'The Young Turks' Panel: Violence Against Trump Supporters Is "Gross," "Hideous" -- Don't Give Them "The Moral High Ground"


Protesters and supporters of Donald Trump clashed in the streets of San Jose, CA outside of a recent rally. Protesters reportedly cornered Trump supporters, threw eggs at one, and punched another. Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz (What The Flick), John Iadarola (ThinkTank), and Jimmy Dore, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Protests outside a Donald Trump rally in downtown San Jose spun out of control Thursday night when some demonstrators attacked the candidate’s supporters.

Protesters jumped on cars, pelted Trump supporters with eggs and water balloons, snatched signs and stole “Make America Great” hats off supporters’ heads before burning the hats and snapping selfies with the charred remains.

Several people were caught on camera punching Trump supporters. At least one attacker was arrested, according to CNN, although police did not release much information.

CENK UYGUR: That's gross, don't do that. That is terrible. [The guy] said that he was sucker punched. You knwo why? Because he was sucker punched. And you see it clearly... The egg thing is gross. Don't do that, man. You're giving them the moral high ground. And it is the wrong thing to do, it is not just about losing the moral high ground. Don't do it, it is wrong, it is hideous.
