With Donald Trump’s penchant for inciting anger and violence at protesters and media at his rallies, today it’s being reported that Time Magazine photographer Chris Morris was choked and thrown to the ground by a Trump security guard.
Morris told an NBC journalist earlier that he did nothing to provoke the violence, except to put one foot outside the press pen while photographing protesters.
It’s being reported now that Morris was assaulted by a USSS agent, not a private Trump security guard, but isn’t yet confirmed by the Secret Service.
Here’s video showing the entire assault — this photographer really was violently assaulted and choked.
