Trump supporter attacks BBC cameraman at El Paso rally

Source: BBC

A supporter of US President Donald Trump has attacked a BBC cameraman at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas.

Sporting a Make America Great Again cap, the man shoved and swore at the BBC's Ron Skeans and other news crews before being pulled away.

Mr Skeans said the "very hard shove" came from his blindside. "I didn't know what was going on."
...
Ms Montague said the protester had attacked other news crews but Mr Skeans "got the brunt of it".

10. Yes.

The BBC showed footage of the cult member being taken out of the space. I don't know if he was arrested. But tRUMP says his cult member was drunk, so it's ok.

12. The person escorting him out of the scene was also wearing a red hat.

Not likely arrested.

3. The BBC producer mentioned in the BBC article (Eleanor Montague) tweeted a video...

...which shows the presumed attacker after the incident. You can also see how the impact caused the camera to move all over the place.




Most of the articles right now are from the UK. There's no report on what, if anything, happened to the guy as of yet.

15. Find out who the asshole was, spread his picture far and wide, and lock him up - assault!!!

These violent trumpers need to spend lots of time in jail so they can "think" about their stupidity and receive their just punishment.

20. This was while trump was saying something about

"...Hispanics and Asians are at the lowest level EVER in the history of our country.....":

21. Is the British reporter a minority race member?

Maybe shitler's comment is what triggered the attack.
In any case, I hope the image of the attacker's face goes viral and he's caught.
