Trump calls post-RNC ‘thugs’ out for what they are: ‘Protesters, your ass! I don’t talk about my ass’

Like a surgeon with a scalpel, on Friday the president carefully cut through the endless lies being told about the rioters destroying America’s cities, starting with the frequently heard refrain that the rioters are just “peaceful protesters.”

Speaking at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, President Donald Trump first laid into the Democrats for tacitly (and sometimes outright) supporting the “thugs.”

Listen from the 15:28 mark (*Language warning):

“Today’s Democrat Party is filled with hate. Just look at Joe Biden’s supporters on the streets screaming and shouting at bystanders with unhinged, manic rage. You see it. It’s crazy. It’s crazy,” he began during one part of the speech.

He then highlighted the events that had transpired a night earlier in Washington, D.C., where left-wing extremists had harassed, hounded and tried to assault attendees as they left the White House after the conclusion of the Republican National Convention.

“You had to see last night in Washington. It was a disgrace. It was a disgrace that these people are representing the United States of America,” he said.

Protesters? You know what I say? Protesters, your a–. I don’t talk about my a–. They’re not protesters. Those are anarchists, they’re agitators, they’re rioters, they’re looters. You say that, and some of the people back there — oh, how dare you, these are friendly protesters. They’re just looking for trouble.”

The phrase “my a–” is used to express disbelief. For instance, one might say, “Joe Biden will win the 2020 presidential election my a–!” The president took this well-known phrase and twisted it to make a point about the media’s false reporting.

For clarification, here is how the “protesters” behaved (*Graphic content):

Despite this despicable behavior, virtually every mainstream media outlet in America chose to label the clear-cut extremists and rioters “protesters.”

Fact-check: FALSE.

“These are just bad people, troublemakers, and they shouldn’t be representing our country at important events, and we’ve got to stop it,” Trump continued.

“Democrats have no complaints about the rioters and the vandals marauding through our cities in mass unruly demonstrations, but they don’t believe law-abiding citizens can go to church together.”

While some Democrats like presidential nominee Joe Biden have issued weak, vague statements condemning violence in general, many Democrats on the local, state and national level have repeatedly defended their beloved “peaceful protesters.”

Moreover, numerous Democrat officials on the local and state level have repeatedly refused help from the president, all while simultaneously acting as if it’s his fault that left-wing extremists have been ripping their cities apart piece by piece.

Earlier Friday, for instance, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler sent a rude, snarky letter to the president refusing help, despite his city having experienced weeks upon weeks upon weeks of endless rioting and mayhem (save for one brief break on Thursday).

Hours after he sent the letter, rioting erupted again in the Democrat-controlled city:

Yet according to the likes of Biden, it’s Trump’s fault that left-wing extremists continue to riot in a city whose left-wing leaders refuse to accept help:

Continuing his remarks late Friday, the president expressed fury over the harassment that Sen. Rand Paul and his wife had endured outside the White House on Thursday because of D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s decision to let the rioters run the streets.

“That wasn’t friendly protesters. They were thugs. The mayor gave bad instructions last night. That should have never been allowed to happen when a senator like Rand Paul walks out, and thank God we had some good police around him, and they took a tremendous, tremendous abuse,” he said.

“And Rand Paul was in big trouble last night He’s a good guy. He’s a friend of mine. And that shouldn’t happen to anybody, but here’s a U.S. senator walking outside, and those four policemen should be brought over to the White House, and we ought to give them a medal of some kind. We’re going to.”


As for Democrat mayors like Bowser who keep bowing to the mob, they ought to be ashamed, the president added.

“And the mayor should be ashamed of herself for that kind of a display of incompetence, because that’s what’s happening in Portland, and that’s what’s happening all over where you have Democrat-run cities. Just take a look.”

He wasn’t kidding.

Here’s what transpired in D.C. late Friday:

Similar events played out in a plethora of other Democrat-controlled cities, including Raleigh, North Carolina:
