Trumps Jokes He Could 'Shoot Somebody' And Not Lose Voters

Trump's joke that he could 'shoot someone on New York's Fifth Avenue and still not lose votes or voters', a statement that hints of boundless ego and power, incredibly bad taste, or both, certainly draws uncomfortable parallels to Scindler's List balcony scene.

Trump's support appears to be based largely on the projection of power and confidence. Trump does that. Dwight D Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Allied forces in Western Europe and 34th President of the United States also projected power and confidence. History never recorded Eisenhower using poorly worded jokes to project it.

Headline: Confident Trump says could 'shoot somebody' and not lose voters

U.S. Republican front-runner Donald Trump expressed confidence on Saturday that he could push back attempts by his rivals to knock him off his top perch, saying he could stand on New York's Fifth Avenue "and shoot somebody," and still not lose voters.

Nine days from the first nominating contest in Iowa, however, it was Republican rival Marco Rubio who won the endorsement Saturday from the Des Moines Register, the state's biggest and most influential newspaper. On the Democratic side, the Register picked Hillary Clinton.
