Shocker: Violence at Trump Rallies

Shocker: Violence at Trump Rallies
There are reports of violence at political rallies for reality TV star and billionaire authoritarian thug Donald J. Trump. Who would think that a supporter of  the man who said he’d like to punch protesters in the face would punch a protester in the face? What could drive the campaign manager of a man who has threatened reporters to rough up a reporter?

When little Donny Trump was in second grade, he punched his music teacher in the face. He was so incorrigible that his family finally sent him to military school. Sounds like it’s time for him to re-enroll.


“Donald Trump gives supporters permission to be violent at rallies: ‘I’ll defend you in court,’” Kellan Howell, Washington Times

“Cheers, a punch, a slur. What it’s like in the crowd at a Donald Trump rally.” Stephanie McCrummen, Washington Post

Stone Age Murder

“Scientists at Binghamton University have analyzed fatal wounds on a 430,000-year-old skull, and believe that they have uncovered one of the oldest murder cases known to man. The skeletal remains in question were found at an archaeological site in Spain, where at least 28 other skeletons were also discovered.”

And they hide their eyes
’cause the city is dying
And they don’t know why.”

Another Burrito-Related Shooting

A San Antonio Taco Bell customer, enraged that Beefy Crunch Burritos had gone up in price, fired an air gun at an employee and an assault rifle at police officers before barricading himself in a motel room.  After a three-hour Mexican-food standoff, a police SWAT team eventually subdued the suspect, Ricardo Jones, 37,  by using gas. Officers may have used jalapeño pepper gas.
