Staged? Report Says Muslim Woman Kicked Out Of Trump Event

Staged? Report Says Muslim Woman Kicked Out Of Trump Event Coordinated Spectacle With CNN. Conservative Firing Line, January 9, 2016.

On Friday, Rose Hamid, a 56-year-old Muslim woman, and her male companion, were removed from a campaign rally for Donald Trump after she disrupted the rally.  But, Tom Tillison said at BizPac Review on Saturday, it now appears that she coordinated the spectacle with CNN. Hamid, Tillison said, “strategically positioned herself behind Trump and stood up in silent protest wearing a shirt that read ‘Salam, I come in peace,’ when the candidate began talking about Syrian refugees, according to the network.” She also sported a yellow star that was intended to resemble the star Jews were forced to wear by the Nazis, although it was not a Star of David.

Moreover, Tillison said, CNN interviewed Hamid “BEFORE the rally” began.

Tillison added: Full of chutzpah, Hamid displayed the same stereotyping she claimed to be protesting. “I figured that most Trump supporters probably never met a Muslim so I figured that I’d give them the opportunity to meet one,” she told CNN beforehand. “I really don’t plan to say anything. I don’t want to be disrespectful but if he says something that I feel needs answering I might — we’ll just see what strikes me.”

The audience booed the pair as they were removed, yelling “get out,” CNN reported. “You have a bomb, you have a bomb!” Hamid told CNN one Trump supporter said to her (of course, there is no video of that comment) — naturally, the network was there to interview her afterwards.

CNN reported: Major Steven Thompson of the Rock Hill Police Department told CNN Hamid was kicked out of the event because the campaign told him beforehand that “anybody who made any kind of disturbance” should be escorted out.

The Trump campaign, CNN said, “did not immediately respond to a request for comment asking why Hamid was escorted out of the venue.”

Here’s video of a post-rally interview she conducted with CNN’s Don Lemon: (embedded video)
