A video from a protest outside the White House has gone viral in which a protester calls the Trump administration “a bunch of pussy-grabbing assholes.”
The video was posted to YouTube by the group Black Lives Matter New York.
In the video, the protester, who is wearing a black face mask and carrying a backpack, can be heard speaking to a man with a microphone.
“The president is a pussy-hugging asshole, and I’m tired of it,” he said.
“I’m tired, I’m angry, and we’re going to stop this.”
The protester also told the man to “get a job.”
In the background, a woman with her hair tied in a ponytail can be seen talking to a police officer.
The protester is shown standing behind a police line and saying, “You can’t talk to him if you’re not talking to him.
I’m a protester, I can’t say that.”
The clip was posted on YouTube by Black Lives MASSIVE.
“If you don’t have to talk to a cop, you can’t have a peaceful protest,” he says.
The protesters continue to speak with the police officer, who responds that he doesn’t “want to be rude” and “doesn’t want to be a dick.”
“If we had our own fucking police, we’d be fucking cops,” the protester says.
In an interview with MSNBC, Black Lives Man’s Matter New Yorkers co-founder J.K. Trotter told the outlet the video was “a little bit of a mischaracterization.”
“I think it’s an honest depiction of what people do in these protests,” he told MSNBC.
“When you look at a protest and look at the things that are going on, the police are being brutalized.
We are all protesting for something different.
We don’t want our voices to be suppressed.”
The group also released a statement condemning the video.
“We don’t agree with everything that Trump says or does, but we do believe that he’s doing the right thing and that he is protecting our communities from police brutality,” the group said.
In January, President Donald Trump signed a controversial executive order that revoked protections for thousands of undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.
The order temporarily blocked immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries and halted entry to the U.S. by refugees for six months.
Critics say the move, which Trump called a “Muslim ban,” violates federal law.
The White House also issued an apology to the American people on Friday after the controversial order was announced.
“President Trump’s order was never intended to target any religion,” White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said.
The executive order sparked protests in cities across the country.
The President and his team responded by claiming the order was necessary to protect Americans.
“Every day, the President’s team is exercising their constitutional powers to protect the American People from an attack from foreign terrorists,” Spicer said in a statement.
“This order has never been about religion, it’s about keeping our country safe.
We’re still in the process of reviewing the order and will update you once we have more information.”
The Whitehouse later released a video in which Spicer claimed the order “was never meant to target anyone.”
“We have the highest standards in our country, and the President is right to have the strongest and most effective security measures in place, but he is also right to protect American lives, the safety of our country and the safety and security of all Americans,” the Whitehouse statement continued.
