In an apparent race to lose the confidence of US voters, Donald Trump is now out-treasoning Hillary Clinton by calling for the killing of the US families of ISIS fighters.
It all started when Donald Trump was called treasonous for asking Russian hackers to release damaging information on his rival Hillary Clinton.
Not wanting to have the spotlight stolen from her during the Democratic National Convention, Clinton broke into a full Benghazi Shuffle during her speech at the DNC: While accepting her party's nomination Clinton danced and sang, "Benghazi, Benghazi, private email server."
Trump vaulted his way back in to the spotlight that night suggesting at a rally that the families of Americans who join ISIS should be killed.
"When we take out their families we can start to get to the root of the problem, we'll keep the terrorists out because they won't have any place--they won't have any family to come back to."
Reactions against Trump's comments were swift and furious, yet some continued to defend him: masturbating under the news desk at PBS, airhead David Brooks denied that The Donald's comments were treasonous when questioned by Gwen Ifill.
"Donald had me at 'If Russia is listening,' Gwen, and even if calling for the killing of US families of ISIS supporters is just a rhetorical flourish, it's breath of fresh air the GOP desperately needs right now."
Appearing opposite Brooks, Mark Shields told Ifill that Clinton's risky Benghazi Shuffle strategy at the convention paid off because her rival took the bait.
"Hillary shrewdly calculated that the American voters are tired of hearing about Benghazi and her email problems, she knew any new outrage by Trump would get wall to wall coverage to distract from her own negatives, and that's just what his call to kill American families of ISIS fighters has done."
Brooks seemed confused by Shields' long sentence construction and lack of worship for The Donald, but Shields went on anyway.
"We are in uncharted territory because we now have two presidential candidates with the historically highest negative ratings ever: 75% of people polled say both candidates should be locked up for treason."
