Trump on protester: ‘Maybe he should have been roughed up’

by Jeremy Diamond  |  published on November 23, 2015

Donald Trump suggested Sunday the half-dozen white attendees at his campaign rally on Saturday may have reacted appropriately when they shoved, tackled, punched and kicked a black protester who disrupted his speech.

“Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing,” Trump said Sunday morning on Fox News, less than 24 hours after his campaign said it “does not condone” the physical altercation.

Trump was not asked by the Fox News hosts about the comments made by his campaign.

    So I’m just curious. What if the heckler had had a gun? And a concealed carry permit? He gets punches thrown at him, and he “stands his ground” and starts shooting, because, you know, he feels threatened. What then?

      I’m thinking he would have been shot as soon as he pulled out his firearm and then it would have much been easier to drag him out of the auditorium.

        Sounds like a controversy

    I’m tired of those BLM BULLIES they’re selfish, self centered, HYPOCRITES & INGRATES they should spend more time protesting their own black on black violece and stop blaming everybody else for everything that’s wrong in their misserable lives if they’re able to march around with signs and be disruptive then they’re able to use their Affirmative Action and work a real job and improve their lives! Wonder how many are receiving benefits Food stamps, disability, unemployment and sec 8?
    I wonder how they would like it if the roles were reversed and we all went and disrupted a Hillary rally with signs saying ALL LIVES MATTER. Maybe then they’ll understand that its a two way street and that Democrats don’t get to have both lanes!
    TRUMP/CRUZ 2016

    Good for those Trump Supporters for kicking that Black LIES Matter fecal maggot’s butt! They could care less about Black Lives, they don’t open their mouths about the mass Black on Black murder going on, only if it is a Black shot by a White! BLM is nothing but ghetto sewer scum! TRUMP/CRUZ 2016!

    I watched every video I could find of this incident. CNN, et al, conveniently “missed” the BLACK guy in the light grey suit who was seen from almost every angle and seemed to be herding the thug toward the exit. I figured he was part of the security team. Also, the man was not “knocked to the ground”, he ended up on the ground because he was resisting security’s attempts to remove him. This guy was over 6 foot and 300+ pounds of belligerence. I am amazed they got him out as “easily” as they did. As to “attendees” punching and kicking him when he was on the ground, I could not find any evidence of that either.
    Can anyone provide the links to what I must have missed?

      Trump is no Bernie Sanders and that is a good thing. This person was nothing but a heckler and it was the Speaker who pays for the Microphone. We are all sick of hearing about this ” Black Lives Matter “. It would be different if they had some merit to their protest, but they do not and will not listen when other people say, ” All lives matter, especially our Police”.
