On Saturday, supporters of the President gathered in locations all around the country for Make America Great Again rallies and marches. But with radical leftists in attendance at some rallies, violence erupted. But according to ABC’s Good Morning America on Sunday, it would appear that the Trump supporters were to blame. “All this as tensions grow higher than ever been Trump supporters and protesters. The fresh violence at rallies. Protesters tackled and beaten,” claimed Paula Faris during the show’s opening tease.

They released a dove in Huntington Beach, California promoting peace,” Faris noted when they finally made it to the story. But she then lamented that “However, a short while later, scuffles broke out with counter-protesters.

Reporter David Wright followed Farris’ lead and rambled on about the protesters. “In Ohio, California, And even the Jersey Shore, fistfights and mayhem at pro-Trump rallies, as protesters clash with supporters,” he reported as he played a clip of anti-Trump protesters chanting “No Trump. No KKK. No fascist USA.

For Wright, it may only have “allegedly” happened, but according to Reuters, it did occur. “Four counter-protesters were arrested, three for illegal use of pepper spray and one for assault and battery, Kevin Pearsall, a spokesman for the California State Parks Police said on Saturday evening,” they reported on Sunday.

Wright also mentioned that a pro-Trump march planned in Philadelphia was called off after fears over safety arisen. “The two sides squared off and sounded off at each other. Police caught in the middle,” he bemoaned. But he failed to mention those anti-Trump protesters were the ones causing the chaos. “A mostly-masked protest group marched around the Mall, at times igniting flares and smoke, burning things on the road,” as reported by the local ABC affiliate.

Towards the end of his report, Wright touched on a Trump tweet that claimed: “ObamaCare will explode.” He leaned on a former Obama White House official to smear the President, asking: “When he says, this thing is going to explode, is part of that in his power?” “That’s a little bit like inheriting an overseas war and deciding you’ll let the soldiers get killed because it wasn’t your idea to enter the war,” responded Andy Slavitt.

That’s a rather ironic assertion since we saw U.S. troop casualties in Afghanistan balloon under Obama’s leadership.
