In the face of massive, largely peaceful protests against police brutality, the police unions are fighting back, and they are powerful, especially with our Law’n Order Commander-in-Chief.
When Donald Trump lies to his base, instead of being factual, he sends out a conspiracy theory on Twitter.
That’s what happened after police in Buffalo knocked down a 75-year old protester, Martin Gugino, and left him bleeding on the ground, as police kept marching past him.
So Trump tweeted:
"Buffalo protester shoved by Police could be an ANTIFA provocateur. 75 year old Martin Gugino was pushed away after appearing to scan police communications in order to black out the equipment. @OANN I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set up?"
But everything in his tweet was false: https://www.politico.com/news/2020/06/09/trump-conspiracy-theory-protester-buffalo-cops-308716
Gugino is a peaceful protester, he did not scan police communications, and he is a far better communicator than our constant Liar-in-Chief.
