1. NEW: A video depicting a macabre scene of a fake President Trump shooting, stabbing & brutally assaulting members of the news media & his political opponents was shown at a conference for his supporters at his Miami resort

@maggieNYT @nytmike scoop  https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/13/us/politics/trump-video.html 

2. "He strikes the late Arizona senator John McCain in the back of the neck. He hits the television personality Rosie O’Donnell in the face and then stabs her in the head. He strikes Rep Maxine Waters. He lights the head of Senator Bernie Sanders on fire"

3. "He takes Senator Mitt Romney, Republican of Utah, hostage before throwing him to the ground. Then he strikes former President Barack Obama in the back and throws him against a wall."


4. "The clip ends with Mr. Trump putting a stake into the head of a person with a CNN logo for a face. Mr. Trump then stands on the altar, admiring his rampage, and smiles."


5. As much as I hate to post this, given how much people are talking about this story, and that it involves the president's club, his supporters, and an organization that supports him, here's the video in question:

6. Mrs. McCain weighs in on the video

7. White House weighs in on the video.

8. @MeghanMcCain on the video:

"You conservatives on Twitter, if this was the opposite and it happened at an Obama event, you'd be screaming bloody murder."
