Protesters at a Donald Trump fundraiser at the Minneapolis Convention Center got between vehicles and jumped on the hood of a Secret Service SUV in Trump’s motorcade as the candidate was leaving the building.
WILL THE MEDIA IGNORE THIS TOO?
Police can be seen moving in to clear the protesters but only after a major security breach had taken place.
The video was posted by Emma Sapong with MPR.

“Protesters, earlier tonight, trying to stop #Trump’s motorcade after his fundraiser in the convention center”
The Star Tribune posted a photo of police rushing in to protect the motorcade. The caption used downplays the chaos and harassment caused by the protesters.

“Update: Protests at Donald Trump event turn unruly late. Police: No arrests, minor damage. http://strib.mn/2bzKrKA”
At the Star Tribune website, there was no mention of the protesters blocking and jumping on a vehicle. The photo of police belatedly protecting the motorcade reads:
“Police pushed back forceful protesters in a tense moment as Donald Trump’s motorcade left a fundraiser at the Minneapolis Convention Center on August 19, 2016, in Minneapolis, Minn.”
The Leftist website Unicorn Riot accused the Secret Service of attacking the protesters who blocked Trump’s motorcade.

“Secret Service briefly stole one of our cameras & attacked protesters trying to stop #Trump motorcade – vid coming”
The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported a protester claimed his foot was run over by a police vehicle in the motorcade.
“There were no arrests and no injuries reported in connection with the Trump event. One protester who was helped away from the crowd said a police SUV drove over his foot as Trump’s motorcade was leaving. Police documented minor damage to the convention center, including spray-painted grafitti on the exterior walls.”
