Donald Trump on violence

If you beat up a protester at Trump’s rally, he’ll cover your legal fees.After receiving a notice from his security that someone might be planning to throw tomatoes at him (again), Trump told his supporters to “knock the crap out of them … I promise you, I will pay for the legal fees.” The crowd vociferously cheered him on.

===================================================================

During a Friday news conference, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump characterized protesters getting punched at his events as “very, very appropriate” because “these are people that punch, there are people that are violent people.” His comments came two days after Rakeem Jones was sucker-punched at a Trump rally in North Carolina by a man who was later charged with assault.

=============================================================

Two black men have filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump's campaign and an affiliated venue after they were allegedly beaten up at his rally.
The lawsuit comes the same week that the Republican nominee accused Hillary Clinton of paying people to protest at his events.
Last November in Birmingham, Alabama, Mr Trump saw the protester and said to the crowd: “Get him the hell out of here, will you please?”

=================================

Donnie is a real tough guy when he is standing at a podium, or hiding behind his bodyguards, but he has been inciting people to behave violently ever since he started his campaign. So when white nationalists have a rally, why be surprised when it turns violent?

The tweeter in chief has been playing on fear and encouraging violence the whole time.

7. Failed righty response.

But you really can't defend this so its better for Fred to ignore it and hope no one reads it.
====================
Spoiler alert Fred:

most people already know this about Trump. One reason he lost the popular vote and needed Russian interference and voter suppression.

13. So you are

equating punching someone who is being annoying with running over otherwise uninvolved people in a car? Really?

Now I'll give you the fact that Trump should have been smarter than to say that, but even in what he said he implies responsibility for actions. His promise was to pay for their defense. AND he was called out by his own side for his statement which negates your original premise.
