Video of woman, apparently protesting Trump, getting punched sparks outrage

BERKELEY, Calif. (CBS NEWS) — In the wake of Saturday’s protest violence in Berkeley, videos and photos of the brawls that broke out have been circulating online, CBS San Francisco reported.

One clip, in particular, is sparking outrage at a known white supremacist, a student at California State University, Stanislaus.

Of all the fist-fights, explosions and bloody brawls that broke out at Saturday’s so-called “Patriots Day” protest in downtown Berkeley, one moment stood out.

In a video posted to social media, a young woman — apparently protesting President Trump — is seen being sucker-punched.

A reverse-angle picture shows her own fist extended as well. The video and image have gone viral — not least because the man throwing the punch is Nathan Damigo, founder of the white supremacist organization known as “Identity Europa.”
