During an impromptu appearance on the Alex Jones Show, Drudge also called on Hillary Clinton to relinquish her armed bodyguards.
“They’re all armed themselves, or they all have that security around them themselves. They don’t have to worry about [danger.] I challenge Hillary, take away your Secret Service. Take it away now. Take away your Secret Service; dismiss them. Have no security around you; have no guns around you, Hillary. I dare you. I dare you,” said Drudge.
“Obama, same thing. Drop your guns, Obama. Take your Secret Service away, Obama. Take it all away. Leave the White House unguarded, Obama. Let everybody know there’s no guns on the White House grounds, Obama.”
Drudge said that if either Hillary or Obama did this, within 30 seconds they would “no longer be on planet Earth.”
“So they’re asking us to drop our guns and to drop our security measures, or–or what?” said Drudge, adding that only “sick Americans” would support a move for widespread gun control.
“You can’t underestimate the sickness of the American people right now. They’re really sick. I’m more angry at the sick Americans than I am at Obama or Hillary. I’m really angry at the sick Americans,” said Drudge.
Earlier this week, the White House confirmed that Obama was preparing a series of new executive orders on gun control in the aftermath of last week’s shooting at the Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon.
Residents of Roseburg responded by accusing the President of political grandstanding and vowing to protest his planned visit. A Facebook page set up to protest against the visit features an image of a doormat which reads “Not Welcome”.
