JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Ron Skeans, a BBC cameraman, was roughly shoved by a man clad in a MAGA hat at President Donald Trump’s rally in El Paso Monday night.

According to a BBC report, the man had been attacking various news crews, but Skeans got the worst of it, the blow so blindsiding him that the camera dipped to the floor and swung around crazily until the man was restrained.

Trump saw the attack from the stage and paused to give Skeans a thumbs up and ask if everything was okay.

Mere minutes later, Trump brought attention to the press in the room, jeering at them and eliciting boos from the crowd.
