‘Maybe He Should Have Been Roughed Up’
Those are the words of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump:
After his supporters beat up a Black Lives Matter protester on video, Donald Trump suggested that they may have done the right thing.
The protester, a black man, reportedly started chanting Black Lives Matter at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama on Saturday. In a video captured by CNN reporter Jeremy Diamond, rally attendees swarm around the man, kicking and punching him as he curls up on the ground.
Trump was asked to weigh in on his supporters’ actions on Fox & Friends Sunday morning. “Maybe he should have been roughed up,” he said. “It was disgusting what he was doing.”
Because freedom of speech is just so icky and is aleways best solved with brownshirt solutions.
Classy, Donald, huuuuugely classy.
