Last night protests over the cold-blooded police murder of George Floyd erupted in D.C., with protesters marching around the White House to express their anger. Secret Service agents were dispatched to cordon off the perimeter of the People’s House, enforcing a “lockdown” just inside its gates. Apparently Trump and his minions were peering out the windows, like rats holed up in their bunker. Today, Trump Tweeted out his praise of this taxpayer-funded protective cocoon spun around him, mocked and threatened the protesters, and summoned his hateful followers to assault them this evening.
From the New York Times:
A day after claiming he didn’t mean to suggest that law enforcement officials should shoot people who were part of the unrest in Minnesota, President Trump said on Saturday that the Secret Service had been prepared to sic the “most vicious dogs” on protesters outside the White House gates on Friday night.
For those who may have been concerned about Trump’s personal safety, he reassured them that he “couldn’t have felt more safe.” He also painted the Secret Service as his own personal Einsatzgruppen, claiming they were essentially straining at the leash to kill those Americans exercising their right to protest outside the White House.
Trump claimed that Secret Service agents told him they were clamoring for engagement with the protesters. “We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and good practice,” he claimed he had been told.
He also appeared to invite his own supporters to amass outside the White House on Saturday to counter the protesters, despite a ban against gatherings of more than 10 people in effect in Washington amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???” he tweeted.
If this country is to survive, this monster needs to go.
