    Can Anyone Find Evidence Of This?

    I read this report in two places, HuffPost (gag!) and The Independent. Neither provided any video evidence of their claim, which is that Trump had "peaceful protesters" cleared out of his path with tear gas, so he could do a photo op at a church. I looked on YouTube and also found no evidence there. If true, it is despicable. But because HuffPost is on par with CNN for fake news, I don't believe it without proof.

    Anyone?

    Probably referring to this story:

    I don't know what happened. I'm hearing some reports that the protestors were ordered multiple times to disperse and ignored repeated warnings that force would be used if they refused.

    The problem I am having with this, is that a "peaceful" protest usually comes with permission or a permit from some local jurisdiction. Was this over-ridden by Trump just so he could get a good campaign photo?

    And even if no permit was given, if they weren't breaking any laws or local ordinances, then they were within their right to peacefully protest.

    Again, not good. Trump had better learn the difference between protesters and rioters.

    I doubt Trump personally ordered it. This would have been coordinated by the secret service.

    According to here this was arranged absolutely last minute without adequate time for the SS to prepare.

    Trump wanted a photo op. So he had innocent, peaceful protesters gassed to make it possible to get the photo op.

    If you think that is going to do anything but make this all much, much, worse, I have beachfront in Arizona I'd like to sell you.

    Donald Trump is the single worst possible person we could have as President at this moment in history.
    He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."

    Here is an account from one of the clergy attached to the church.

    (from the subsequent tweet to the one I linked)


    Just spoke with Rev. Gerbasi.

    She told me that law enforcement with shields forced priests, others *off the church patio,* meaning they stepped on church property to expel people from it.


    Hard to comprehend this as anything more than a hasty action to take the focus off of Biden's church visit earlier today. What a disaster.

    Those two ideas aren't mutually exclusive; he could have ordered it AND coordinated it with the secret service.
