People who don’t like Donald Trump have seized on a recent comment he made about possible unrest at the Republican National Convention if he is denied the nomination despite being the leading candidate.

A New Media Motif: Vote Obama & Avoid Race Riots
The Hill.com introduced what could become a key media motif in the week before the election: If you vote against Obama, you could cause a riot.
At least in modern American history, this will be the first of its brand of political extortion perpetrated by the old liberal media, not just against voters, but against the African-American communities in cities across the country.
The article on TheHill.com, written by Alexander Bolton, states that,

That doesn’t count though.
Everything is different when Democrats do it.
