Trump Calls It A 'Beautiful Thing' That Cops Struck Journalist Ali Velshi With Rubber Bullet

President Donald Trump called it “the most beautiful thing” that MSNBC journalist Ali Velshi was struck in the knee with a rubber bullet while he was covering a peaceful protest in Minneapolis in May.

Trump inexplicably deemed it “law and order” as a campaign rally crowd in Minnesota cheered him on Friday. Velshi was breaking no law — nor were protesters — when he was injured by police.

Trump mistakenly recounted in his tale that Velshi was painfully struck by a tear gas canister and complained afterward. “Oh my knee, oh my knee,” the president mocked.

Velshi was taken aback that Trump considered his injury “law and order.” He asked: “What law did I break while covering an entirely peaceful (yes, entirely peaceful) march?”

1. Velshi was one of the Fake Media, an enemy of Trum...err the people.

He needed to feel pain, err Justice.

2. Velshi was a bad ass on that day, and also most days behind the anchor desk.

He gets my highest regards for the MSNBC cast and crew.

3. Only a deranged delusional sadist

Would say something like that. Every day he speaks or tweets he's driving more people away from voting for him and republicans.

4. I remember. Here's the MSNBC video with Ali Velshi:

Police Shoot Tear Gas Toward MSNBC Crew, Protesters, 'There Was No Warning Whatsoever' - MSNBC


Ali Velshi and his crew are hit by tear gas while reporting from the George Floyd protests in Minneapolis.
