It's truly unfortunate what happened to Donald Trump Tuesday. To have one's words all twisted and misconstrued—it's rather unfair. First, here's what the Republican nominee said: "Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish the Second Amendment. By the way, and if she gets to pick … and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don't know."

Trump said "I don't know." If I'm hearing him right (and maybe I'm not!), he's saying he doesn't know if assassination is the way to go or not. Also the phrase "maybe there is" is left unfinished. "Maybe there is a better way than having to assassinate her" might have been the whole thought, but again, we just don't know. So we shouldn't jump to conclusions.

Nevertheless, Trump seems to be prone to these verbal gaffes, whether it is confusion over the invasion (or impending invasion) of Ukraine, telling a mother and baby to stay and later leave, etc. So here's some free advice for the next time our Republican candidate slips up when making a reference to Hillary that the mainstream media will misinterpret as something hostile and dangerous.

Ten Remedies for Gaffes Misconstrued as Death Threats:

1) "Soon it'll be curtains for Hillary. That is, curtains on her public life after I beat the living daylights out of her. That is, after I politically beat her in this election!"

2) "I hope she gets bumped off … her pedestal. She acts so high and mighty!"

3) "Hillary needs to get whacked … in the behind because she's been a bad girl!"

4) "Somebody needs to off her. I mean offer her—like, offer her a cup of coffee or something because lately she's been so low energy."

5) "She should try on some cement shoes … which she can easily lift with those powerful ankles of hers!"

6) "I'll make her an offer she can't refuse: Hillary, I will pay you $100 million not to run."

7) "Tonight, Hillary will be sleeping with the fishes. And by fishes I mean her supporters—they're all cold fish!"

8) "Someone ought to take care of her. And by 'take care of' I mean nurture and love!"

9) "Kill her. I mean killer. Like, this rally is killer!"

10) "Murder! Death! Kill! Oh, sorry, I was just thinking about one of my favorite films, Demolition Man. It's terrific, folks."

If Trump can memorize these lines or keep a crib sheet close by, he'll crush her. In the debates, that is.
