On June 18th, a man attempted to grab a police officer’s gun at Donald Trump’s Las Vegas rally and assassinate the presidential contender. Now, anti-Trump protesters are showing their support for the would-be assassin on Twitter. This tweet, objectively showcasing the man who was arrested, has pulled in the support of hundreds of people who believe he was in the right for attempting to kill presumptive Republican nominee Donald J. Trump.

Responses came flooding in:
should we start a GOFUND page for his bail?
I think this is the second time someone’s tried at a Trump rally. Hopefully the third time’s a charm *fingers crossed*.
I don’t see the problem
Shout out to the guy who tried to kill trump. Thanks for your effort
Props to the guy who tried to kill trump
It’s a shame that guy who tried to kill trump flopped
and so on…
As Breitbart pointed out:
At first, it may not seem like these tweets hold much weight, but they are heavily symbolic of the violence and intolerance the left has turned to in response to Donald Trump. Tweets like these are a representation of the demographics brought to light during this year’s election cycle.
