Trump to CNN Reporter: 'Your Supporters...Shot a Young Gentleman and Killed Him Not With Paint, but With a Bullet'


Oh, CNN. They try so hard to get President Donald Trump to stumble on their ‘highly enlightened’ questions, but the radically left outlet routinely comes up short. I mean, that doesn’t stop them from seemingly lying on a daily basis in order to push the narrative they’re trying to indoctrinate the American people with, but they still fail.

On Monday, Trump was taking questions from the radical media and it was CNN’s turn to try and distort reality. CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked the president about why he has neglected to mention that his supporters were also in Portland recently — which amounts to a couple of days compared to the extreme far-left basically occupying the city for three months — and why he hasn’t condemned their violence, using paintball guns and pepper spray.

“Well, I understand they had large numbers of people that were supporters, but that was a peaceful protest,” Trump said. “And paint is a defensive mechanism. Paint is not bullets.”

That’s when Trump took Collins to the woodshed by flat-out saying that CNN’s “supporters” are the extremely violent ones.

“Your supporters — and they are your supporters, indeed — shot a young gentleman and killed him not with paint, but with a bullet,” Trump said, looking at Collins. “And, I think it’s disgraceful.”

Trump was, of course, referring to the shooting of an alleged supporter of the Patriot Prayer organization. Video of the incident has gone viral because before the man was shot someone in the video proclaimed that the guy was a “Trump supporter.” The scumbags in Portland also could be seen in other video celebrating that a “fascist” had died.
