Trump and allies continue to put forth false notions protesters are paid professionals! Who paid everyone at the Women’s March all across America?
Republican legislators all over America are receiving backlash from Americans for supporting Trump’s continued pronouncements that protesters are paid professionals.
The president tweeted this morning:
“Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
This is common in authoritarian thinking. When the public rallies in support of the leader, those citizens deserve to be celebrated. When the public rallies in opposition to the leader, those citizens should be dismissed as corrupt and ignored. MSNBC is reporting this isn’t the first time the president has claimed protesters are being paid.
