Frank Thorp V, a producer for NBC News, posted the shots above on his Twitter feed of a Donald Trump supporter greeting reporters at a Florida rally.
In a subsequent video clip,
Thorp said he'd asked the man for his name. Response:
"PATRIOT, AMERICAN PATRIOT! YOUR NAME IS TRAITOR!!"
This is another illustration of why it is shameful for people like Gov. Asa Hutchinson
to excuse 2nd-Amendment-solution comments by Donald Trump as innocuous rhetoric to get out the pro-gun vote. Words have meaning. They can be heard many ways, particularly by the excitable.
I write this knowing many will endorse the sentiments about media expressed in the photographs.
