It was only March when Sen. Chuck Schumer spoke to a pro-abortion crowd in front of the Supreme Court building and said that Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch would “pay the price” for unleashing a whirlwind if they didn’t side with the pro-choice crowd. That was then, though, and this week, after two decisions that went against the Trump administration, Schumer said he was shedding tears of joy.
President Trump has been tweeting quite a bit about the Supreme Court decisions, but this is the one that triggered MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!

Even though Trump said the decisions were shotgun blasts from the justices to conservatives, Scarborough believes Trump’s violent rhetoric was clearly meant to incite violence against the justices.
Trump’s violent rhetoric about Supreme Court members firing “shotgun blasts into the face” of Americans, while claiming the court will abolish the 2nd Amendment, is violent rhetoric clearly intended to inflame extremists and spark violence against judges.

How many times is Trump going to "inflame extremists and spark violence" and nothing actually happens before you knuckleheads stop making this ridiculous claim? https://t.co/8qUfyJBddM

The left-wing media frets over #2A Trump tweets that "incite violence" when the most violent protest the right wing has engaged in over the last month brought guns & shot nothing. Meanwhile left-wing violence killed dozens & destroyed millions in property. https://t.co/rgAIcgx3bM

Admit it, @JoeNBC
You have "inflame extremists and spark violence against" saved as a one button macro on your computer for reporting on what President Trump says, don't you? https://t.co/ezOA7ccsCG

That sounds more like what you & Mika do, right Joe? You both lie & omit facts with impunity, then incite hate for Trump AND his supporters, with nary a mention of the violence that BLM & Antifa bring to the table. GTFO. https://t.co/I5ElfSsTtZ
