Ronald Reagan’s Daughter Blasts Trump’s ‘Verbal Violence’

In a Facebook post directed at the Republican presidential candidate, President Ronald Reagan’s daughter blasted Donald’s Trump’s “glib and horrifying comment” on the Second Amendment. “I am the daughter of a man who was shot by someone who got his inspiration from a movie,” the post by Patti Davis begins, referring to the 1981 assassination attempt on Reagan by John Hinckley Jr.(…) In the Facebook post, Davis, the eldest child of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, echoed this line of criticism, invoking her family’s experience with the 1981 shooting, which wounded the president and three others in Washington, D.C. Trump Says Maybe ‘2nd Amendment People’ Can Stop Clinton’s Supreme Court Picks Clinton Responds to Trump’s 2nd Amendment Comments: ‘Words Matter’ “Your glib and horrifying comment about ‘Second Amendment people’ was heard around the world,” the post reads. “It was heard by sane and decent people who shudder at your fondness for verbal violence. It was heard by your supporters, many of whom gleefully and angrily yell, “Lock her up!” at your rallies. It was heard by the person sitting alone in a room, locked in his own dark fantasies, who sees unbridled violence as a way to make his mark in the world, and is just looking for ideas.”
