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.”
