Trump jokes: ‘I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters’

trump-shootDuring a speech in Sioux Center, Iowa, GOP front-runner Donald Trump joked about the loyalty of his supporters.

“And you know what else they say about my people? The polls! They say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that? Where I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters. It’s incredible,” he said.

Here’s video, provided by CNN:

“I hope he doesn’t prove it!!!” said a post at the Right Scoop. “Now those are ‘New York values’!!”

Trump declined to clarify the comment, CNN said.

CNN added:

Trump has joked about killing people before.

Last month, he appeared to consider whether he would kill journalists, as Russian President Vladimir Putin — whom Trump defended — has been accused of doing.

“I would never kill them. I would never do that,” Trump told supporters in Grand Rapids, Michigan, before reconsidering.

“Uh, let’s see, uh?” he said aloud, his voice rising. “No, I would never do that.”

Some have said that Trump was quoting a pollster, but we have not yet been able to independently verify that.
