UPDATED VIDEO: Protesters Block Trump Motorcade, JUMP ON VEHICLE!

UPDATE AT END OF ARTICLE WITH SHOCKING NEW VIDEO. Protesters at a Donald Trump fundraiser at the Minneapolis Convention Center got between vehicles and jumped on the hood of a Secret Service SUV in Trump’s motorcade as the candidate was leaving the building. NEW: There are reports that the vehicle carrying Trump was attacked by the protesters.

MPR News:

“As Trump’s motorcade left the convention center, protesters swarmed his car, shouting “Hey, hey, ho, ho. Donald Trump has got to go.” Several police officers, some holding their bikes in front of them, ordered the protesters back to let the SUV leave.”

Former Minnesota Congressman Michele Bachmann, who attended the fundraiser, told Breitbart News that Trump’s vehicle was attacked.

…Bachmann said the protesters were using profanity to verbally harass Trump supporters, spitting on them, and were so much a threat to the community that police officers advised people that they needed to leave through alternative exits….

The ‘protestors’ morphed into rent-a-mobs, and then they became ‘rent-a-thugs’ looking for a beat-down. It was nothing more than Obama/Hillary’s lawlessness and disrespect for decency playing out on the streets of Minneapolis. The only idea the left seems to understand is physical violence used to intimidate political opposition. These brute thugs who attacked Donald Trump’s vehicle demonstrate exactly why we need to elect Donald Trump as our next President of the United States, so we can see respect for the rule of law return again in this country.”

WILL THE NATIONAL MEDIA IGNORE THIS TOO?

Police can be seen moving in to clear the protesters but only after a major security breach had taken place.

The video was posted by Emma Sapong with MPR.

“Protesters, earlier tonight, trying to stop #Trump’s motorcade after his fundraiser in the convention center”

The Star Tribune posted a photo of police rushing in to protect the motorcade. The caption used downplays the chaos and harassment caused by the protesters.

“Update: Protests at Donald Trump event turn unruly late. Police: No arrests, minor damage. http://strib.mn/2bzKrKA”

At the Star Tribune website, there was no mention of the protesters blocking and jumping on a vehicle. The photo of police belatedly protecting the motorcade reads:

“Police pushed back forceful protesters in a tense moment as Donald Trump’s motorcade left a fundraiser at the Minneapolis Convention Center on August 19, 2016, in Minneapolis, Minn.”

The Leftist website Unicorn Riot accused the Secret Service of attacking the protesters who blocked Trump’s motorcade.

“Secret Service briefly stole one of our cameras & attacked protesters trying to stop #Trump motorcade – vid coming”

The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported a protester claimed his foot was run over by a police vehicle in the motorcade.

“There were no arrests and no injuries reported in connection with the Trump event. One protester who was helped away from the crowd said a police SUV drove over his foot as Trump’s motorcade was leaving. Police documented minor damage to the convention center, including spray-painted grafitti on the exterior walls.”

UPDATE: NEW VIDEO POSTED BY UNICORN RIOT. Protesters blocked another Secret Service vehicle before being forced out of the departing motorcade’s path by aggressive police and Secret Service.
