Edited Video Of Trump Murdering His Opponents Was Shown At Pro-Trump Conference
Last week at a pro-Trump conference at the president’s Miami resort, organizers showed a graphically violent video depicting a fake Donald Trump shooting, stabbing and physically assaulting his critics and members of the news media, according to The New York Times.
The conference was hosted by American Priority at Trump National Doral Miami and included Donald Trump Jr., former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis among its speakers.
Sanders and Trump Jr. reportedly did not see the video at the conference, which was held over three days and involved various events.
An attendee of the conference used a cellphone to record the video, which appeared to use an edited scene from the movie “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” and sent the footage to The Times.
The Times described the scene:
The video depicts a scene inside the “Church of Fake News,” where parishioners rise as Mr. Trump — dressed in a black pinstripe suit and tie — walks down the aisle. Many parishioners’ faces have been replaced with the logos of news media organizations, including PBS, NPR, Politico, The Washington Post and NBC.
Mr. Trump stops in the middle of the church, pulls a gun out of his suit jacket pocket and begins a graphic rampage. As the parishioners try to flee, the president fires at them. He shoots Black Lives Matter in the head, and also shoots Vice News.
Some of those in the church try to apprehend Mr. Trump. He fends them off and makes his way toward the altar, knocking over several pews. He wrestles a parishioner with a Vice News logo as a face to the ground and then shoots the person at point blank range. In the background, the former F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, is seen trying to get away.
Also attacked by the fake president in the video were the late Senator John McCain, Rosie O’Donnell, Rep. Maxine Waters, and Senator Bernie Sanders — whose head the fake Trump lights on fire.
Numerous others are also included in the clip. The scene ends with “Trump putting a stake into the head of a person with a CNN logo for a face,” and then he “stands on the altar, admiring his rampage, and smiles.”
The organizer of the event, Alex Phillips, said in a statement that the video was part of a “meme exhibit” at the conference.
“Content was submitted by third parties and was not associated with or endorsed by the conference in any official capacity,” Phillips said. “American Priority rejects all political violence and aims to promote a healthy dialogue about the preservation of free speech. This matter is under review.”
All parties questioned by The Times, including Trump Jr. and Sanders, said they do not condone violence.
Meanwhile, the real Trump told his supporters at a campaign rally on Friday that there is an “unholy alliance of corrupt Democrat politicians, deep-state bureaucrats and the fake news media.”
