No Surprise That Trump Supporter Attacked Cameraman At Rally

Brownshirts, anyone? "F*ck the media!" the man yelled, as he was led away.

So, last night at Trump's rally in El Paso, a cameraman for the BBC was physically assaulted by one of those MAGA-wearing fascists. The cameraman was just doing his job. And the incident was captured on video for all the world to see: the BBC is probably seen by more people in the world than just about any other news source.

Great job, Trump.

A supporter of US President Donald Trump has attacked a BBC cameraman at a campaign rally in El Paso, Texas.

Sporting a Make America Great Again cap, the man shoved and swore at the BBC's Ron Skeans and other news crews before being pulled away.

Mr Skeans said the "very hard shove" came from his blindside. "I didn't know what was going on."

Mr Trump saw the attack and confirmed Mr Skeans was well with a thumbs up after it happened.

The president has had a fractious relationship with the media from the very start of his time in office.

He has claimed journalists are "the enemy of the people" and slammed the "fake news" for reports he deems unfavourable.

Mr Skeans said the man almost knocked him and his camera over twice before he was wrestled away by a blogger.
