Richard Spencer, the white nationalist leader of the so-called “Alt-Right” movement, was punched in the face while giving an interview as protests raged around him during President Donald Trump‘s inauguration celebrations.
According to Business Insider, Spencer was standing at the corner of 14th and K Street in D.C. when a masked individual ran up and sucker punched him on the side of his face.
From Business Insider:
Spencer emerged as a prominent Trump supporter during the chaotic 2016 presidential election — most notably leading a group of supporters in a Nazi-esque salute at a November conference in Washington D.C. The president disavowed the group that same month.
After the incident, Spencer was reportedly ushered to a taxi by an associate.
