American Priority, a pro-Donald Trump GOP group, hosted the conference at Trump National Doral Miami this weekend showed a first person shooter doctored video of Trump massacring members of the news media and political enemies using a gun and other weapons.
The New York Times reports:
A video depicting a macabre scene of a fake President Trump shooting, stabbing and brutally assaulting members of the news media and his political opponents was shown at a conference for his supporters at his Miami resort last week, according to footage obtained by The New York Times.
Several of Mr. Trump’s top surrogates — including his son Donald Trump Jr., his former spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis — were scheduled to speak at the three-day conference, which was held by a pro-Trump group, American Priority, at Trump National Doral Miami. Ms. Sanders and a person close to Mr. Trump’s son said on Sunday that they did not see the video at the conference.
The video, which includes the logo for Mr. Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign, comprises a series of internet memes. The most violent clip shows Mr. Trump’s head superimposed on the body of a man opening fire inside the “Church of Fake News” on parishioners who have the faces of his critics or the logos of media organizations superimposed on their bodies.
American Priority says in a statement at the top of its website that the “unauthorized” video was shown in a side room and wasn’t “approved, seen or sanctioned” by the conference’s organizers. Alex Phillips, of AP told the New York Times that the video was played as part of a “meme exhibit” and wasn’t associated with or endorsed by the conference “in any official capacity.” ”American Priority rejects all political violence,” he said, adding that he’s looking into the matter.
The setting for the video massacre is the “Church of Fake News,” and Trump murders by shooting people in the face. Among the targets: former President Obama, Black Lives Matter, John McCain, California Democratic Representative Maxine Waters, Bill and Hillary Clinton and Rep. Adam Schiff .
“This video isn’t funny. It will get people killed,” said Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, and Cindy McCain condemned the video, saying it “violate[s] every norm our society expects from its leaders and the institutions that bare their names.”
The White House hasn’t responded to a request for comment from this website.
