Trump is Being Sued by Both Sides for Inciting Violence

A federal judge recently ruled that a lawsuit against Trump filed by protesters who were assaulted at one his campaign rallies could proceed because the First Amendment does not allow you to incite violence, but they're not the only ones suing Trump over the incident.

One of the perpetrators of violence against protesters is also suing Trump.

White nationalist Matthew Heimbach, who allegedly assaulted a protester at a campaign rally for President Donald Trump in March 2016, on Monday filed a lawsuit claiming that Trump directed him and other rally attendees to remove protesters.

Heimbach denied “physically assaulting” protesters in the suit. He nevertheless claimed that he acted “in self defense” and “in reasonable defense of others,” and did so “pursuant to the directives and requests of Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President.”

Did he or didn't he assault someone as requested by Trump and the Trump campaign?

I did not see this coming.

    Damn. Should have bought popcorn futures when I had the opportunity.


  • I wonder if he’ll still pay for their defense now. 🤔😏

  • Wow, his followers really believe in the courage of their convictions don’t they. /snark

    It is HI-larious that they are so quick to throw Herr Gropenfuhrer under the bus. Just another example of immature Drumpf devotees really are.

    I think the appropriate description of trump and everything surrounding him and his supporters is “clusterfuck”.
