Trump shares video of white couple pointing guns at protesters in St. Louis

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Monday shared a video on Twitter of a white couple pointing firearms at a group of protesters in St. Louis who were marching to the mayor's residence to demand her resignation.

The 30-second clip, which was posted on Twitter by ABC News, showed a man and woman holding weapons as a number of demonstrators walked by about 20 yards away. The couple was standing outside their home in the upscale Central West End neighborhood of St. Louis, according to The Guardian.

The footage shows an unidentified man yelling and pointing a rifle at the protesters, many of whom were recording the scene on their cellphones. A chant of "let's go" could be heard in the background as a number of protesters walked past the couple's home.

The incident in St. Louis came amid continued unrest across the U.S. as protests over racial injustice and police brutality have swept the nation following the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

23. Gimme a BREAK...

 

he and his sadistic, shit eating minions like Miller and Meadows know exactly what they're doing. Gas lighting, deflecting, obfuscating and poking the hornet's nest. It's simply another attempt at stoking hate, resentment, division and venom among Americans to take the heat off his criminality regarding Covid19 and 125K dead, the Russian bounty story and whatever else. He will burn this whole country down if he's allowed but he won't be. We are on the edge of the abyss, but hanging tough for now. 4 more months until election day and he's kicked to the curb where he belongs. FUCK him and his sick BS.

10. And no moat!

Building a castle with no moat! There should be zoning laws requiring a moat, wouldn't you think? They must not be as wealthy as they think they are.

5. Mark and Patricia McCloskey

https://heavy.com/news/2020/06/mark-patricia-mccloskey-st-louis-couple-guns-video/




Doesn't look like anyone entered their property. 2 lawyers should probably know there are some crimes involved in pointing guns at people walking down the street. Black children have been murdered by police without having any weapons at all.

27. Those were his "struggling young attorney" years.

Then came the BIG MONEY, and an equally BIG ASSHOLE to give it to. It's not too hard to figure those two out. Just like the Trumps, they're "white trash with cash", who think the largest, most ostentatious, most conspicuous display of wealth WINS!

Assholes, complete and total assholes, who probably give less than I do to charities each year.

Protesters might be inside their gates. That article described how they spent 30 years restoring the historic mansion.

20. ***might***

Innocent people might get shot. Might get killed. The couple might go to prison or face consequences. Guns might get accidentally discharged while pointing at someone.

The most basic gun safety training says don't point a gun at anyone unless you are planning to shoot them.

13. The irony in all this is that the Mayor of Saint Louis

...Lyda Krewson is a woman AND a Democrat! Why are Chump and the Chumpettes defending her? Why is Chump trying to start a race riot in Saint Louis?

None of this makes sense until you realize that Chump's racism beats politics and (I guess in this case) sexism. Lyda Krewson went on a live blog and named demonstrators (with names and addresses no less) and many are people of color living in Saint Louis. It just happened on Saturday and caused a controversy, including many Democrats calling for her resignation. That blog was deleted but not before it made the rounds and went viral. The doxxed protesters are extremely scared because of the white privileged people that are walking around with guns, just like this couple.

Of course Chump is doing everything to call attention, just hoping the race war will start real soon and take the spotlight off his disastrous poll numbers.

I swear his secret mission from Putin is to do everything in his power to kill more Americans every single day until his defeat.

And who's to stop him? Jack effin Dorsey??

16. IF the situation was reversed, race wise

those 2 would be rotting meat right now. America is such a fustercluck of hypocrisy, hate, greed and stupidity. We're headed toward something culturally, racially and class wise and my gut tells me it ain't going to be pretty.

18. Gated community

Their defenders are pointing out they live in a gated community and therefore the protesters were trespassing just by being there. This assumes that someone who lives in the gated community didn't give them the OK. It also assumes that gated communities are lawful, if these streets are paid for with money from the city or if anything is maintained with taxpayer money in that community, the homeowners there do not have a right to keep the public out.

but the opulent home doesn't match the mouth breathers that live in it. This is proof that you can be a total idiot and still have wealth.
