Alt-Right Leader Richard Spencer Punched in the Face During Live Interview


While speaking to reporters on the street in Washington, D.C. today during the inauguration ceremonies, alt-right leader Richard Spencer was punched in the face by a hooded man.

Explaining that the pin on his lapel was Pepe the Frog and going into what it symbolizes, a man came flying in with a hard right cross to Spencer’s cheek, much to the shock of Spencer and those surrounding him.

Instead of retaliating, Spencer just began walking down the street, obviously shaken.

There were a number of protests that took place last night and today during the inauguration ceremonies. At the ‘DeploraBall’ yesterday evening, attended by many prominent alt-right members, there was a large demonstration outside the event.
