Just one day after trying to signal that he is “getting on message” by giving his economic speech in Detroit reading from a teleprompter, Donald Trump was back to raising controversy, this time in a speech at a rally in North Carolina.
Speaking at a rally at the University of North Carolina, Trump was talking about the importance of the next Supreme Court justice picks and repeating his long debunked claim that Hillary Clinton was trying to repeal the 2nd Amendment.
Trymp said, “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.” Twitter erupted after his remarks. Here are some of the top tweets in response to Trump’s remarks:

In the general pattern of Trump damaging everything and everyone he touches, he's now hurting the cause of defense of the 2nd Amendment.

Well, that reboot didn't take long to go off the rails again.

Trump needs to hire a drummer. A rimshot could let us know when he's jokin' about having Hillary assassinated. https://t.co/gR1Kb98m67

We "2nd Amendment folks" aren't wanton murderers, despite what Trump thinks. https://t.co/20QwP5YeXT
