After a graphically violent parody video was shown at a meeting of Donald Trump supporters at his Miami resort, the White House said Trump “strongly condemns” the video, the AP reports. The video reportedly shows a likeness of Trump shooting and stabbing political opponents and members of the news media.
White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham indicated Trump had not yet watched the video, adding that “based upon everything he has heard, he strongly condemns this video.”
“The video portrays Trump’s critics and media members as parishioners in a church fleeing his gruesome rampage,” the AP reports. “The fake Trump strikes the late Sen. John McCain in the neck, hits and stabs TV personality Rosie O’Donnell in the face, lights Sen. Bernie Sanders’ head on fire and shoots or otherwise assaults people whose faces are replaced with news organization logos.”
The video reportedly shows Trump’s face superimposed on a killer’s body.
“Among the targets: former President Barack Obama, Black Lives Matter, Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Rep. Adam Schiff, who as Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee is leading the impeachment inquiry of Trump,” the AP adds.
