What began as a protest following the shooting death of Keith Scott on Wednesday night degenerated into chaos in Charlotte, as several clips captured clashes between police and demonstrators — which at one point involved a CNN reporter.

CNN’s Ed Lavandera was reporting live from the scene on Anderson Cooper 360 when he was bodychecked to the ground by an unidentified man, who quickly walked away from the scene.

George Conway declares ‘Trump is a racist president’ in brutal Washington Post column

Prominent Republican attorney George Conway blasted President Donald Trump in an op-ed published by The Washington Post on Monday evening.

Conway explained how he avoided thinking of Trump as a racist, despite the president's actions.

"No, I thought, President Trump was boorish, dim-witted, inarticulate, incoherent, narcissistic and insensitive.

No matter how much I came to dislike him, I didn’t want to think that the president of the United States is a racial bigot," he explained.

In 1977, Trump became the second husband of Ivana Zelní?ková -- who was born in Czechoslovakia. She is the mother of Donald Trump, Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump.

Racism drives Trump ‘like rocket fuel’ — but even for him, this is ‘shocking and disgraceful’: WaPo journalist

On Monday's edition of CNN's "The Situation Room," Washington Post reporter David Swerdlick told anchor Wolf Blitzer that there's nothing truly new about President Donald Trump's racist social media assaults on Democratic congresswomen of color — but that there is something uniquely horrible about the latest episode.

"People are suggesting what the president has said in the past day or two represents a new low," said Blitzer. "But when you look at the president's history ... the president claiming Barack Obama wasn't born here in the United States, his comments about Charlottesville. This clearly isn't a one-off."
