READ: Sarah Sanders Says: ‘President Trump Condemns All Acts of Violence Against Any Individual or Group of People’

How soon they forget.

During President Donald Trump’s speech at a campaign rally (his first of 2019), a frenzied supporter of his lunged at a BBC journalist in the press pool, shouting “F**k the media,” shoving reporters, and overturning a camera.

The supporter’s actions were caught on video.

The attack received swift backlash from journalism institutions everywhere, including the White House Correspondents Association.

Now, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has released a statement regarding the matter.

“President Trump condemns all acts of violence against any individual or group of people – including members of the press. We ask that anyone attending an event do so in a peaceful and respectful manner.”

The idea that Trump condemns all acts of violence—especially at his rallies—is demonstrably false.

He’s previously fantasized about punching protestors in the face.

He suggested “Second Amendment people” do something about Hillary Clinton.

He encouraged attendees of his rally to “knock the crap” out of protestors as well, assuring he’d pay the court costs of anyone who did.

Trump has called for cops to be rougher on suspects.

It wasn’t long before people began pointing this out.

Trump has spoken in the past about whether or not his rhetoric incites violence.
