HE DID THIS AFTER HAVING ALL THE PEACEFUL PROTESTERS IN THE SQUARE TEAR GASSED HOW IS THAT NOT PART OF THE TWEET

I almost can’t believe what I’m seeing. POTUS just walked out the front door of the White House and into Lafayette Square - the epicenter of the DC protests - to visit historic St. John’s Church, which was set on fire last night.

"Trump and Biden visit churches" You've got to be fucking kidding me Biden went to a church to listen to and hear from community leaders Trump had federal forces shoot tear gas at peaceful protesters so he could hold up a Bible for a photo-op Fuck off w/ this shit

@IngrahamAngle TONIGHT: Trump and Biden visit churches as protests continue. I'll have details. And why are some in the media condoning violence and looting on America's streets? I'll join Laura at 10:50pm E with analysis. #RaymondsReview @FoxNews

Bishop Budde: "The president just used a Bible the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition and one of the churches of my diocese without permission as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything that our churches stand for."

Let me help you contextualize this one, Harris This evening President Trump **had federal forces tear gas and shoot rubber bullets at peaceful protesters so he could** walk from the White House to St. John's Churh **for a photo-op**

This evening President Trump walked from the White House to the Historic St. John’s Church that was damaged during overnight violence. #GeorgeFloydProtests #StJohnsChurch #POTUS

"Tonight Trump had federal forces fire tear gas and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters ... he did it for a photo-op at a Church. ... He did it, according to our reporting, because he was angry at the reporting that he was taken to the WH bunker. That's how small this man is."

For fucks sake, add some context. Police deploy tear gas amid **peaceful** protests in Washington, D.C., **so Trump can have a photo op at a church**

MSNBC's Haake: I want to be super clear ... nothing happened on the side of the protesters ... then before the curfew mounted federal police using flash bangs and tear gas .. I was listening to POTUS speak about law and order as people were pushed aside by police forces.

Police outside the WH just repeatedly bashed a cameraman as they pushed back protestors - just now on @ABC7News

Don Lemon explains why police tear gassed peaceful protesters in DC: "This was a made for TV moment ... they wanted to create this moment for the cameras so that when Trump came out and gave his law and order speech for the cameras, there would be chaos on the streets in America"

It appears the president planned at 6:30pm address so that the nation would tune into police using force and tear gas to shut down peaceful protests.

In the Rose Garden, Trump calls himself "an ally of all peaceful protesters." At the very same moment outside the White House, police and troops have moved against peaceful protesters with tear gas and flash bangs.

Police just started charging and spraying tear gas at peaceful protesters in DC. 

"These protesters had gathered, once again very peacefully, and all of a sudden the police were ordered in, fired tear gas to disperse the crowd. It's turning very nasty"

Protesters have noted across the country officers at the protests covering up their badge numbers making them harder to ID. It seems as Americans protest for more police accountability, officers continue to openly flout the accountability procedures that already exist

🚨 Mayor of  #Louisville: The body cameras of those involved in the shooting last night that killed David McAtee were NOT active. The Chief of Police has been relieved.

Ed Henry on Trump's unhinged call with governors: "People are suggesting somehow [Trump's] inciting violence, but it sounds like to me he's trying to restore law and order."

OAN's Chanel Rion: "Is it possible that DC will be placed under martial law in order to protect these national monuments from further destruction?" 

McEnany: "I have not heard that discussed"

Fox contributor David Webb: Racism isn't the problem, it's people who talk about racism

We got where we are today because of "members of the media, rappers, influencers out there that have pushed this narrative, in this case, of always racism"

Sen. Tom Cotton suggests "no quarter" for rioters and looters. 

Historically, it means you kill people rather than arrest them. 

It's a literal war crime. 3

Anecdotally, I'm seeing a lot more media coverage of the small # of cops who joined protests than of the large # of cops who were unnecessarily violent toward protesters. Media should be accurately portraying the protests and police interactions, that's largely not happening

the easiest way to fight back is to just stop with the lies, bigotry, and conspiracy theories but they're not interested in that
