"We were assaulted today at the trump rally in Mesa, Az. We were standing on the side of the road, exercising free speech..." said Amanda Blackhorse, a Diné activist.

"Of course the assault happened in front of Mesa Police Department- a trump supporter bull dozed his way thru our crowd knocking over a woman and others. My property damaged in the process. The police watched and did nothing. The woman in the video above is only one of very many, I was able to get this on camera as we were marching. trump spoke in Mesa, in an airport hanger, miles from the city. This was the perfect spot for them, far from the larger crowds that would face him in the city streets. The line to the event was endless, men, women and children with red hats, harassing us, saying vile things, and even following us to our cars."  wrote Amanda Blackhorse on her twitter.

President Donald Trump supporters turned out in droves for his Mesa rally, while few protesters were spotted in the crowd of red.

Many in the Mesa crowd at the International Air Response hangar at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport wore "Make America Great Again" hats. Others were dressed in red, white and blue shirts. Signs saying "Drain the Swamp" and "Trump Pence" were plentiful.

Thousands of cellphones were raised taking photos and videos as Trump's helicopter arrived in Mesa at about 6:45 p.m. Women supporters blew him kisses, and the crowd chanted "USA" as he walked through the crowd.

Mr. Trump continued his attacks on Democrats, whom he called an "unhinged mob."

"Vote for the jobs, not for the mobs," he said, adding that the Republican majority was "very fragile." He urged rally goers not to be "complacent." He also targeted some Democrats by name, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who recently released a DNA test proving that she has a Native American ancestor in response to attacks from Mr. Trump.


"We can no longer call her Pocahontas! I don't know what I'm going to do," Mr. Trump said of Warren, claiming the test showed that she had no "Indian blood."

This needs to stop. 🛑

  1. 21st century and few people still behavig like speachless beasts. She moves like a chicken before the fight. Such basic bahaviour in evolutioned species is both funny and nasty at the same time. Biologically speaking those specimens are without representatives in the future, but in the meantime (mean-time...) we suffer them as a pain in the neck. Every society has a couple of thoses non-adapted specimens, as a matter of fact. Huge hug. Be strong.

    People exercising their constitutional right to freedom of expression don't "need ass whopped."
    What is whopped.."?
    If you think people fighting for their rights is the behaviour of "children," you are part of the problem.

  5. To unknown, why would both sides need their ass"s whooped when it's the Trump supporters who are acting like drunk, drug crazed little children?
