The president of the United States is suggesting that the 75-year-old protester, Martin Gugino, who was pushed down by Buffalo police is a member of Antifa, an anti-fascist group. The president claimed the man was trying to blackout the police equipment with his phone and fell harder than he was pushed.
Gugino’s attorney Kelly Zarcone says, “Martin is out of ICU but still hospitalized and truly needs to rest. Martin has always been a PEACEFUL protestor because he cares about today’s society.” Zarcone adds, Martin “is also a typical Western New Yorker who loves his family. No one from law enforcement has even suggested anything otherwise, so we are at a loss to understand why the President of the United States would make such dark, dangerous, and untrue accusations against him.”
