    Look, Trump has proven to be the world's biggest - and most immature - blowhard over the past few months, but when he starts to chum up with the "Scalia was murdered" crowd and offers his tacit nod of approval, it's beyond stupidity - it's downright dangerous.

    Earlier today, Donald Trump chatted with far-right radio host Michael Savage, who has been voicing doubts that Justice Antonin Scalia died of natural causes, suggesting that foul play was involved.

    When Savage wondered if Scalia was "murdered" and asked Trump if he would support a Warren Commission-style investigation into the late justice's death, Trump said that while he doesn't have enough information to comment on whether Scalia was murdered or not, he said it was "pretty unusual" that he was found with "a pillow on his face."


    I see people on Facebook (no longer my friends) who believe every conspiracy theory in the world and this one is driving them to the dark side. They are grabbing at their guns and quoting bible verses of end times and calling for militia uprisings.

    This isn't a game anymore.

    He talks to everyone. He's been on with Alex Jones who thinks a lot crazier things than that.

    The Texas judge who pronounced Scalia dead OVER THE PHONE is named "Cinderela". You cannot make this shit up.

    I don't care who he talks to, but when the current leader of the republican nomination race insinuates that Scalia might have been murdered, it's disastrous.

    Not insinuating anything to say it's a strange report, it's been a headline on Drudge Report for like 48 hours lol. Just saying it's unusual is nothing.

    Drudge is a rabble-rouser who cares about one thing: Click-bait.

    Trump now has millions of political rubes who follow his every word.

    Trump will wind up running as an independent and split the Republican vote. Just like Ross Perot, another billionaire who had all the answers. History repeats.

    It's pretty weird. But OJ's the only one stupid enough to leave the pillow over his face and he's been accounted for.

    These are the types or rubes who take over wildlife reservations and think they are protecting the constitution.
