Justifying police violence, Trump lies about Buffalo man bleeding from ear after police attack

The president is nuts.

Martin Gugino, 75, hit the pavement and bled from his ear when a Buffalo, NY police officer shoved him violently, without provocation.

Martin Gugino is still in the hospital, now in serious but stable condition.

The president is now lying about Martin Gugino.

Impeached president Donald Trump tweeted today that this violent incident may not have happened at all, or was staged by an "Antifa" provocateur, and justifies violence by the police against Americans.

Reports the Daily Beast, OANN employs Kremlin media operatives in Russia:

If the stories broadcast by the Trump-endorsed One America News Network sometimes look like outtakes from a Kremlin trolling operation, there may be a reason. One of the on-air reporters at the 24-hour network is a Russian national on the payroll of the Kremlin's official propaganda outlet, Sputnik.

He is citing a disinformation segment from the right-wing and Russia-connected disinfo TV channel OANN, based on some bullshit written on a conspiracy theory blog funded by who knows who.

Garbage in, garbage out.

Here is the tweet:

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?

Here's the truth.
