“The D.C. police failed me today,” says a conservative attorney forced to walk through a gauntlet of BLM/Antifa protesters after police blocked the shortest pathway to his hotel. The incident happened after the Million MAGA March on Saturday as anti-Trump activists attacked multiple conservatives leaving the event.
A video tweeted by Daily Caller field reporter Jorge Ventura shows a man who later identified himself as Christopher Horne and two other conservatives approaching a line of D.C. Metro police officers blocking people from entering BLM Plaza near the White House. The trio pleaded with officers to be allowed to proceed to their hotel via the shortest distance having already been hassled by BLM protesters, Horne said in a tweet.
The officers reject their appeal to steer clear of the chanting BLM protesters — many of whom were standing close by, Horne said.
