Rubio: Protesters At WH Got What They Deserved

The Hill reports:

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said Monday that the protesters removed from Lafayette Park “deliberately stayed to trigger police action.” The Florida senator tweeted that “many in the media fell for the calculated & deliberate tactics of professional agitators.”

Law enforcement deployed tear gas into a crowd of peaceful protesters outside Lafayette Park across the street from the White House as President Trump prepared to speak in the Rose Garden Monday. Authorities began dispersing demonstrators at least 15 minutes before the city’s 7 p.m. curfew was set to take effect.
