Trump Threatens To Fight #BlackLivesMatter Protesters If They Interrupt His Rallies (VIDEO)

Not one to miss even a single day of saying something that would get any other candidate immediately kicked out of the race, Trump spent a recent campaign rally suggesting he would physically fight #BlackLivesMatter activists if they tried to demonstrate at any of his campaign stops.

In an effort to “prove” he is “tougher” than Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump bragged that he would never allow activists fighting for racial equality co-opt an event that was supposed to be 100 percent about stoking his own narcissism.

“I would never give up my microphone. I thought that was disgusting. That showed such weakness.”

Back in reality, Sanders actually used the opportunity to do something Trump has never done: Listen. While the tactics the demonstrators used are highly contested, even within the liberal movement, there is no denying that the issues they hope to address are very real. From police shootings to economic inequality, African-Americans and other people of color face hardships that white Americans find difficult to truly fathom. Instead of digging his heels in, though, Sanders took their concerns and came back just one day later with concrete and serious policy proposals he hoped would speak to these concerns.

“We should not fool ourselves into thinking that this violence only affects those whose names have appeared on TV or in the newspaper. African-Americans are twice as likely to be arrested and almost four times as likely to experience the use of force during encounters with the police….This violence [by extremists] fills us with outrage, disgust, and a deep, deep sadness. Today in America, if you are black, you can be killed for getting a pack of Skittles during a basketball game.”

On his website, Sanders laid out a number of specific things that he would like to see accomplished if he were elected president.

What would Trump do? He’d just fight the demonstrators – or have his “people” do it.

“That will never happen with me. I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or other people will, but that was a disgrace. I felt badly for him. But it showed that he’s weak.”

Let’s take a brief interlude to imagine Donald Trump actually trying to fight a person. He better hope his “people” do it, because I can’t imagine it would go well for the man who, on the very same day, bragged that he planned on whining until he won. Sadly, his fighting words will likely send his poll numbers soaring with his radical conservative base. He’s already proven that being openly racist can get 20 or 30 percent of Republican primary voters to say they’ll vote for him. And like clockwork his fans on Twitter are applauding Trump’s comments:

In other news, Sanders just spoke to an auditorium full of 20,000 people. Trump spoke to 4,000 and lied about it. No wonder he’s jealous.
