On Thursday, while delivering a speech in front of a crowd of supporters in Jacksonville, Florida, Donald Trump once again decided to troll MSNBC reporter Ali Velshi for getting shot with a rubber bullet in Minneapolis.
"They say it hurts. That is only going 52 miles per hour. A bullet goes about 2000 miles per hour." — Trump on Ali Velshi getting shot with a rubber bullet in Minneapolis pic.twitter.com/Oo8e05QoZn

Twitter users decided to call out the president for appearing to promote violence against journalists.
Glorifying violence on journalists: a cornerstone of authoritarianism

Hit him with a 52 mph projectile And then ask how it feels

@realDonaldTrump, you have no idea what you’re talking about, sociopath.
It’s designed to hurt like hell.
It’s about pressure (force/area) exerted over a very short period of time.
It’s designed to cause pain.

The crowd LOVES IT!! So he’s not going to stop anytime soon. It’s easy for him. He has no feelings towards fellow human beings whatsoever

Last week, he told a mostly white crowd in Minnesota that they had good genes.. Racehorse theory.
Barely a mention, like it was any old Wednesday that he praises whiteness

He hid in a bunker from children on skateboards.

What's his obsession with poor @AliVelshi? And they CHEER? He's just regurgitating every rally speech that's he's done since 2016.
