NBC News: A Donald Trump supporter who allegedly assaulted young woman during a campaign rally last year is claiming the president is to blame in his response to a lawsuit against him.

Alvin Bamberger, 75, who is accused of shoving protester Kashiya Nwanguma at a Louisville, Kentucky, rally on March 1, 2016, alleges in a cross claim filed Friday that he would not have touched the woman had then-candidate Trump not urged his supporters to remove protesters from the venue. "Bamberger had no prior intention to act as he did," reads the response to the suit filed in U.S. District Court for Western Kentucky. "Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump Campaign's specific urging and inspiration."

Three protesters at the event — Nwanguma, Molly Shah and Henry Brousseau — alleged in the original suit against Trump, Bamberger and another man that audience members pushed and shoved them after being incited by Trump.

Was Trump talking to Bamberger or to security?

If you watched the Trump rallies during the campaign, he frequently egged on his supporters, telling them to punch people out, knock the crap out of them, etc. and even offered to pay their legal fees

He said those words. Who was he talking to? It will be interesting to see the outcome on this.

The tapes of the rallies are going to be the key. I'm sure you can find them online

I was watching it the first time, and a few times after. Being motivated by somebody else's words does not make him innocent. Trump might be guilty of inciting the action, yes.

He is still responsible for his actions, but so is the person inciting violence and vowing to pay the legal bills. The crowd mentality can be very powerful.

That may very well be the outcome.
