Introducing Donald Trump at a Las Vegas campaign rally last night, conservative activist Wayne Allyn Root fantasized about Hillary Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin driving their car off a cliff, “Thelma and Louise” style.
Before leading the crowd in a chant of “lock her up,” Root called for an uprising and told the “D.C. elites,” “We’re coming to kick your ass and we’re coming to put you in prison.”
He then delved into the FBI’s recent revelation that it may have found emails pertinent to its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during an unrelated investigation of former Rep. Anthony Weiner, Abedin’s estranged husband:
Santa Claus takes care of good boys and girls, and the deplorables have been very, very good, so Santa took care of us and the FBI has given us Christmas in October! Merry Christmas, deplorables! You know what the name of the new scandal is? ‘Dickileaks.’ Can you imagine? Hillary and Huma have been done in by a leaking ‘Weiner.’ I heard a rumor that while we’re all gathered here, all the networks have wall-to-wall coverage of a live police chase and it’s Hillary in a white Ford Bronco. She’s got Huma driving and they’re heading for the Mexican border. I have a name for the future TV movie: It’s called ‘Driving Ms. Hillary.’ And the ending, if we all get our wish, the ending is like ‘Thelma and Louise’!
Later, Root predicted that an imminent WikiLeak email release will “lock her up,” while lamenting that “we will never again elect another Republican as president if Donald Trump isn’t elected on November 8th because Hillary will open the borders like never before, she will legalize every illegal already here, she will import millions of poorly vetted Muslims, she will appoint not one but up to four Supreme Court justices who will make every unconstitutional move she makes legal. So you see, if Trump loses, we’re outvoted, forevermore, we will never elect another Republican for president in our lifetime. So it’s Trump, or it’s the end of the GOP and the end of America.”
“This is the moment of your lives,” he said. “This is why we were born…. Fight like cornered Wolverines. Attack! Attack! Attack!”
“I will give you my country when you pry it from my cold, dead hands,” he said.
He has been one of Trump’s most sycophantic supporters, hailing the GOP nominee as a godsend who could never have groped women against their will because he’s “one of the handsomest billionaires that’s ever lived.”
This is in contrast to President Obama, whom Root has called a “psychopath” and likened to “the Antichrist” and believes is bent on stoking a “civil war” and “spreading unrest” in order “to declare martial law.”
In 2014, Root said President Obama “was sent here to destroy this country,” possibly by “the Bilderbergs that want the world under One World control” or “the Soviet Union,” and should be “removed” from office before he uses the Ebola virus to literally kill Americans. “We’ve got to remove him from office and fast, before he kills all of us,” he said.
Root also promotes a completely contradictory conspiracy theory that Obama both was trained to be a communist agent during his classes at Columbia University and that Obama never once attended class at Columbia University.
Root maintains that Democrats win elections by voting 10 times each, but also thinks that people who “collect welfare” and women who get “free contraception” through the Affordable Care Act should not be allowed to vote.
Unsurprisingly, Trump also doubted that Obama attended Columbia, called Obama a “psycho” for the way he handled the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, warned of Democrats committing voter fraud by voting 10 times each and has been similarly intent on making sure everyone knows that he’s very handsome.
