In his most recent effort to see how far he can take this thing while still being taken seriously, Republican nominee for President Donald J. Trump told reporters on Thursday that he wanted to violently assault speakers at the 2016 DNC for saying mean things about him.

“You know what, I wanted to, I wanted to hit a couple of those speakers so hard. I would have hit them. No, no. I was going to hit them, I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor,” Trump said.

Apparently this unnamed governor was successful in stopping tough guy Trump from flying to Philadelphia and unleashing a one man assault on the DNC. Which he totally would have, you guys. He would have clocked them all with his not at all small hands until they were seeing Elephants.

Trump took exception with one speaker in particular, whom he describes only as “a very little guy.”

“I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spin. He wouldn’t know what happened. He came out of nowhere!” Trump yelled.

It is suspected that he was talking about Clinton‘s vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, who did an impression of Trump during his speech.

Now, it is possible Trump was speaking figuratively, as in “hit them” with facts and arguments against their policies and visions for America. He has used the term in that way in the past.

Actually, that is giving him too much credit. But maybe he meant hit them by dishing out insults about their appearance, as he is wont to do.

But Trump’s rallies do have a history of real violence, both from those with and those against Trump, and he does have a history of promoting it.

When a protester was removed from a rally in Las Vegas, Trump said he would like to “punch him in the face” and waxed nostalgic about the “old days” when “guys like that…would be carried out on a stretcher.”

He also encouraged his supporters at a rally in Iowa to “knock the crap out of” anyone who might want to “lob a tomato” at him.

“Seriously. Okay? Just knock the hell —  I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees. I promise, I promise. It won’t be so much ’cause the courts agree with us too,” he said.

Meanwhile, he blames Obama for the country’s violence.
