Caught On Tape: Aggressive Time Reporter "Choke Slammed" At Trump Rally By Secret Service

Tyler Durden's picture

Donald Trump is causing quite the ruckus in American politics.

What started as a parody campaign has now, nine months later, mushroomed into a legitimate bid for the White House. That's upsetting to the political establishment on both sides of the aisle and now, both the media and America's entrenched political establishment are struggling to come to terms with the brazen billionaire's success.

Last week, in what some view as a prelude to a fascist future for America, Trump suggested he would change libel laws in order to give himself greater scope to sue journalists who pen negative articles about him. But as you'll see from the clip shown below, he may have had a legitimate reason for his position.


Here is the start of the altercation:


The reporter, one Christopher Morris, reached for the throat of a secret service agent.

"I never touched him," Morris says, in what appears to be a lie.

Moments ago the Secret Service officially admitted that the photographer really did attack a secret service agent, who perhaps was expecting the altrecation to be with a paid Trump bodyguard, which would allow him to claim media repression.

It did not quite work out that way.


And some other angles of the altercation:

As The Hill adds, in an afternoon blog post, Time confirmed that Morris was the photographer involved and explained, step by step, what the magazine believes happened. 

"TIME has contacted the U.S. Secret Service to express concerns about the level and nature of the agent’s response. Morris has also expressed remorse for his part in escalating the confrontation," according to the post.

A spokesman said in the statement, “We are relieved that Chris is feeling OK, and we expect him to be back at work soon.”

The reporter, Perticone, published additional video on Twitter he says occurred moments before the interaction between the security guard and Morris "got physical."

The guard says to Morris, "Get in the pen." Morris is then heard to say, "F--- you."

Also shown in Perticone's second video are African-American protesters walking past the press pen chanting and shaking their fists.

WSET reporter Annie Anderson posted a third video in which she says she interviewed Morris as he was being escorted out of the Trump rally.

In the video, Morris says, "I never punched him. I never touched him. At the very end I tried to show ... the press lead what he did to me. And I said he choked me so I put my hand on him. And that's when I was arrested."

Which is odd, because it doesn't appear that Morris was actually arrested at any time during the encounter.

Chance is high, but hes the only one running with a chance of changing something.

Zirpedge's picture

He's slick, honed his stage craft on all the network TV he's been doing for the last decade. He's really got lot of people fooled. Don't pin your hopes on him, pick yourself up and move on. Nothing sadder than someone thinking government might change to help them.

SS agent for Man of the Year! 


Secret Service agent let that photographer fuck off easy.

He coulda shot him dead as a clear and present danger.

Or, called in the drones, and Hellfire missile-d his car when photo boy got in to leave afterwards.

It's what's for dinner in the rest of the world.

Lastly, The Donald had fuck all to do with it, you morons.

“fascist future for America,?  ???

I am way more concerned the fascist past and present in Amerika.

What part of Clinton’s, Bush’s, and Obama’s 1400 military bases and totalitarian massive offense budget and the militarization of  domestic police do people not understand  ????

You see that reporter?  You can tell he's a liberal by his physical build / haircut / body attitude.  

He's the type you just want to hit from T=0.

Manthong's picture

a)    I would never be in a crowd like that.. leave it to the media hustlers, plebes and sycophants.

b)    Kudos to training and the willingness/ability to go active big-time

c)    .. the good news is that the agent did not appear to be drunk driving, sex texting a yute, or engaging  a South American hooker

d)    …maybe it’s because he was around Trump instead of the incumbent.

I need more asshats's picture

Oh I forgot.

if ( Federal 'agent' )


else if state/county/municipal


I'll fix it. No worries.

Manthong's picture

..maybe you might be missing a couple of important points.

. golly gee, .I don’t want promote disagreement in fight club, but………

..the guy’s job is to protect.. the cool dude did his job and put down the disrupter without undue violence..

...unfortunately many domestic “agents” have been indoctrinated to see their jobs “to enforce”.

…peace officers have been evolving into guys that look at a list of rules first and arbitrators of the peace second.

….. I could go on, but not now.


