The local CBS affiliate is reporting that “multiple fights erupted in Beverly Hills Tuesday night,” between President Donald Trump’s supporters and Antifa protesters.
The rumble happened right in front of the posh Beverly Hills Hotel. Things were fairly peaceful until Antifa torched an American flag.

Beverly Hills police were already on hand and quickly handled those who resorted to violence. Eventually the two groups were separated. According to reports, several were detained but nobody was arrested because the scuffles were minor.
“All my years, I’ve never seen that,” Trump fan Gregg Donovan relates. “I was very disappointed in both sides. I took a neutral stance. I just stood there with my sign the whole time, but the burning of the flag really hurt.”
President Trump was in the vicinity for a fundraising event. He also plans to stop by and visit Ben Carson in Los Angeles and San Diego.
The Housing and Urban Development Secretary is in the state helping to solve California’s homeless crisis, since Nancy Pelosi and the California Democrats can’t be bothered to clean up their own mess.
