Trump Wanted Guard to Rough Up Protester

Trump Wanted Guard to Rough Up Protester December 12, 2019

Trump flashed his fascist side at a campaign rally, and certainly not for the first time, by slamming a security guard for merely escorting a protester out of the arena rather than roughing her up a bit in the process. He said the guard was being “politically correct,” a phrase the right uses as a catch-all term when people aren’t being intolerant enough.

Here’s video of it:

This is part of a long pattern:

Trump’s call to not be “politically correct” harkens back to other incidents at his events.

During a rally in 2016, he promised to pay the legal fees of anyone who attacks a protester.

“If you see somebody getting ready to throw a tomato, knock the crap out of them, would you?” he said. “Seriously, OK?”

During another event, Trump complained that a protester was receiving high-fives as he left.

“I’d like to punch him in the face, I’ll tell you that,” he said.

And during a winter event in 2016, Trump told security to take the protesters’ coats.

“Throw them out into the cold,” he said. “Don’t give them their coats. No coats! Confiscate their coats.”

Just more of Trump’s fascist tendencies.
