CSPAN Host Remains Silent When Caller Threatens ‘a lot of Bloodshed’ Against Trump Supporters

Boris Epshteyn, President Donald Trump’s 2020 strategic adviser, scolded CSPAN host Jesse J. Holland for ignoring a caller who seemed to threaten Trump supporters with “bloodshed,” noting, “I don’t think we should keep going” when the host tried to take another call.

“This morning a Trump supporter was killed, was shot and killed in a drive-by in Milwaukee. I don’t know if you got that news, but the people in Milwaukee are waiting for those troops to come in because they got weapons, and it’s going to be a lot of bloodshed when they come, so that’s all I got to say,” the caller identified as a Democrat named John said.

Epshteyn reacted, “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“Now you’ve got people on your air threatening our lives? Is that what it is, Jesse?” Epshteyn asked when Holland attempted to move to the next caller.

“I don’t think we should keep going, we just had a caller call in that said shooting Trump supporters is right,” Epshteyn said. “Anybody who is a Democrat or independent should listen to what that gentlemen just said and realize where the Democrats are in this country. They’re threatening our lives. It is disgusting, it’s despicable and it’s criminal.”

The threatening call comes after this weekend saw the tragic shooting of a black Trump supporter in Milwaukee, who was identified as a well-liked fixture of the city’s Black community who supported Black Lives Matter and President Trump.

Bernell Trammell, 60 years old, was shot and killed Thursday afternoon before a storefront with signs in the window supporting Trump’s reelection. Trammell was a local business owner in the Riverwest neighborhood in Milwaukee and ran a small business from the storefront.

Epshteyn said he hoped the Secret Service would investigate the caller but Holland didn’t respond and went straight to the next caller.


Denver Police Union Head Confirms ‘Stand-Down’ Order was in Place at Pro-Cop Rally

The president of the police union in Denver, Colorado, Nick Rogers, confirmed on Wednesday that there had been a “stand-down” order in place during a pro-police rally held by conservative activists, as reported by Fox News.

Rogers, head of the Denver Police Protective Association, explained in an interview with local radio host Peter Boyles, on 710 KNUS. As a result of the order officially being in place, Denver police were prohibited from protecting attendees of the “Back the Blue” rally when Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other far-left terrorist organizations suddenly appeared and began attacking the demonstrators.

One of the leaders of the pro-cop rally was conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, who described the attackers as wielding collapsible batons as they attacked her and others who were speaking onstage when the chaos began. Numerous fistfights broke out, and at least one pro-police demonstrator walked away with a massive bleeding gash in his forehead.

In the radio interview, Rogers said that upon learning of the stand-down order, he “reached out” to the police department and said “someone has to apologize. Someone from the police side has to apologize.” He also revealed that many of the demonstrators were ultimately saved when a single lieutenant who was present at the rally defied the order and broke ranks, keeping his officers at the rally to protect those who were being attacked.

Randy Corporon, a lawyer and one of the rally’s organizers, revealed that the excuse he was given by Denver Police Chief Paul Pazen, prior to the event, was that Pazen feared that “his officers were going to get hurt.” Corporon says he responded by simply saying that “he should allow his officers to do their job…if people are down there breaking the law, stop them.”
