Trump Supporters Violently Shove a Young Black Woman out of Super Tuesday Rally


Donald Trump supporters were seen attacking and shoving a young black woman out of a Super Tuesday rally in Louisville, Kentucky, last night. The incident, which was recorded and posted on social media by a local television reporter, is the latest in a string of events for the Republican front-runner that have turned violent. Several men are seen shoving the woman until she stumbles, as others cheer.

The video comes a day after a Time photographer was seen being manhandled and thrown to the ground by a member of Trump’s security team. In December, a Black Lives Matter demonstrator was dragged out of a Trump rally as people were screaming violent exhortations such as “light the motherfucker on fire” and “kick his ass.”

The real estate magnate has largely dismissed the violence, at one point suggesting one black activist “should have been roughed up”—comments that do not appear to have affected his support in the Republican primaries.
