A BBC journalist has shared footage from Monday night’s Trump rally which appears to show a cameraman being attacked.
BBC Washington News Editor Eleanor Montague was at the president’s rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday with cameraman Ron Skeans. (Montague wrote a follow up tweet to explain that she initially misspelled Ron’s name “because predict text prefers the name Rob.”)
“Just attended my first @realdonaldtrump rally where my colleague BBC cameraman Rob Skeans was attacked by a Trump supporter,” she wrote alongside a video posted to Twitter.
“The crowd had been whipped up into a frenzy against the media by Trump and other speakers all night.”
The video shows Trump speaking at the podium, before the camera is abruptly knocked sideways. When it’s righted, we can see a man wearing a red MAGA hat being restrained by another man.
He yells “fuck the media” twice before being led away.
Jorge Salgado, a photographer in attendance, also shared footage from a different angle.
“Just had a man shove photogs and equipment over,” he wrote. “Here’s a video of him being dragged out of press row.”
Montague, meanwhile, returned to Twitter to confirm that Skeans is okay.
Mashable has reached out to Montague and will update this post accordingly.
