One protester managed to make his way into the press area despite the tight security and got close to President Donald Trump as he was on his way to a planned Senate GOP lunch on Tuesday. The protester who posed as a journalist was standing with reporters outside the Senate chamber on the building’s second floor. As Trump walked by accompanied by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others, the man tossed small Russian flags bearing the word “Trump” toward the president.

The man who identified himself as Ryan Clayton from Americans Take Action, a group that wants Trump to be impeached yelled, “Trump is treason. Why are you talking about tax cuts when you should be talking about treason?”

Now we have his identity It was discovered that the name of the man is Ryan Clayton from Bob Creamer group “Americans Take Action” and he was handing Russian flags. He was forcibly removed after the incident took place,
This is so sad. It is too bad that America has fallen to this level. Some people are so hateful. We are tired of all the violence and negativity. This is not freedom of speech. This is beyond hateful!
He should be arrested because he’s not exercising his freedom of speech, but he is inciting violence against people who have not been violent. He ought to know better. Surely he must be aware of what he is doing. But, he is just doing it anyway.
At least if he is going to disrespect a flag he chose the one that made Hillary a Uranium millionaire.
Expect to see more incidents like this as Trump’s term continues. The media is fanning the flames of resentment and hatred. They want more people like this dunce to take action. There’s a reason former president Jimmy Carter said the press is overwhelmingly critical of Trump. It’s not because they want him to succeed.
