Was This a Setup? Unhinged Man in Trump MAGA Hat Attacks Media at El Paso Rally — More: Tag Was Still on His Hat (VIDEO)
Monday night at the Trump border rally in El Paso, Texas an unhinged man in a Trump MAGA hat rushed the media platform.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The unidentified man ran down a set of stairs in the press section in the El Paso County Coliseum and jumped onto a platform where cameras were recording Trump’s speech.
The man shoved a handful of cameras, causing them to topple, and pushed reporters, knocking some of them over the roughly two-foot-high ledge.
One reporter yelled, “Get the police, get the police.” Police were standing about 20 feet away near attendees in other sections. A police officer ran into the chaos after reporters had gotten a hold of the intruder, who yelled, “Fuck you. Fuck the media.”
The man was kicked out of the venue, according to a Trump campaign official.
Here is the video of the incident.

Has the violent “Trump supporter” been identified?
Are we supposed to believe he was a Trump supporter?
In 2016 the left was notorious for sending in goons to Trump rallies to beat heads. They even had a name for it — bird-dogging.
James O’Keefe revealed this tactic in an undercover investigation.
Is it fair to ask for more information on this man before we conclude that he is a Trump supporter?
Can we at least ask for the name of the violent protester?
