On Thursday, Trump supporters held a “Deploraball” inauguration celebration at the National Press Club Building in Washington D.C. and were met with protestors chanting anti-Trump rhetoric and showing acts of violence. Police were lined up outside of the building to protect the party-goers inside as rioters were seen spraying mace and throwing bottles at those trying to enter.
Below, you can see a Deploraball attendee getting beaten while the aggressors yell “bleed Nazi, bleed.”
James Allsup, a Trump supporter, posted pictures of his bloodied head after getting hit by a violent protestor.
In the video below, you can see James Allsup during one of the moments he got assaulted along with footage of comedian Gavin McInnes getting into an altercation as he tried to enter The National Press Club Building.
Earlier this week, we reported that James O’Keefe and Project Veritas released undercover videos of anti-Trump activists planning to deploy smoke bombs made with butyric acid during the Deploraball. A few of the members of the radical left-wing group “DisruptJ20” who are dedicated to making “a bold mobilization against the inauguration of Donald Trump on January 20, 2017” were reportedly on the guest list to attend the event, but their tickets were refunded and they were barred from entering the building.
Though none of the activists were able to get inside the building, smoke bombs were still seen to be deploying outside. NBC4 reporter Shomari Stone got caught up in the middle of the chaos and shared a video online.
James O’Keefe tweeted in response.
Shomari Stone also reported that protestors lit a “Make America Great Again” hat on fire.
Vermin Supreme, the older gentleman who has been seen at protests throughout the 2016 Presidential campaign donning a boot as a hat, was also present outside of the National Press Building.
