(Republicans against Trump) attacked, beaten and accused of having a gun -that led to the Secret Service taking the Con off stage.

The man whose protest saw Donald Trump rushed off the stage by Secret Service agents has said the Republican nominee’s supporters turned on him when he held up a sign reading: “Republicans against Trump”.

The man, who identified himself as Austyn Crites from Reno, told the Guardian he was holding the sign at a rally when Trump supporters wrestled him to the ground.

The 33-year-old – who says he has been a registered Republican for about six years – said he was kicked, punched and choked, and feared for his life when the crowd turned on him at the gathering in Reno, Nevada.

Crites cited Trump’s treatment of Mexicans, Muslims and women as the reason he decided to protest again Trump, who he described as “a textbook version of a dictator and a fascist”.

Moments later, Trump reappeared on stage and said: “Nobody said it was going to be easy but we will never be stopped. We will never be stopped.”

The US Secret Service later said in a statement that no weapon was found on the subject detained at the rally, who had been released.

The Guardian found a bruised and shocked-looking Crites outside the auditorium. He said he was shaken and had pain in the back, but was otherwise uninjured.

Crites said when he was on the ground he heard someone yell “something about a gun” and he kept telling those on top of him that he had merely been holding a sign.

He was unaware, until the Guardian told him, that Trump had been ushered from the stage amid the mayhem.

1. The forkking people there knew he had no gun... Unless, everyone has a gun... Then Trump or

anyone at rallies in general are not safe.

He was already down when the crowd said that!

There is a sickness in Trump's crowd.

2. Lousy job

Imagine being assigned to protect the big orange blob? These agents must have done something outrageous to be assigned to the tRump campaign. His followers seem to be low class, low lifes.

Can't believe the MSN hasn't picked up on this yet. All they need to do is rewatch the video.

11. "something about a gun" - Anyone see the irony here?

This goes to the heart of the gun-humping, "no-one-better-take-my-gun-away", 2nd Amendment-trumps-all political party?

Just the utterance of "Gun!" sends them scurrying like rats. They really are a paranoid hypocritical bunch.

23. Donald Trump Jr. and top aide retweet baseless allegation of assassination attempt

Trump was quickly rushed off-stage by Secret Service at a campaign rally in Reno, Nev., on Saturday night as a scuffle erupted in the crowd directly in front of the stage and a man was led away. It wasn’t immediately clear exactly what had happened.

But amid the chaos, some people seemed sure. Within minutes, at least two top Trump campaign voices — Donald Trump Jr., and top social media aide Dan Scavino — passed along unsubstantiated claims that the GOP nominee had just survived an “assassination attempt.”

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/11/05/donald-trump-jr-and-top-aide-retweet-baseless-allegation-of-assassination-attempt/

They haven't removed the tweet.

26. I know.

And last night on CNN, the commentators were praising Trump for his composure.

One said it showed he has "the temperament to be president."
