Liar in Chief is at it again. Taking a page out of the Sean Hannity playbook Trump’s latest tweets seems to assume that protesters are paid to show up.
Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

The response to Twitler was fast and probably hurt Little Finger in Chief’s feelings.
@realDonaldTrump I protested peacefully this week. I did it because I despise your policies. Didn’t know I could get paid. Will do it again.

.@realDonaldTrump You’re letting the actions of a handful overshadow the legitimate concerns of the 65 million people who voted for Hillary?

On Tuesday Hannity had former Speaker Gingrich and Trump supporter on to discuss the lie that progressives are showing up to protest and are getting paid to do it. And last night the Fox News host wanted to know if Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama should condemn the violent protesters.

Question of the Day: Do you think former President Obama and Hillary Clinton should condemn the violent left wing protesters? #Hannity

When Tea Baggers were protesting Obamacare no one was on TV asking if people were paid for their time. They also weren’t doing what the right always wants from any minority – condemnation. However, if a white man goes into a Church and guns down African-American worshipers you don’t see much action being taken by the right-wing. That is, except to defend the “guns.”
What the right wing doesn’t understand is that those who are protesting peacefully are protesting because of policy, not personality. They are protesting so their voices are heard. A right which is a part of the First Amendment in the Constitution that Conservatives love to selectively cherry pick. Of course, not everyone is peaceful, but that doesn’t mean they were paid; and it certainly doesn’t mean that Hillary Clinton or Barrack Obama owe Americans an apology for the actions of a minority.
