Do you remember that from August of 2016?
Did you wonder if any of Trump's supporters actually got fired up enough to make actual threats against Hillary Clinton?
Well wonder no more.
These are today's tweets from journalist Michael Best who specializes in reporting on the intelligence community.

Could you even imagine how badly this might have gone?
After all Donald Trump's supporters are some of the angriest, mentally unbalanced crackpots that we have seen since the McCain Palin rallies of 2008.
These are the types of folks who see the solution to just about every problem as a bullet, and all it takes to set them off is a simple traffic incident, neighborhood confrontation, or careless presidential candidate and the next thing you know the air is filled with lead.
And there Donald Trump was, pouring gasoline ALL OVER those burning embers.
