Make America Great Again!

Inquiring minds inquire: How exactly does one "Make America Great Again!"? One might start by Second Amendment-remedying these two rat bastards at their upcoming joint fright-fest/campaign event.
Douche-y & Douche-ier. Or is that backwards?
When it was announced that 2016 Republican presidential hopefuls Ted Cruz and Donald Trump would be teaming up next month to host a joint rally opposing the Iran nuclear deal, it seemed things couldn’t get more outlandish. Until it was revealed that the Center for Security Policy would be sponsoring it.
Or, I could use my anticipated birthday flamethrower!

In all seriousness [TAKE BEAT (OR TWO) FOR LAFFS] this won't be an American election to remember until some citizen (Or not, it's still a free country, damnit!) has taken a could've-hit-him shot at one of the candidates, Sara Jane Moore-style:
She was using a gun she bought in haste that same morning and did not know the sights were six inches off the point-of-impact at that distance (about 40 feet away) and she narrowly missed.
'Though I'll settle for Squeaky-style theater, even.
Although Fromme stood a little more than an arm's length from Ford that Friday morning and pointed an M1911 pistol at him in the public grounds of the California State Capitol building, her gun failed to fire and no one was injured.
Hell of a September for Calif. & Pres. Ford forty yrs. ago.

The sights were off fifteen centimeters at a dozen meters? Is that even possible? And why would it matter - at 12 meters you're aiming with instinct more than open sights, planting the front sight on the target and aligning the axis of the gun to that point of aim.

I think maybe she just wasn't very coordinated, and history is trying to give her a pass...

Assassination Editor:
All Wiki-yada quotes; who knows? Something somewhat sourced:
U.S. District Judge Samuel Conti, still on the bench in 2010, spoke on the record that Moore would have killed President Ford had she had her own gun, and it was only "because her gun was faulty" that the President's life was spared.[12] Google Books if you want to look for the judge's quote. (No, probably not; most people have jobs.)

Then the gay ex-Marine deflected her next shot.

I wonder if a third try would've been the charm? Imagine Pres. Rockefeller vs. Dem. ??? in 1976.

Gaffney once asked, “What if it turns out that some of the people the Obama administration has been embracing are actually promoting the same totalitarian ideology and seditious agenda as al Qaeda, only they’re doing it from White House Iftar dinners?”

In the words of a certain confectioner we all know, "What if my beard were made of green spinach?"
