Trump’s moral calculator

Trump is ramping up the authoritarian nonsense about putting Clinton in jail.

Donald Trump said Wednesday that Hillary Clinton “has to go to jail” because the scandal over her email server, comments that mark a major departure from the American political tradition.

And the outrageousness of it is all the more so given the multiple crimes he is alleged to have committed.

At a morning rally in Ocala, Trump said that he was “embarrassed” Congress had not done more to probe Clinton after the FBI decided not to seek charges against her over the private email server she used as secretary of state.

“Do they make deals like this?” Trump asked.

“This is the most heinous, the most serious thing that I’ve ever seen involving justice in the United States — in the history of the United States.”

“We have a person that has committed crimes that is now running for the presidency.”

The most heinous, the most serious thing that he’s ever seen involving justice in the United States – not slavery, not the genocide of Native Americans, not the internment of Japanese-Americans during WW2, not the Tuskegee experiment, not the many right-wing coups fostered by the CIA during the cold war…but a former Secretary of State’s use of a private email server.

What a moral pygmy he is.

Later on, after moving on to Lakeland, Florida, Trump again renewed his vow to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton if he is elected.

Clinton “has to go to jail,” Trump warned, adding that the lawyers working for her over the email issue should also be incarcerated.

And her dentist! And her best friend from third grade! And Sidney Blumenthal! And everyone she’s ever known!
