A Trump supporter at the rally sent The Gateway Pundit this first hand account of the incident.
No one kicked him or called him racial names. He laid in the floor refusing to get up & leave. Every time they got him on his feet he would try to lay down again. When they did finally get him on his feet & headed towards the door he tried to run back into the crowd shouting & screaming Black Lives Matter garbage. Finally when they were escorting him out of the crowd & towards the door is when he pulled up his outer garment revealing his BLM shirt.
A member of Black Lives Matter came looking for trouble & found it!
This morning on FOX and Friends Donald Trump said maybe the protester should have been roughed up.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Fox News on Sunday morning that a Black Lives Matter protester thrown out of his Birmingham rally perhaps deserved to be “roughed up” for being “obnoxious.”
In response to being asked about the protester being “roughed up,” Trump said: “I don’t know. Rough up? Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”
“The man that was — I don’t know, you say ‘roughed up’ — he was so obnoxious and so loud. He was screaming. I had 10,000 people in the room yesterday — 10,000 people. And this guy started screaming by himself,” Trump continued.
“I have lot of fans and they were not happy about it. And this was a very obnoxious guy, who was a troublemaker who was looking to make trouble,” he said.
Mercutio Southall Jr., a well-known Birmingham activist, heckled Trump during the rally. He said he was punched and then pushed down by attendees.
