—Trump supporters circled and beat up a black protester for shouting “Black Lives Matter.” The assaulted protester, Mercutio Southall Jr., says his attackers called him “monkey” and the N-word as they shoved him to the ground, punched and kicked him. As Southall was dragged out by security, Trump’s minions chanted, “All lives matter.” That’ll learn ‘im! (Inquisitr)
—Trump defended his minions who assaulted a peaceful protester, saying, “Maybe he should have been roughed up, because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.” The protester is the disgusting one? Apparently Trump is the rubber to our glue. (Washington Post)

—Jeb Bush only wants the US to take in Christian refugees because ‘Murica! Or War On Christmas? I lost track. (HuffPo)
