White nationalist Richard Spencer was punched in his face during the inaugural festivities for President Donald Trump today. A video shared on Twitter by Mr. Tunney shows Spencer discussing the “White lives matter” movement while he’s being harassed and heckled by onlookers.
One person calls Spencer a Nazi and Spencer corrects the person claiming that Nazis actually hate him. While Spencer was talking about the impact Pepe the Frog had during the election, an unidentified white man dressed in a black hoodie with a black cloth over his face approached Spencer and punched him in the face.
Spencer collapsed to the side and quickly ran away while fixing his hair. Claims that this occurred during the inaugural festivities are unverified, however.
