T-rump supporter violently attacks cameraman at El Paso rally


Ron Skeanes, a BBC cameraman who was covering the T-rump rally last night in El Paso with reporter Gary O’Donoghue, was violently attacked by an unidentified T-rump supporter.

O'Donoghue was one of many witnesses who saw the man in his red MAGA hat 'storm the press platform' and attack Skeanes in which O'Donoghue described as a 'violent attack'. O'Donoghue reports the man 'twice' tried to knock down the cameraman and the equipment, shouting "“fuck the media” as security escorted him away. O’Donoghue also live-tweeted the attack as it unfolded.


O’Donoghue shared footage of the “shameful moment” on social media. He told BBC viewers that the “goading of the crowds against the media” is “a constant feature” of Trump’s rallies. “It is clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job.”

That's Trump's knuckle draggers for you: all bone and no brain.

Those Trump rallies are scary--they look JUST like NAZI rallies from old 30's footage.

It's actually quite amazing to watch them. So much hatred intermingled with fear. They really will hold onto Trump no matter WHAT ever comes out about him from the investigations. No matter WHAT.

It's just odd. You'd think that, throughout human history, people would learn. This is almost exactly like Adolf Hitler all over again and, just like the NAZIs, Donald has his cult firmly attached to him through thick and thin.

Sadly, I saw all of these excuses (and more) on Yahoo News Comments today.

Someone even said: "You only see them holding the guy back! Not the attack!"

The guy had to be HELD BACK...doesn't that at the VERY least confirm the man was at least intending to be violent?

"The guy had to be HELD BACK...doesn't that at the VERY least confirm the man was at least intending to be violent?"

In T-rumpworld, the answer is a solid "NO". They could have been holding him back from the cameraman, who initiated the attack, you know! You can't prove otherwise, despite the footage and eyewitness accounts.

Poor lone wolf. He as just asking for a Tylenol he can't afford under Obamacare, to relieve his headache. And he got attacked.

Trump excels by stirring up anger and aggression among his followers. Pure negativity. That's how he scares people into voting for him.

And he does it in the simplest way possible:

-Loudly yells the words they want to hear

-Feeds into their fears, prejudices and paranoia

-Says: "I'm one of you"


It's really that simple. Trump supporters generally seem to consist of people who feel "forgotten" in today's modern society. They haven't assimilated to the many changes the world is undergoing culturally, despise PC and feel their race will eventually be bred out by an increased amount of interracial relationships in our country. Just look at his crowds--mostly white, mostly over 40, mostly deep south podunk-looking...it speaks for itself, really.

I agree that PC is going too far in our country but using Donald Trump to go after it is like going after a hornet's nest with a bazooka.

Ruling by fear and hatred--it's the oldest convention of corrupt leadership in human history and still draws the masses in to this day no matter how civilized or uncivilized a country is.

I'm surprised we don't already have one of the shameless sock-trolls here claiming this guy was a "liberal plant."

Now taking bets on how long it will be before one posts that.

We got #2 ("lone wolf theory") and I got BINGO!

He might be unstable, but it's Trumps angry rhetoric that set him off.

reply

Obama's eloquent rhetoric set off the riots in Ferguson ...what's your point?

reply

If it was someone pushing Sean Hannity, you'd be yelling about Antifa, so just shut up.

That was an Antifa thug who drove the car into the crowd and killed an innocent person? WOW. Never knew that. You've been keeping this a secret all this time?

reply

I knew youd throw that out there....so predictable.

Antifa thugs started it all; they could’ve just stayed home. No riots or conflict would’ve occurred. Instead they chose to go there and escalate it to a violent level. Its what they do.

Ok. Thanks for putting everything in perspective for us.

You're welcome

...and you know it's the truth; CNN and the rest of the leftstream media don't care about that, they only focus is spinning their #fakenews into anti-Trump talking points.

reply

Oh, yes - we know everything you post is the truth! Nothing but the truth!

I ask you, 'Why would anyone ever doubt you, or FOX NEWS, or T-rump? '

I won't stand for a word said against you, so please, go on...

reply

So basically you're saying people shouldn't protest and exercise their right to free speech?

'Merica the great! 'Merica the free!
