Republican National Committee Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel said on Sunday that President Donald Trump had “strengthened” the GOP by after pro-Trump conservatives launched an attack on her uncle, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).

During an interview on CBS, host Margaret Brennan noted that Trump allies had run attack advertisements against the Utah senator because he voted to allow witnesses in the president’s impeachment trial.

“The Conservative Political Action Conference has disinvited [Mitt Romney] from an upcoming meeting,” Brennan explained. “They put this ad online, there are TV ads against him. Do you think this is proper political retaliation?”

“The president has strengthened our party,” McDaniel insisted.

“I’m not sure if you saw the ad but it was you uncle’s face,” Brennan observed.

“I haven’t seen the ad,” McDaniel admitted. “That’s the grassroots part of our party and their upset when people aren’t supporting the president and are not supporting our party. They think if you aren’t supporting him, you are helping a Democrat get elected.”

“Okay,” Brennan said. “I understand you don’t want to comment on your uncle.”

In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.

According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.

"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."
