Yesterday Donald Trump made a statement which some people feel was a call to incite acts of violence against Hillary Clinton. He made a similar comment last month.
Beginning at 0:34 in the above video, Trump continues, "I think what we should do, is she goes around with armed body guards like you have never seen before. I think that her body guards - should drop all weapons. They should disarm, right? Right? I think they should disarm - immediately, what do think? Yes? Yeah. Yeah. Take their guns away. She doesn't want guns, take their - let's see what happens to her. Take their guns away, okay. It'd be very dangerous."
During 0:50 as he says, ".... Right? I think they should disarm ...", Mr. Trump displays a classic microexpression of contempt. This image is isolated below.
The display of contempt or disgust during verbal threats or insinuation of physical violence carries with it significant emotion. Such a nonverbal signal is a red flag and should be taken seriously.
