At this point, I just sort of wish that all media outlets would agree to stop covering Donald Trump’s sad Nazi rallies. I understand why those rallies are “newsworthy” and I get that journalists are just doing their jobs. But the world would be a much better place if no one from the media even covered those struggling Nazi setpieces. Anyway, because Donald Trump is a sad fat man, he threw himself a sad Nazi rally in El Paso, Texas last night. He spent an hour insulting and smearing immigrants and the children of immigrants and glorifying white people. He also incited violence, and his supporters took him up on it right then and there. A MAGA-hat-wearing a–hole physically assaulted a BBC cameraman:
A supporter of US President Donald Trump has attacked a BBC cameraman at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas. Sporting a Make America Great Again cap, the man shoved and swore at the BBC’s Ron Skeans and other news crews before being pulled away.
Mr Skeans said the “very hard shove” came from his blindside. “I didn’t know what was going on.” Mr Trump saw the attack and confirmed Mr Skeans was well with a thumbs up after it happened.
Mr Skeans said the man almost knocked him and his camera over twice before he was wrestled away by a blogger. President Trump checked they were well with a thumbs up, and continued his speech after Mr Skeans returned the gesture.
I would argue that Trump probably did the thumbs-up to the Deplorable who physically attacked Ron Skeans, but what do I know. Here’s the video:

I mean… how many times does this have to happen? Donald Trump is inciting violence and terrorism. He’s inciting violence and terrorism against journalists, black people, brown people and immigrants. He should be regarded that way – as an inciter of violence and terrorism.
