2020 has been a rough year for Donald Trump and the United States.
Not only has he done a terrible job of handling the coronavirus pandemic but he has also faced months and months' worth of Black Lives Matter protests following the death of unarmed Black people in the US at the hands of police.
In cities across the nation, we’ve also seen police officers assaulted with bricks, rocks, bats, Molotov cocktails, frozen bottles of water.
Somebody said last night, one of the protesters — I saw it — he said, 'It’s only water. How can water hurt you?' Yeah, they don’t say it’s frozen, in a bottle the size of a football. And they throw it at the police. It’s unbelievable. 'It’s water.'
And then they have cans of soup. Soup. And they throw the cans of soup. That’s better than a brick because you can’t throw a brick; it’s too heavy. But a can of soup, you can really put some power into that, right?
And then, when they get caught, they say, 'No, this is soup for my family.' They’re so innocent. 'This is soup for my family.' It’s incredible.
And you have people coming over with bags of soup — big bags of soup. And they lay it on the ground, and the anarchists take it and they start throwing it at our cops, at our police.
And if it hits you, that’s worse than a brick because that’s got force. It’s the perfect size. It’s, like, made perfect.
And when they get caught, they say, 'No, this is just soup for my family.' And then the media says, 'This is just soup. These people are very, very innocent. They’re innocent people. These are just protesters. Isn’t it wonderful to allow protesting?'
