On Monday, Donald Trump hosted another large rally in Sin City, and during the event an illegal alien went for a police officer’s gun, but the media has been pretty much completely silent on what happened after.
Apparently, the 19-year-old British native had been in the country illegally after overstaying his visa, and he’s really not a fan of Trump. In fact, he hates Trump so much that he was willing to make an attempt on the billionaire’s life during a massive public event, which is why the media has been silent about it.
An illegal alien tried to steal a police officer’s gun and assassinate a presidential candidate. Doesn’t really fit the liberal narrative this election cycle, does it.
The Guardian has more:
A British man has been detained and charged with attempting to seize a police officer’s gun at a Las Vegas rally in order to commit an act of violence against Donald Trump, authorities said on Monday.
Michael Steven Sandford was arrested at the Saturday rally after grabbing at the holster and handle of a gun at the hip of a Las Vegas police officer who was providing security at the event for the presumptive Republican nominee.
A federal magistrate on Monday found that Sandford was “a danger to the community and a risk of non-appearance” and ordered that he be held without bail, according to a spokesperson for the Department of Justice, who also confirmed that Sandford is a British citizen.
Sandford allegedly told a US agent, referred to in the complaint as special agent Swierkowski, that he had driven to Las Vegas from California in order to kill the presumptive Republican nominee for president.
According to the complaint, Sandford had gone to a gun range called Battlefield Vegas on 17 June in order to learn how to shoot. There, he fired 20 rounds from a Glock 9mm pistol, which, the complaint says, was the first time he had ever fired a gun.
The document also states that Sandford told Swierkowski that if he were on the street tomorrow, he would try it again. He claimed he had lived in the US for approximately a year and a half and had been planning to attempt to kill Trump for about a year but finally felt confident enough to try it on Saturday, according to Swierkowski’s report.
He also told Swierkowski that he had tickets for a Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona, later that day, and planned to try to kill Trump there as well.
Nice, right? Imagine for a second if someone had made an attempt on Hillary Clinton. The media frenzy would be unending, and every right-winger in the country would be demonized ofr inciting hatred and violence towards the Democrat candidate.
But alas, an illegal alien commits an illegal act to try to obtain a firearm so he can kill a GOP candidate and there’s silence, probably because a registered Democrat and known Hillary supporter who radicalized himself just shot up a nightclub and killed 49 gay people. They had absolutely no good way to spin this one at all, so it’s not even getting coverage, even though there was a very real threat posed to Trump.
What a disgrace. The media really has become a complete and total disgrace.
