Early Monday evening, Trump supporter and art gallery owner Jahangir Turan was walking down a street in Manhattan, New York wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat he had purchased at Trump Tower, when he was allegedly assaulted in broad daylight by a group of teens.
The national networks have been silent on this story.
While the networks were ignoring Turan’s swollen face and fractured cheekbone, local New York affiliates were covering his recounting of the assault. WNBC reported:
With a swollen face, bruises and black eye Jahangir “John” Turan — owner of the David Parker Gallery which sells art work by Andy Warhol, Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró, among other celebrated artists — says he was on his way to a meeting with a client after buying a MAGA hat when he came across a group of “kids,” who he described as being 18 to 20 years old, while walking on Canal Street toward West Broadway.
“Officials said 42-year-old Jahangir Turan told police he was on Canal Street in SoHo around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when was struck in the head from behind,” reported WABC. “Turan said he was leaving the N train wearing a MAGA hat when a group of teenagers yelled “F*** Trump[”] and attacked him.”
Turan is irate that police have yet to track down any suspects. “I felt angry after Tuesday and Wednesday, when I didn’t see them doing anything. Two days, no arrests. I think some of these cops are anti-Trump,” Turan explained.
Many on social media were pointing out the hypocrisy of the liberal media for instinctually pouncing on the alleged assault of former Empire actor Jussie Smollett by alleged Trump supporters, which turned out to a massive hoax, and their silence on this latest attack.
