Eleanor Montague, the BBC's Washington News Editor, said in a tweet that the El Paso crowd had been "whipped up into a frenzy against the media by Trump and other speakers all night."

If that incident was captured on camera at all, the trumpie should be arrested and charged with assault and battery.

Trump's whole attitude of attacking the media is straight dictatorship, calling them "enemy of the people" is out of line. He should be held responsible for any and all violent acts against media personnel by his supporters. Isn't that the GOP mantra, accountability? Trump and GOP hypocrites, damn 'em all.

It was indeed captured on video -- by the man who was attacked. The Trumper is heard screaming "Fuck the media!"

It's only a matter of time until a real tragedy occurs.  How will those MAGA morons react when Trump is threatened by impeachment?

I think Trump wants that as some sort of protection for himself -- the threat of civil violence if he's actually held to account for his crimes.
