Another Donald Trump rally has erupted in violence, this time in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday night.

Another Donald Trump rally has erupted in violence, this time in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday night.

BuzzFeed’s McKay Coppins posted video of an altercation between rally attendees, security guards, and a protester where a Trump supporter can be heard yelling, “Light that motherf*cker on fire!”

Coppins posted the video to Twitter, which shows an African-American man on the ground surrounded by security guards. A woman can be heard shouting, “Let him get up!” while a another man yells, “Get your hands off him!” A police officer then breaks in and pulls the man up.

According to Coppins, Trump “gleefully narrates clashes between activists and security, press swarm with cameras/phones, supporters crowd around cheering.”

“Every time another activist gets dragged out of room, Trump berates reporters for taking pics. ‘They are terrible! The worst!’ Crowd boos,” Coppins adds.

As violence becomes more of a common occurrence at Trump rallies, the law of averages dictates that at some point someone is going to get seriously hurt.

    Having been to a few meetings that were disrupted by opponents [Teabaggers], I have no problem with these protesters being evicted. Perhaps some of the reactions from Trump onlookers were extreme but not unexpected. Protest outside all you want, but shouting down the speaker is just trashy behavior.

    I think BLM people are going to find that not everybody (actually, probably very few people) appreciate their disruptive behaviors. If they want to protest, raise hell, break into liquor stores and set businesses on fire, then it would probably be best if they do it in their own neighborhoods.
