A white nationalist leader accused of assaulting a young African-American woman at a Donald Trump campaign rally filed a countersuit on Monday claiming the president directed him and other supporters to remove protesters.
Matthew Heimbach claims in his federal court filing that he “acted pursuant to the directives and requests of Donald J. Trump and Donald J. Trump for President” and that, if he’s found liable for damages, “any liability must be shifted to one or both of them.
”The legal fight stems from a March 2016 rally in Louisville, Kentucky, at which protesters were allegedly roughed up and ejected by Trump supporters after the then-candidate barked from the stage “get ’em out of here!”
I think it is perfectly reasonable to blame Trump for the violence at his rallies.
After all they blamed Hitler for the gas chambers didn't they?
By the way how delicious is it to see Trump getting sued by a white supremacist because he convinced the man to hurt black people?
(Here's some video of the event in question.)
