‘F*CK THE MEDIA!’

Trump Supporter in MAGA Hat Attacks BBC Cameraman at Rally

A screaming Trump supporter in a red Make America Great Again hat attacked a BBC cameraman during the president’s Monday night rally in El Paso. Footage of the incident shows the BBC’s Ron Skeans being shoved off balance before the man is pulled away by security while screaming “Fuck the media.” Trump supporters near the attack can be heard chanting “Leave him alone.” Skeans told the BBC the “very hard shove” came from his blindside and he “didn’t know what was going on.” The reporter who was with Skeans, BBC Washington Editor Eleanor Montague, said: “The crowd had been whipped up into a frenzy against the media by Trump and other speakers all night.” A Trump campaign official suggested the attacker was drunk. The president reportedly checked Skeans was OK with a thumbs-up, and continued on with his speech after the cameraman returned the gesture.
