On Sunday, Donald Trump told NBC’s Meet The Press that he may pay the legal fees of 78-year-old John McGraw, who was charged with assault after punching protestor Rakeem Barnes in the face at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Although Trump believes that McGraw is a man that “obviously loves this country,” he made sure to not confirm that he would definently support McGraw.
That’s because he had not seen the video of the altercation.
“I’ve actually instructed my people to look at it.” Trump told Chuck Todd in reference to the altercation.
Not viewing recorded instances of violence has led the GOP Frontrunner to believe that nobody has been injured at any of his campaign rallies.
So I think it is safe to assume Trump hasn’t seen this:
By not seeing (or ignoring) the acts of violence at his campaign rallies, Trump is able to continue his stance on building walls, and promoting his steak/bottled water businesses without addressing the dangerous conditions at his own events.
The tactic of avoidance has also been used by Hilary Clinton:
The picture above is Hillary Clinton speaking at Dartmouth College in December 1993. Behind her is none other that Bernie Sanders.
So, no wonder Clinton didn’t know Sanders was there! It all makes sense now!!
Wait, never mind.
The irony of this article is that Clinton nor Trump will probably never see this article.
