Trump’s Spox Pierson Claims Reporters ‘Literally Beat’ Trump Supporters

Screen Shot 2016-08-15 at 12.01.31 PMToday during an appearance on Fox News, Donald Trump‘s go-to spokesperson Katrina Pierson made a startling proclamation. She used the word “literally” before announcing that reporters are beating Trump supporters into submission.

That’s not how the word “literally” works.

In fact, if anything, Trump supporters have been antagonistic to reporters. There was a photojournalist who was choke-slammed at a rally earlier this year and Katy Tur wrote last week that she has been targeted by Trump himself at rallies, which has led to her needing to be escorted to her car by security. Those are some examples of things that have literally happened.

Watch Pierson continue Trump’s attacks on the “dishonest media” above.