Peace.. Love.. Tranquility.. but watch out for the high caliber stuff.


and.. and.. by all that is just and holy......

that idiot reporter could have had a .40 hollow point in his chest.

headline as seen at Yahoo --- very misleading, propaganda

Yahoo is almost as worsely biased as the radical far left NPR. If Yahoo didn't have the email thingy, no one would go there for the news except Sanders supporters and BLM peeples.

Hillary is proven Corrupt.



Manthong's picture

That “Time Journalist” needs to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for an attack on a Federal Officer.


…but that probably won't happen until Hillary is indicted for sedition, espionage and treason.

I don't get this.  Asshole in a suit smashed a guy down for nothing I could see.  And all you great libertarians applaud it?

The guy was a wimp armed with a camera.  Not quite sure the threat seen there.  Could have been easily shepherded aside.

He chest bumped and said FU to the agent. It was planned, to smear Trump.

I don't see anything wrong, that is their job. To put people in their place when they do stupid shit.

TheAntiProgressive's picture

You are absolutely right.  They started out as the business portal / search engine.  The email is good.  The fianace stuff is good but the people in charge of yahoo news are total ultra lefties.  They should kick that CEO to the curb and get someone in there and niche back into the business portal and they might start to actually build some "value".  The just have to purge all the neo-communists running the place now.

daveO's picture

Yahoo is tribal controlled. This another example of a set up. The TIME reporter was instigating the whole thing for coverage. The phonier the headline, the better. With all those cameras, they can't get away with like their staged, no video, school shootings.

TheReplacement's picture

Nah, that reporter was never at risk of being shot.  He's white. 

The violence was clearly over the top and unnecessary, assuming the reporter's hand on the agent was after the takedown.  Just getting in his way and blocking his shot would have been sufficient to penalize him a paycheck since he was no longer doing his job and getting results.

TheReplacement's picture

Downvoters remember your stance the next time you don't fully comply with an agent/officer and he smashed your face on the hood.  What comes around goes around in the police state.

daveO's picture

I would not be at all surprised if a reporter, very similar to Morris, attempts to kill Trump before November. Obviously, Trump represents a sea change to their ongoing warfare/welfare puppet scheme. 'They' even kill their own for making peace.

"..the guy’s job is to protect.. the cool dude did his job and put down the disrupter without undue violence.."


It's so easy to weed out the fucking statist morons.  They always out themselves with sycophantic stepford like loyalty to the Kings guards.  To this particular moron, inconvenient disruption = needs to be protected with violence.


I dont give a shit if it was a leftard reporter, what planet do you live on cretin where you think this same shit cant and wont be used on you at a time of the praetorian choosing?

First they came for the reporters in skinny jeans....

Grabbing the throat of a secret service agent while he is on duty should only result in a stern rebuke because they are there to be abused by assholes

Socratic Dog's picture

Why do you guys have such a hard on for uniforms?

On second thoughts, Sun, your avatar explains it.

I grew up in another country, one where uniforms were generally despised.  Very different climate to that here, I guess.  A preferable one, I'd say, when uniform represents the Empire of Chaos.

Hey AssHat up thread. This is Time Magazine,  some of the creepiest creeps in the MSM work in that sewer system. This is not about the 1st Amendment. Time, inc. could not care less about free speach. One part of the establishment, the SS, choke slams another part of the establishment. What's not to like?

I have a personal greivance with Time. My parents, in a drive to be upscale and edjudicate the children, always made sure that rag was lying around the house. I lost years of critical thinking delving into that crap. The light was always at the end of the tunnel and we were always just about to win ... until the helicopters showed up to lift the remenants off the embassy roof.

would laugh, if it weren't so tragic. I told you 6 months ago it was 1933 all over again.

What were are seeing is 70 yrs of destruction of the working class in America.

Starting with made in Japan and Volkswagen for the empire.

The miltiary guy who went into to VW in 1945 who set up the export deals name is

not known in Detroit. They don't know who destroyed them.

I love that it getting violent. It won't end with Trump.

It is the wage class seeking revenge for that horrific war that destroyed them.

It is 1933 all over again.

I know you chumps like to mock me, but you can see I am right.

Trump ain't the guy, he is in the wings.
