Outrage erupts as pro-Trump event plays fake video of Trump mass shooting the media and pistol-whipping McCain

Outrage is building in Washington as the news circulates that a video depicting the president committing the mass murder of his political enemies was recently played at a conservative event at his Doral golf resort in Miami, Florida.

The video shown at the three-day American Priorities conference depicts an edited church massacre scene from the film “Kingsman: the Secret Service.” President Trump’s head has been superimposed on the shooter as he guns down people with the superimposed heads of his critics and the logos of media corporations.

We will not post the video here, but The Washington Post reports:

As the shouting intensifies, Trump abruptly stops walking and turns to face the angry mob. He pulls out a black gun from his jacket’s inside pocket and shoots a person edited to represent late actor Peter Fonda, who was a vocal critic of the president, in the head from point-blank range.

Trump takes down Bloomberg, Vox and “Fake News” in quick succession before shooting Politico. At one point, he grabs someone who represents the Black Lives Matter movement in a chokehold and shoots that person in the head.

After shooting MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, Vice News, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and Slate, Trump tries to shoot late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), but he is out of bullets. Instead, he uses his gun to deliver a vicious blow to the back of McCain’s neck.

The attack continues with Trump going after some of his most prominent detractors. He stabs actress and comedian Rosie O’Donnell and repeatedly punches Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). He goes on to shoot MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and later assaults Hillary Clinton with a gun.

The video meme is a deeply disturbing manifestation of the president’s constant attacks on the free press and their denigration as “biased” and “fake” for their insistence on accurately covering his endless crimes and assorted scandals. The president himself has tweeted similar, if less violent and inflammatory, video memes from his own Twitter account, including one showing him beating “CNN” in a wrestling match.

The event organizers are predictably claiming ignorance and condemned the video. “Content was submitted by third parties and was not associated with or endorsed by the conference in any official capacity. American Priority rejects all political violence and aims to promote a healthy dialogue about the preservation of free speech. This matter is under review” said event organizer, Alex Phillips.

CNN slammed the video in a powerful Twitter response.

While Trump himself was not present, his son Don Jr., Florida governor Ron DeSantis, and former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made appearances at the conference. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham tepidly offered up a condemnation on Twitter:
