On two separate occasions, both while while discussing Black Lives Matter, Trump has claimed to have witnessed protestors calling for moments of silence for the gunman who killed five police officers in Dallas without specifying where or when these instances occurred.
The first time Trump tried to peddle this delusion occurred during a Fox News interview with his buddy Bill O'Reilly on Tuesday afternoon…
"It's very sad when somebody called for a moment of silence for this maniac that killed the five police, you know you just see what's going on and it's a very, very sad situation and hopefully it can be healed,"
Shortly after the Fox News interview aired on the East Coast, Trump appeared at a rally in Westfield, Indiana, where while he was in the midst of criticizing Black Lives Matter protestors for holding rallies across the country he once again reiterated the incendiary claim...
“The other night you had 11 cities potentially in a blow-up stage. Marches all over the United States—and tough marches. Anger. Hatred. Hatred! Started by a maniac! And some people ask for a moment of silence for him. For the killer!”
"Anger. Hatred. Hatred!"
This is not the first time Trump has lied about witnessing specific incendiary events. Earlier in his campaign, he claimed that he witnessed thousands of Muslims cheering after the 9/11 attacks. Much like these recent fantasies those claims were never officially confirmed either.
