Think About What They Did To Those Kennedys, And Then Think About What They Might Try To Pull On You and Me
On May 25th, 2008, Trotta made news after expressing a desire on Fox News that U.S. presidential candidate Barack Obama be assassinated in the run up to the 2008 United States presidential election. Prior to calling for his assassination she referred to Barack Obama as "Osama". Her co-anchor then made a remark about how that was her opinion and that she preferred Hillary Clinton or John McCain.
In reference to Hillary Rodham Clinton's controversial reference to Robert F. Kennedy's June, 1968, assassination in a discussion of the ongoing 2008 Democratic primaries, she stated,
"[...] and now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama. Um, uh, Obama. Well them both, if we could."
Trotta briefly laughed after her remarks.
