Lots of action outside after Trump's rally last night.

Most of the MSM has been semi-quiet too (I wonder why?).

But one highlight is a CNN reporter got in the way of some "Gas" and all Hell started.

Apparently the reporter was "Talking" to CNN's home base and to Don Lemmon.

The reporter, Gary Tuchman, was discussing "the good news about no violence" while gasping for air.

Read and see the irony of it all....

CNN Reporter Outside Trump Rally Gets Tear Gassed, Can Barely Speak

CNN's Gary Tuchman, a correspondent on the ground in Phoenix, could barely speak to anchor Don Lemon after he got tear gassed.

"The police have deployed tear gas and some concussion ordinance that has startled people here. There hasn't been any violence so far, that's the good news. But the tear gas here is very acute. Most people have left," Tuchman reported.

"But all of our faces right now are burning, all of our throats are burning," Tuchman said.

"Why did it happen? I don't know the answer," he said.

Did you see the protester take a tear gas canister to the nuts?
I will try to post it when I get home later.

The term "peaceful protest" has become a joke.
Why would anyone listen to a person throwing # at them?

These are supposed to be our moral and intellectual superiors but they act like children having a tantrum.

Do you endorse the use of tear gas against Americans exercising their free speech rights?

Sounds like the CNN are trying to demonise the police for responding to a violent counter-rally appropriately.

They like to say every single riot is peaceful, even when they are caught in the crossfire.

So a few days ago you people were vilifying 'The Left' saying how THEY are all about violence but not 'The Right'. But here's a prime example === smiley face and all === how you people revel in violence. Hypocrites the lot of you.

Is throwing rocks and bottles covered by free speech rights?
I've never add spoken with a brick myself.

Just getting up to speed this morning, and I have not seen any reports of violence.

From what I've read, they used to tear gas and other ordinance to disperse the crowds.

Edit: Scratch that. I guess there were a few fights and some other items being tossed.

NO, and if you read the comments, there were thousands of peaceful Trump supporters, and about 500 Anti-Trump protesters who were throwing water bottles at the cops and got pepper sprayed. In that case, I fully support pepper spraying those who would endanger a cop's life.

You mean if the cops didn't show up there wold be no riot?

I've known that since my concert going days. Every time the cops showed up there was an incident (someone threw something) and the cops started the riot. If they didn't appear the gathering remained peaceful.

physically attacking the police is a free speech right now?

Damn, I can't wait to see what other rights turn out to be in fact a defence of anti-state violence.

It's the "101%" free speech rule.

Anything over 100% free speech is considered either:

1. Putting words in somebody's mouth that was never said,

2. Taking words from somebody out of context and changing the meaning,

or

3. A combination of 1+2

CNN is at "Level 1984%"

And

4. Some people mis-interpret comments from adversaries and take the free speech down to 50% for themselves.

I don't recall seeing reports of violence either.


Okay just looked and it seems there were confrontations after the rally but I'm on the east coast and had already gone to bed.
Last I saw they were using smoke.
