Conservative commentator Wayne Allyn Root took the stage during a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas, where he crafted a theatrical fantasy about the death of Hillary Clinton and her senior aide.
"Jackhammers and blowtorches are headed for Washington DC," he said in a speech directed at the Democratic nominee for president. "You hear us. And we are coming to put you in prison."
Root continued to outline a scenario in which Hillary flees to Mexico from an uprising populace, only to be stopped at the border by a wall built by Trump. He ended his fantasy with the death of Clinton.
"We all get our wish," he said. "The ending is like Thelma and Louise." The titular characters of the film perish by driving over a cliff.
