Far-Left Protesters Place Trump Effigy in Guillotine - WATCH
Incident took place during Trump’s Republican National Convention speech
Unhinged far-left protesters placed an effigy of President Donald Trump under a mock guillotine outside the White House on Thursday.
The protest took place during Trump’s Republican National Convention speech, which was delivered on the White House South Lawn.
Trump's address followed a four-night convention that featured various Republican leaders.
A piece of paper placed on the effigy wrote:
“Ticket – Fascist, Rapist, Criminal."
Later, kneeling protesters took pictures with another Trump effigy.

Protesters also threw water on the man before sucker punching him, knocking him to the ground, one video posted by Daily Caller journalist Phillip Nieto and Townhall journalist Julio Rosas showed.
Another protest is expected to take place in Washington D.C. on Friday, which is organized by civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN)
The protest is titled the “Commitment March: Get Your Knee Off Our Necks,” a reference to George Floyd, who died in Minneapolis police custody.
NAN’s description of the protest read:
“This inter-generational inclusive day of action will demonstrate our advocacy for comprehensive police accountability reform, the Census, and mobilizing voters for the November elections."
