Fox News contributor and leading conservative podcaster Dan Bongino and his wife were two of several people harassed by mobs of protesters as they left the White House Thursday after President Donald Trump’s speech to close out the Republican National Convention.
On Friday, the former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent shared video of the incident involving a number of people he described as “BLM terrorists” harassing him and insulting his wife, Paula.
“Is that your b***h wife?” one of the harassers can be heard saying a number of times.
The mob also called her “b***h a**” while one said, “Ho, learn to walk in heels.”
At another point, a harasser tells Bongino, “You’re an embarrassment,” all of which appeared to be attempts to goad the bestselling author into responding.
“The minute you walked out … they were all waiting right there, alleged protesters,” Bongino said on his program.
“You have to be careful. We’re not the violent ones. I’m not gonna be the one who initiates any type of violent action, ever. It’s not what I do. It’s never what I did. However, like any sane human being, I will defend myself if you put your hands on me. Nobody did that,” he added.
He said that he and his wife walked “two or three more blocks being called ‘racist'” while receiving an estimated “50-60 middle fingers.”
“Told these BLM terrorists to watch my show today after they followed us for over a mile threatening my wife and I and calling her a ‘b***h-a**.’ I promised I’d make them famous. Don’t miss the show for a full explanation of how ugly it really was,” Bongino wrote on Twitter Friday night.
During his show, Bongino noted, “I’m not a violent man, never will be. There’s no excuse for preemptive violence. None, I’m sorry, not in a civilized country. But if you want to dance, we can dance. They don’t want to dance.”
He added that after he and his wife left the RNC venue at the White House, one of the harassers pledged to follow “these motherf——s” back to their hotel, which is what happened.
“These guys and women are total cowards and chumps,” Bongino told his listeners. “They attack in packs … It’s like they have this hive mind … they know they have to attack in packs because they are legitimately chumps,” he said.
“When you stare them in the face, they look down, they won’t do anything … They’re total cowards when you confront them. Totally. Mark my words. They don’t have a shred of courage or dignity, but they do attack in packs and it gives them, like, collective power because they know that if it breaks bad for them, their friends will hit you with a skateboard,” he continued.
The former NYPD officer said the ordeal last about a half-hour, and that about 20 people were harassing them.
“These are not protests,” Bongino stressed. “Not only are these not peaceful protests, throw that out the window. These are not protests! They’re not protests! We saw these people, some of them, leaving our hotel we were staying at this morning at six o’clock,” he said.
“Why are they staying at a hotel? How did they get there? The hotel we stayed at wasn’t cheap! Did we not see three of them this morning, Paula, walking out? Yes we did! These are not protests. This is a paid, organized mob of lunatics. This is not a protest,” he noted further.
Scores of other attendees at the RNC event were confronted as well.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who — along with his wife, Kelley — was harassed so badly he believed they would be killed had it not been for the intervention of Metropolitan Police in D.C., called on the FBI to investigate because he, too, believes there is a support system funding the ‘harassers.’
“There’s something going on here,” Paul told Fox News on Friday. “This is like the FBI needs to be involved.
“My feeling is that there is interstate criminal traffic being paid for across state lines, but you won’t know it unless you arrest them,” noted further.
State Democratic Rep. Vernon Jones of Georgia, who endorsed President Trump during an RNC speech earlier in the week, was also accosted along with a woman he was with. Both of them also had to seek protection from the Metro PD.
