A reporter was violently attacked at a Trump rally.
“Ron Skeans was violently pushed and shoved by a member of the crowd while covering a President Trump rally in Texas…” BBC’s Washington Correspondent Gary O’Donoghue stated on Twitter. “The man was removed by security and Ron is fine. The president could see the incident and checked with us that all was okay. It is clearly unacceptable for any of our staff to be attacked for doing their job.”
Reporter Jacob Rascon captured the incident from another angle and said a fellow reporter had to restrain the Trump supporter.
“This is the shameful moment when my cameraman Ron Skeans was attacked by @realDonaldTrump supporter in El Paso — after the President repeatedly goaded the crowd over supposed media bias,” said O’Donoghue. “Happy Ron is fine.”
