Donald Trump Swarmed by Secret Service (Attacker's name is Thomas Dimassimo)
People Magazine ^ | 3/12/2016 | ADAM CARLSON

Posted on 03/12/2016 10:56:24 AM PST by Marie

Hours after Donald Trump canceled a Friday night rally in Chicago, citing safety concerns as hundreds of vocal protestors filled the crowd, he appeared before a crowd in Dayton, Ohio, to condemn the "planned attack" in Illinois, Reuters reports – even as a man at the Dayton event allegedly moved toward the stage, sending Secret Service agents to surround Trump.

Video from the rally captured the moment agents suddenly appeared next to Trump when a man "attempted to breach the secure buffer and was removed rapidly and professionally," a campaign spokeswoman told NBC News.

Identified as Thomas Dimassimo, he was charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic, Dayton Airport Police Chief Mike Etter told NBC News. Dayton Airport Police did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for a comment.

Trump himself seemed jarred by the moment, though he bounced back afterward, telling the crowd, according to the Dayton Daily News, "Is anything more fun than a Donald Trump rally?"

"Donald Trump Swarmed by Secret Service (Attacker's name is Thomas Dimassimo)"

It's too bad the headline wasn't "Donald Trump Swarmed by Secret Service (Attacker's name was Thomas Dimassimo)."

He had intent to commit the assault so conspiracy charges should be made as well. They need to throw the book at this guy unless he has a private email server in his closet at home, then he should be given a pass and allowed to run for office.

I did try to post the entire headline, but FR wouldn’t let me. So I had to cut off the end.

If you can think of a better way to get the information out and fix the accuracy of the headline, I suggest that you contact the mods and have them change it to something more appropriate.

Complaining to me does no good. I did my best to conform to the limitations of FR’s posting rules.

TRUM seemed “jarred” because he *was* literally jarred, when the scuffle crash-bumped the make-shift stage he was standing on, enough to jar it upward.

CSPAN video is a better tale of the stage jarring TRUMP, and Youtube is a better video of the disruptor and how the Secret Service and TRUMP security are assigned in a crisis.

Thx.

They know Donald will easily beat Hillary so they resort to caveman methods since nothing else works. All the polls are wrong just like they were for Obama vs. Romney. Everyone knows Trump will be president if he is the GOP’s nominee. If he’s not the GOP’s nominee, then the GOP loses everything and history is made.

One does not know whether these terrorists are going to just yell obscenities or be a suicide bomber. A terrorist needs to be taken down fast and hard, even if it results in their death. This is important because there may also be diversionary tactics. Multiple agents or guards should not be tied up stopping or dealing with one terrorist while leaving a security gap for another terrorist to exploit.

Trump pointed at a guy in the crowd and said that he heard the guys warning.

You can post the full (long) title in the Body of Thread section.

In any case, I was only commenting on the parenthetical part of the title.

“Trump himself seemed jarred by the moment.”

Lie.

Trump turned to confront the danger.

At no time was he rattled.

I checked the video to see if he was reaching for his side arm, but no need.

“Where do i donate or volunteer for Trump’s campaign?”

https://www.donaldjtrump.com/

That is the ONLY place to donate or buy gear or sign up to receive emails. He does NOT contact you unless you ask for it, unlike the spamming of my mail box by Cruz/Rubio.

There are many scammers out there selling bogus Trump gear and keeping all the $$$...one of them is the NRSC...the SENATE who scams Trump supporters then gives the donations to THEIR SENATE candidates.

Cruz got LOTS of it...and NO, you don’t ever see him condemning these scams.
