Donald Trump has topped himself again by stating he has instructed his people to look into the legal situation of the man who punched a protester in the face at a rally in North Carolina on March 9.
As we reported, Rakeem Jones, a Trump rally protester, was punched in the face by 78-year-old John McGraw when Rakeem was being escorted out of the venue by authorities and flipping the crowd off at the same time.
Like the ignorant parent of the mischievous kid who they think can do no wrong, the 69-year-old defended his supporters by placing the blame on the protesters and absolutely ZERO fault on his own followers.
Well after defending violence once again on Saturday, Donald went on Meet the Press on Sunday and told Chuck Todd that he’s “going to take a look at” McGraw’s legal situation and possibly pay for his legal fees!
The businessman dished:
“I will say this. I do want to see what that young man was doing. Because he was very taunting. He was very loud, very disruptive. And from what I understand, he was sticking a certain finger up in the air. And that is a terrible thing to do in front of somebody that frankly wants to see America made great again.”
Oh really? So “sticking a certain finger up in the air” is NOT okay, but the GOP hopeful still constantly talks about how people should stop being “politically correct” WHENEVER anyone attacks him for cussing or making obscene gestures. We guess that defense is only valid when it works for the former reality star.
And if flipping the bird is such a “terrible thing to do”, what would he say about swearing in front of thousands of people and promoting violent behavior? See the evidence (below).
But don’t get Donald wrong, he doesn’t condone violence at all. LOLz.
He even told McGraw:
“I do not condone violence in any shape. As far as my previous statement, we had somebody that was punching and vicious and gone crazy, a disrupter, they’re not protesters. I’m telling you, they’re disrupters, they’re professionals.”
Oh, and just incase you forgot, the Trump-ster has in no way forgotten how to toot his own horn as he made sure to bring attention to how “great” he was for canceling the Chicago rally. He noted:
“We haven’t had a real injury or anything. And then Chicago I canceled, and I did a great thing by canceling it, because who needs the problems, who needs people getting hurt? I didn’t want that.”
If for some reason you need to see the whole interview for yourself to believe it, you can ch-ch-check it out (below).
