So unless you’re living on a desert island, or otherwise holed up in a home that has no electricity, no television, no radio and no newspaper delivery, then you’re probably aware of the recent Secret Service rushing of Donald Trump from a stage in Reno, Nevada.
It happened Saturday, after Trump supporters attending the candidate’s rally pointed to a man in the audience and shouted “gun.” Secret Service later said they didn’t find a gun; others at the scene said someone had found a gun, the Huffington Post reported.
In the meanwhile, Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, offered up an idea of why the guy—who reportedly heckled and protested the candidate’s speech and then became embroiled in disputes with others at the scene—was in the audience in the first place.
“This guy was a Democrat, probably a plant,” Conway said, during a Fox News interview a day after the incident took place.
The protester, Austyn Crites, however, insists he’s a Republican.
In an interview with the Guardian, Crites said he was holding a sign that said “Republicans Against Trump” and for that, was tackled to the ground, punched and kicked.
Perhaps what’s even more interesting is the news outlet reporting the story, the Huffington Post, still runs its anti-Trump tag at the end of all stories relating to the candidate – the same one it regularly ran during the primary season on all news related to Trump.
The tack-on reads: “Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims – 1.6 billion members of an entire religion – from entering the U.S.”
Note to Huffington Post: Biased, much?
