(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday, a New York judge ordered President Trump to give a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit that was filed by protesters of “Mexican origin” who claim to have been physically assaulted outside Trump Tower in 2015.
The six protesters are suing the Trump Organization, the security crew, the Trump campaign, and Donald Trump for the assault they claim to have suffered.
In 2015, a protest erupted outside Trump Tower in New York in response to comments Trump made when he was announcing his bid for the presidency, which were taken out of context by the mainstream media, launching the media’s bid to smear Trump as much as humanly possible.
They’re certainly performing admirably there, although they haven’t done much else since that fateful day.
What Trump really said when he launched his campaign was:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said. “They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
So because some triggered leftists decided to protest before reading the whole quote, these plaintiffs apparently think Trump is personally to blame for their allegedly being assaulted.
On Friday, Associated Press reported:
A New York judge Friday ordered President Donald Trump to give a videotaped deposition in a lawsuit filed by protesters who claim they were roughed up outside Trump Tower in 2015.
State Supreme Court Judge Doris Gonzalez of the Bronx denied Trump’s effort to quash the subpoena, ordering him to videotape a deposition for the trial before jury selection begins Sept. 26.
The lawsuit stems from a Sept. 3, 2015, protest outside Trump Tower over negative comments Trump made about Mexico and Mexican immigrants when he had begun his presidential campaign that summer.
Six protesters of Mexican origin who claimed they were assaulted sued Trump, the Trump Organization, his presidential campaign and security personnel.
President Trump tried to quash the subpoena, but the judge, however, sided with the protesters’ attorney. Judge Gonzalez said that there the argument that there must be “exceptional circumstances” to depose the president of the United States did not apply in this case.
“The decision today stands for the proposition that no one is above the law, including Mr. Trump,” said Benjamin Dictor, a lawyer for the plaintiffs.
The Democrats will use anything to try to undermine the presidency, even unnecessarily hooking the president into a lawsuit that his lawyers could easily fight for him.
