Ronald Reagan's Daughter Blasts Donald Trump's "Horrifying" Second Amendment Comments
The late President Ronald Reagan survived an assassination attempt early in his presidency, in 1981.
So when his daughter, Patti Davis, heard Donald Trump's "Second Amendment people" comment this week — which many interpreted as Trump inciting violence against Hillary Clinton — Davis took to Facebook to call him out.
"Your glib and horrifying comment about 'Second Amendment people' was heard around the world," Davis wrote. "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," she added.
She ended her post by saying that "words matter."
"You know that," Davis said. "Which makes this all even more horrifying."
This is not the first time the offspring of Reagan — whom conservatives revere as one of history's best presidents — have spoken out against Trump.
Michael Reagan, who was born from Reagan's first marriage, said in June that his father "would not support the nominee of the GOP" if he were alive today.
