Before Donald Trump took the stage in Las Vegas on Sunday, conservative commentator Wayne Allyn Root warmed up the audience by imagining Hillary Clinton’s imminent death. “It’s Hillary in a White Ford Bronco,” he said. “She’s got Huma driving, and they’re headed for the Mexican border … when they make the run for the border of Mexico, there’s nowhere to go, because President Trump has built a big, beautiful wall.”

He went on, “We all get our wish. The ending is like Thelma & Louise.” (At the end of the famous 1991 movie, Thelma and Louise drive off a cliff to their fiery deaths.) According to Politico, Root’s remarks “drew cheers from rally attendees.”

This isn’t the first time a Trump surrogate has called for his political opponent to be killed; in July, Trump delegate and New Hampshire state representative Al Baldasaro said in a radio interview that Clinton “should be put on the firing line and shot for treason.”

Like many of Trump’s surrogates, Root has a history of controversial remarks, the most recent being that Donald Trump is far too handsome to grope women.
