when a right wing makes these type of statements… it seem is alright…
    although if the person would be a center or left wing… right wing people
    want them crucified…

    • So a few guys chant “fry them like bacon” at a blm protest and they are a
      hate group. Personal consultants to the GOP presidential candidate call for
      the assassination of their primary political opponent, does that make the
      gop a terrorist organization by their logic

  4. Dangerous right wing rhetoric .. Al Baldasaro should shut his damn mouth.
    S.S. and the FBI should pay Al Baldasaro a visit .

  5. Bulbasaur isn’t right, but he ain’t wrong about Hillary either. I wouldn’t
    want Hillary as my Charmander-In-Chief but I wouldn’t want Trump with his
    Ghastly ideas either.

  6. I don’t like Hillary Clinton but this is extremely unfair. Hillary doesn’t
    deserve this to this extent. I swear old white people have no bounds

  7. USA will split like USSR did
    Because of phonies like trump

    • +goodfella21f
      People should never hate people who disagree with them respectfully and
      peacefully otherwise, they are not people like trump how hates everyone who
      disagrees with even and , even called him/her names that only the worse
      people use . We are losing our humanity faster than ever .

    • +MrArjun CH 1) Donald Trump has retweeted fake statistics on black on white
      crime from a white genocide off of Twitter.
      2) He was a staple in the racist birther movement against Barack Obama back
      in 2011.
      3) He has demonised the black lives matter movement on several occasions.
      4) He pretended not to know who David Duke was in order to side step him
      having to disavow his vote.

      Bringing up examples where Hilary Clinton has made racist statements is not
      going to make Donald Trump appear more softer to black people.

    • I have not stated that I support Hilary if that’s what you’re implying,
      foreign policy was not the subject at hand. I simply stated that you cannot
      use Hilary Clinton’s anti-black rhetoric to subdue black Americans into
      supporting Donald Trump. I did not mean to come across rude I’m sorry if
      you felt like I did.

    • +siIverspawn No idea what you’re talking about? It has a fairly specific

    • They are paid to do so. They create concensus by agreeing with each other.
      They did it in the RObme campaign too. When the checks stopped they
      vanished overnight.

  8. WE’RE NOT BACK IN 1799
    look who’s about to be U.S President! TRUMP CAN KILL SOMEONE IN PUBLIC and
    THAT’S OKAY as per GOP. America is losing its place FAST!!!, please be
    careful… the World is watching…WRONG ROUTE.WRONG TURN!!


    • You’re German. Your position regarding our politics is already irrelevant.
      Enjoy Angela Merkel and Putin taking over your weak nation.

    • Just ask for a link. They usually can’t find one, even though you’d think
      the evidence that convinced them of the position in the first place would
      be in their browsing history or something.

    • With Hillary all things stay the same. With Trump, racism becomes
      institutionalized again. With Jill Stein we can make a move towards a true

    • +Revolutionary Socialist Media That’s a vote for trump.You’re to the far
      far left. Its going to be trump or hillary, pick your poison.

    • +Revolutionary Socialist Media how is Trump racist, sir? I assume to have
      evidence to support your accusation?

    • +r13lilwendz read the history of his life and his fathers live.That’s
      plenty of proof..
      When you call people born in this country mexicans,that is racist.
      Or look a black guy at one of his rallies, that’s MY AS IN MY African
      The central park 5.I can go on an on if you like.

  9. Trump’s response, *”We’re going to take a look at that. We’re going to keep
    all our options open because we have to bring law and order back to America
    and make America great again.”*

  10. Why do republicans want her indicted? Anyone who replaces her, Joe Biden or
    Bernie Sanders do better against Trump. If I were a pure democrat, I would
    want Hillary indicted…

    • +mightymissk she was also cleared of her emails, does that Also mean she is
      innocent of that? everyone knows that Hillary is a criminal and gets away
      with it. I think that the FBI director and everyone else involved in
      Hillary Clinton scandals should be indicted and arrested.

    • Lol Bernie will lose as bad as Dukakis or Mcgovern. Americans will not
      elect a far leftist. Moderate Dems like myself wouldnt vote for him.

    • The ones that can think do not want her indited. They just want to fire up
      the stupid mass of followers they have so they get out and vote.

    • +marklolwins A trial for what?
      9 (republican led) congressional investigations, the FBI, and the Attorney
      General have all came to the conclusion there is nothing there. And Trump’s
      advisor concludes that calls for a firing squad? How can you not see this
      is batshit crazy?

    • +Milojacks well treason is a pretty broad term. for instance, id say the 5
      Supreme court justice’s that voted in favor of citizens united are all
      guilty of treason. selling out your country and its people to the highest
      bidder ID say is treason, especially when then Clinton foundation has taken
      some 3 billion+ dollars in bribes so far, and a large portion of that came
      from foreigners, 100s of millions from the Chinese. if she’d sale out the
      American people to fracking companies, private prisons, big pharma, banks,
      predatory payday lenders, banks, wall Street, Israel, and all the horrible
      trade deals that only benefit huge multinational corporations, why wouldn’t
      she also sell us out to any foreign government thatll buy her a new yacht?

    • She didn’t commit treason. Cheney committed treason when he outed an
      undercover CIA agent. Fact.
