That means that the “protestors” or disrupters and anybody who sponsored them or supported them are to blame just like the one brother who hit his other brother is to blame. The question here is, does the brother who kept teasing, irritating, threatening, and calling the other brother names have any responsibility for the confrontation. Trump’s people say no.
Trump's national spokesperson, Katrina Pierson says the liberal media is desperate to blame the Republican presidential front-runner for the violence that has plagued his recent campaigning — as are his fellow presidential candidates — and it's "absolutely disgusting."
"It's the media that's driving the narrative that Donald Trump is a bully or is racist. They're the ones that are pushing it and only Donald Trump is strong enough and his team, for that matter, to fight back against the media."
She said Chicago, where a Trump rally had to be called off for fear of mass violence, "is home base for this kind of nonsense."
"These protesters are violent, some of them are anarchists, a lot of them are Bernie Sanders supporters, but the media just brushes right over that. They want to put the entire blame and even Republicans have joined in at putting the blame on Mr. Trump," Pierson said.
Here is a quick overview of some of the key violent incidents, along with Trump’s responses:

March 9, 2016: (Fayetteville, North Carolina) A protester in the custody of local law enforcement is sucker-punched by an event attendee while being led out of the arena.

Both brothers bear responsibility for the confrontation; the one that swung as well as the one who acted like a childish bully as opposed to a responsible adult. What makes the matter even more alarming is the one who played the role of the childish bully is striving to be our leader. We have learned that even with documented evidence, he is not a big enough person to admit he does have some responsibility. This should not be surprising since he is the same person who said he has never asked for forgiveness because he has never done anything that required forgiveness.
When I look at this situation objectively, I hear alarm bells named Sam Adams, Nathan Hale, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington clanging loudly, saying please heed these warnings.
