Physical violence at rallies for presidential contender Donald Trump have become a troubling trend — and perhaps it persists because the GOP front runner does nothing to stop it from happening.

This was reinforced Friday when Trump insinuated he even enjoys it. According to CBS New York, Trump told an audience in Michigan that a melee between a protester and rally-goers in New Hampshire was “really amazing to watch.”

Trump, who is currently the controversial front runner, told his audience he was tired of “political correctness” when it came to handling frequent protests at his campaign events. When interrupted by another protester, he again seemed to encourage violence.

“Get him out,” Trump said according to CBS. “Try not to hurt him. If you do I’ll defend you in court.”

Then he said, “Are Trump rallies the most fun? We’re having a good time.”

Trump said a protester started “swinging and punching” when rally-goers “took him out.”

“It was really amazing to watch,” he said.

Trump was recently criticized for an incident this week in which a young African-American woman was roughly shoved, screamed at and called names by Trump supporters, including members of a white nationalist group.

Two other women also said they were attacked by Trump supporters at the rally. Police are investigating several instances of violence.

Fox News contributor Richard Fowler shut down conservative pundit Rachel Campos-Duffy on Tuesday after she said that Americans are "not impressed" by the diversity in President-elect Joe Biden's incoming administration.

"You can have a problem with the ideology of many of these individuals that Joe Biden has selected," Fowler explained during a segment on Fox News. "But you cannot question their qualifications and their abilities to do this job."

"Let's just think about this for a minute," he continued. "No matter what party you're in, you have to acknowledge that the Biden campaign and the Biden transition team is really looking forward facing. For the first time in American history, we'll have a woman vice president, we'll have a woman running national intelligence, we'll have an African-American woman at the U.N., we'll have a Latino man running Homeland Security. This is what America looks like."

Watergate lawyer explains why Biden has no choice but to prosecute Trump

Published

The last thing that President-elect Joe Biden wants to do is be inundated by crimes committed by the previous administration. Biden is a "worker," looking forward toward a future that repairs relationships with the international community, fixes regulations, revives government agencies and, hopefully, bring public servants back to fill positions. There's just one problem, however, Donald Trump.

Writing in the Washington Post on Tuesday, Philip Allen Lacovara, a former counselor to the Watergate special prosecutor, explained that Biden may not have any options. It's a sentiment, Andrew Weissmann, former senior attorney to special counsel Robert Mueller, agrees must happen.
