Donald Trump is causing quite the ruckus in American politics.
What started as a parody campaign has now, nine months later, mushroomed into a legitimate bid for the White House. That’s upsetting to the political establishment on both sides of the aisle and now, both the media and America’s entrenched political establishment are struggling to come to terms with the brzen billionaire’s success.
Last week, in what some view as a prelude to a fascist future for America, Trump suggested he would change libel laws in order to give himself greatere scope to sue journalists who pen negative articles about him. But as you’ll see from the clip shown below, it may be more efficient to just “choke slam” some folks.
The reporter, one Christopher Morris, appears to reach for the throat of a secret service agent in one of the clips. “I never touched him,” Morris says, in what is frankly, a lie.
Still, it’s a bit disconcerting. We would ask: Is this a preview of what’s in store for America’s press?
Here’s the official word from the Secret Service:
