Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump tweeted that he “obviously” meant that additional guards or employees should have been armed at the Orlando nightclub where 49 people were killed and 53 others were injured last weekend. However, the word ‘obviously’ doesn’t mean what he thinks it means because he made that statement several times.
When I said that if, within the Orlando club, you had some people with guns, I was obviously talking about additional guards or employees

Here’s what Donald said, last week, in part.
“If people in that room had guns, with the bullets flying in the opposite direction right at him, right at his head, you wouldn’t have had the same tragedy that you ended up having,” Trump remarked.
“I hear the injured are so greatly injured,” he continued.
“But if you had guns in that room, even if you had a number of people having it strapped to your ankle or strapped to their waste, where bullets could have flown in the other direction right at him, you wouldn’t have had the same kind of a tragedy,” the GOP front-runner added.
And on Friday, the bombastic billionaire doubled down.
“If some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here — right to their waist or right to their ankle — and one of the people in that room happened to have it and goes ‘boom, boom,’ you know, that would have been a beautiful sight folks,” Trump said on Friday night, according to ABC.
Perhaps Trump is likely a bit embarrassed since even the NRA thinks it’s an insane concept to have an intoxicated armed person in a noisy club with strobe lights, ready to go all shooty uppy on another person with a gun.
But it took until now for the NRA to call out the candidate they endorsed.
While campaigning, Trump has often called for people to carry weapons in order to stop an active shooter/mass shooting situation.
“If in that club, you had some people, not a lot of people … but if you had somebody with a gun strapped on to their hip, somebody with a gun strapped on to their ankle and you had bullets going in the opposite direction, right at this animal who did this, you would have had a very, very different result,” Trump said at the Arizona State Fairgrounds on Saturday.
Here is Trump saying that thing everyone heard him say which he is now walking back.
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said this week that it’s homophobic to disallow guns in a nightclub. We cannot translate his statement. Sorry:(
