Trump sends Sarah Sanders out to denounce BBC cameraman beating: ‘President Trump condemns all acts of violence’

Published

on

A BBC cameraman was attacked in El Paso, Texas Monday night, but the president is absolving himself of any responsibility.

“President Trump condemns all acts of violence against any individual or group of people – including members of the press. We ask that anyone attending an event do so in a peaceful and respectful manner,” Sanders said in a release Tuesday.

A man with a Make America Great Again hat “shoved and swore at the BBC’s Ron Skeans and other news crews before being pulled away” by police, the BBC reported.

Skeans explained that a “very hard shove” came out of nowhere. “I didn’t know what was going on.”

Trump told his Texas audience that the press was dishonest liars. In the past, he’s called them the “enemy of the people.”

“I heard the same thing from the fake news,” Trump said about crime statistics for the city. “They said, ‘Oh, crime actually stayed the same.’ It didn’t stay the same. It went way down. And look at what they did to their past crimes, and look at how they recorded those past crimes. It went way, way down.”

“These people — you know, you’d think they’d want to get to the bottom of a problem, and solve a problem, not try and pull the wool over everybody’s eyes,” he continued. “So for those few people that are out there on television saying, “Oh, it didn’t make too much of a difference” — it made a tremendous— people from El Paso, am I right? It’s fake news. I’m telling ya, it’s just fake news. And you know what? You wouldn’t even have to know, you can say that automatically without even knowing. It’s obvious, it’s common sense.”

President Donald Trump claimed to be the victim of "violence" during his official campaign kickoff in Orlando, Florida.

"Many times I said we would drain the swamp and that’s exactly what we are doing right now. We are draining the swamp," Trump claimed, despite having the most scandal-plagued administration in American history.

"And that is why the swamp is fighting back so viciously and violently," Trump argued.

"For the last two and a half years we have been under siege and with the Mueller report we want and now they want a do-over. They want a do-over," he repeated.

Published

Outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was blasted by a White House correspondent for her brazen lying from the White House podium.

"Sarah Sanders is a true believer. Conditioned by an upbringing rooted in Christian rhetoric that's impervious to reason, she views the world through a lens in which everything exists in absolutes," Playboy magazine White House correspondent Brian Karem wrote.

Her father, Mike Huckabee, is an Evangelical pastor who served as the Republican governor of Arkansas prior to unsuccessful presidential bids.
