On Monday evening, presidential candidate Donald Trump held yet another rally, this time in Vegas, where protesters were assaulted as the rabid crowd shouted for blood.

“Light that motherf*cker on fire!” shouted a voice in the crowd as a mob of security guards attempted to forcibly remove a Black Lives Matter activist.

Trump’s response to this violence? He joked that he planted the protesters in the audience in order to get the media to cover his crowd size.

Trump also rebuked reporters attending the rally for taking pictures and video of the violent removal of protesters, urging his audience to boo the members of the press for simply doing their job.

Clearly, Trump is in support of violence against opposition, and he wants to keep it quiet.
