If you support Trump, you are just a terrible person. There is no bottom to his depravity:
The video of cops in Buffalo shoving an elderly man so hard that his head smashed off the ground and blood started gushing from his right ear shocked people across the nation.
But President Trump isn’t convinced it’s real.
Tweeting Tuesday morning, the president pushed a baseless conspiracy theory—with no supporting evidence—that the scene could have been a “set-up” orchestrated by far-left activists. He even went as far to suggest that the 75-year-old man, who remains in hospital after the incident, could be an “ANTIFA provocateur.”
The president picked up the conspiracy theory while watching One America News—the Trumpist network that the president has repeatedly promoted on social media.
Trump wrote on Twitter: “Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur. 75 year old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment. @OANN I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?”
The two officers involved in the incident have been charged with second-degree assault after they were filmed pushing the 75-year-old protester to the ground. Aaron Torgalski, 39, and Robert McCabe, 32, have both pleaded not guilty.
But my president said it went away!
Texas reported a record number of coronavirus hospitalizations Monday — weeks after Gov. Greg Abbott took the lead among governors in easing social distancing measures to help bring jobs back.
There are currently 1,935 Covid-19 patients in hospitals across the state, topping the previous hospitalization record of 1,888 patients on May 5, according to new data from the Texas Department of State Health Services.
Texas was among the first states to relax its statewide stay-at-home order, allowing it to expire April 30 and some businesses to resume operations May 1.
Who would have thought prematurely opening after doing the bare minimum would not be a good plan?
