Donald Trump Racially Insults African American Hero

Former President Donald Trump slammed Kevin McCarthy after the House speaker rejected the suggestion that January 6 rioter Ashli Babbitt was “murdered.”



In a post in Truth Social, the former president said he “totally” disagrees with comments McCarthy gave to reporters. The speaker was asked whether he backs Georgia congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s assessment of Babbitt’s death.

It has been noted that Babbitt, an Air Force veteran and supporter of the extremist QAnon conspiracy theorists, was shot and killed during the January 6 riot in 2021 by Capitol police officer, Lieutenant Michael Byrd, who faced no criminal charges over the incident.

During a meeting of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee on Tuesday, Greene suggested that Babbitt was “murdered” by the officer and that “no one in this Congress has really addressed that issue.”

When asked if he agreed with the sentiment shared by Greene, who has formed a key alliance with the House speaker in recent weeks, McCarthy dismissed the idea, adding “I think the police officer [Byrd] did his job.”

In a social-media post, Trump has criticized McCarthy for the comments and also launched a series of attacks against Byrd.

“I totally disagree with the Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, in that the Police Officer ‘Thug,’ who has had a very checkered past to begin with, was not just ‘doing his job’ when he shot and killed Great Patriot Ashli Babbitt at point blank range,” Trump wrote on Truth Social.

“Despite trying to keep him anonymous, shielded, and protected, this MISFIT proudly showed up on NBC Fake Nightly News ‘bragging’ about the killing. He was not a hero but a COWARD, who wanted to show how tough he was. ASHLI BABBITT WAS MURDERED!!!”
