CNN gives platform to maniac who tried to rush Trump; what were they thinking?

Thomas DiMassino, the 22-year-old protester who rushed the stage at a Dayton, Ohio, Donald Trump rally Saturday, had a clear goal in mind — to take the stage over from the Republican presidential front-runner who he calls a “bully” and a “coward.”

“I was thinking that I could get up on stage and take his podium away from him and take his mic away from him and send a message to all people out in the country who wouldn’t consider themselves racist, who wouldn’t consider themselves approving of what type of violence Donald Trump is allowing in his rallies, and send them a message that we can be strong, that we can find our strength and we can stand up against Donald Trump and against this new wave he’s ushering in of truly just violent white supremacist ideas,” DiMassimo told CNN Sunday.

If that was his goal, he never quite made it — he was quickly stopped by Secret Service agents who were there to protect the candidate.

Social media thought it hypocritical that CNN, which decries violence at Trump rallies, would choose DiMassino as an interview subject.

The Wright State University student was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic. His next court date is Wednesday, March 16.
