Well, of course. Donald Trump normalized violence. You know, him, not the people who want to defund the police and let the cities burn.
According to the Washington Free Beacon:
“So did like anyone walk out after that happened???” wrote Asha Rangappa, the CNN analyst best known for doxxing a Washington Free Beacon intern. “Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?”
Steve Schmidt, the schlubby Lincoln Project cofounder . . . offered a similar assessment. “Do you want to understand how Trump happened? Watch the Oscars and the crowd reaction,” he wrote. “Applause for assault in a tuxedo in California is the same as applause for assault while wearing a red hat in Alabama.”
Howard Stern . . . said the fact that Smith, who would go on to accept the best actor award for his role in King Richard, did not face any meaningful consequences for his actions was an example of “how Trump gets away with shit.”
