Citing Misleading OANN Story, Trump Claims Injured Buffalo Protester Could Be ‘ANTIFA Provocateur’

Is Martin Gugino, the 75-year-old activist who suffered a head injury after cops in Buffalo, New York, pushed him down, an “antifa provocateur” intent on setting up the cops? President Donald Trump raised this possibility in a tweet Tuesday morning, citing a report by the unfailingly pro-Trump One America News Network (OANN).

He really shouldn’t have. Regardless of what Gugino intended, there’s no excuse for how the police officers handled him. It was wrong of them to shove an elderly man who posed no threat to them.

In any case, there’s no reason to think Gugino was “an antifa provocateur,”
