During another one of the president’s endless rallies in El Paso, Texas, on Monday, a supporter of the President Trump took the media-hater-in-chief’s consistent and frequent statements against the press literally and reportedly shoved a BBC cameraman before being taken away by security.

The deplorable allegedly shouted “fuck the media” before issuing a series of very hard shoves to a cameraman who was trying to figure out why he was being attacked for doing his job.

Ron Skeans told the BBC that he was blindsided by a “very hard shove.”

“I didn’t know what was going on,” he added.

Skeans said the man was wearing an updated Klan hood a “Make America Great Again” hat, which has replaced the Von Dutch hat as the official hat of the douchebag, and added that the ingrate tried to knock him down twice before security took the man away.

The crowd began yelling “Let him go. Let him go” as the man was being taken away.

Trump addressed the incident, which interrupted his speech.

“You all right? Everything OK?” said Trump, who has called the media the “enemy of the people.” He also gave the thumbs up sign, which was either to tell the media that they were ok, or the sign that kings give at the end of gladiator fights to say that they will spare the fallen fighter’s life.

“Look at all the press,” he said as the crowd roared “boo,” The New York Post reports.

Skeans’ colleague Gary O’Donoghue said Monday night that this wasn’t the first time the press has been singled out or attacked during a Trump rally.

“This is a constant feature of these rallies—a goading of the crowds against the media,” he said, The Post reports. “I have been spat at before, they hurl abuse at American colleagues in particular.”

We’ve seen this man say there were fine people on both sides as he defended Nazi’s in August of 2017. We’ve seen this pitiful sack of shit defend dictators. We’ve seen him give no shit about the death Jamal Khashoggi, so you think he and his demented cult see this as a problem? For real the similarities between his rallies and Hitler’s are striking but not too worry CNN & MSNBC learned their lessons from 2016 right? Fuck it Fox News is Pravda in their devotion to this slug. CNN & others have been targeted by this man’s demented followers thanks to his ravings and soon a tragedy will occur that he will be unable to ignore the blood on his hands. The main thing is he will not give a shit but will anyone in that fucking party do something about it? Rhetorical question I know.
