Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, April 17, 2017

A Donald Trump supporter who allegedly assaulted a young woman during a campaign rally last year is claiming the president is to blame in his response to a lawsuit against him. Alvin Bamberger, 75, who is accused of shoving protester Kashiya Nwanguma at a Louisville, Kentucky, rally on March 1, 2016, alleges in a cross claim filed Friday that he would not have touched the woman had then-candidate Trump not urged his supporters to remove protesters from the venue. "Bamberger had no prior intention to act as he did," reads the response to the suit filed in U.S. District Court for Western Kentucky. "Bamberger would not have acted as he did without Trump and/or the Trump Campaign's specific urging and inspiration."

Guessed he just "snapped" when Drumph commanded.

Guess we owe an apology to all the guards and executioners at Nazi death camps, huh.

The party of "Personal Responsibility" takes none.

"Donnie TicTacs made me do it, your honor"

That should be all he needs, Right Righties?

Different people are triggered to violence by different trigger words.

'Show Me Your Taxes' is a trigger at Berkeley. 'Get'em outta here" is a trigger in Louisville.

Here on the DR, triggers are varied and produce a host of violent reactions.

So Mr Bamberger admits he is a brainless puppet that is willing to commit violence at the bidding of a person who he see's as a authority figure even though that authority figure is not a officer of the law.

I am not a lawyer but I dont think you can use that as a defense

"Kashiya Nwanguma"

Would Mr. Bamberger have been so easily convinced he should push this young lady had her name been Deborah Kazinski? The old man was easily convinced because he is a racist piece of crap just like his leader.

And the fat protester who gets in the middle of a Trump rally and her only objective is to disrupt and cause trouble goes to court for getting shoved and you snow flakes can only use the "GOP always plays the victim" line.

Basically Bamberger admits he's a sheep who can't control himself.

But really, I have a hard time getting too worked up about this lawsuit. Everyone involved is like a player in an opera of the stupid. Trump is an arrogant blowhard, his followers are authoritarian sheep with a mean streak, and the allegations by the protesters have very little actual substance. There was no real assault. The protesters were there to stir up sh--, and they did. Then the authoritarian sheep responded as expected. If I were on the jury I'd find for the plaintiffs and award them $1. Now go away, all of you.

you know shoving someone is illegal?

sounds like you are playing the victim card while being the aggressor, a true golden urine flake. Noot to mention you bring up the physical characteristics of the person being shoved because you are a scumbag.

being an emasculated conservative who's wife is the bread winner of the family has really hurt your ego hasn't it.

People are sheep. We often act differently as a mob.

A politician who stands at a podium surrounded by security and incites crowds to violence is making an incredibly reckless and dangerous move that could get people killed.

no you are stupid.

the new smart is to rent out what you own (which I do) and rent where you want to live and not be tied down and be able to live in places like Manhattan (which you can't afford with the one income your wife provides)

Did Obama promise to pay your legal fees too?

I wonder if our "strict constitutionalist" Supreme Court will let this case proceed and force Trump to submit to depositions given its recent ruling in the Paula Jones case?
