Protesters at the Iowa State Fair had to be removed by police after their demonstration got out of control on Saturday, according to reports.
They were at the event to protest Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds as they wore shirts with writing that said “Bitch Get Stuff Done” and “Be Gay Fund Abortion,” Mediaite reported.
Reynolds was interviewing DeSantis as the protesters used cowbells and whistles in an attempt to silence the GOP governors.
The Iowa governor asked the protesters to be silent and give everyone “an opportunity to hear from each and every candidate” as the pro-Republican crowd got into it with the protesters.
“You could either join the protests or leave the fairgrounds! Period,” an officer said. “You can enjoy this affair, or you can leave! We’re not going to do this!”
As the crowd cheered officers dragged one woman from the event as she shouted, “Get the f**k off of me!”
At the same event, former President Donald Trump smashed his possible Georgia prosecution, Mediaite reported separately.
“Is there any chance you take a plea deal in Georgia?” a reporter said to the former president.
“We did nothing wrong. We don’t ever take a plea deal. We don’t take plea deals. It’s a wise guy question. You’re just a wise guy,” the former president said.
“We don’t take plea deals because I did nothing wrong. It’s called election interference,” he said.
“Because these indictments are going out by Biden. Who can’t even put two sentences together. This is Joe Biden. Because he can’t win the election by himself. He can’t win the election based on votes. So what they did is they got the attorney general to do it. And then you see how stupid they acted yesterday with the appointment of the special counsel. They call it special counsel. And what a crazy thing that was. And it’s being laughed at all over the world,” he said.
“The fact is that we have a country that’s in serious trouble. We have a country that’s in major decline. I don’t mean decline, I mean major decline. And we’re going to straighten it out. This group and a lot of people just like this group. We’re going to straighten it out, and we’re going to make America great again. Wise guy,” he said.
Fulton County Prosecutor Fani Willis also hit back at Trump after a series of attacks against her.
In a leaked email, she shredded an ad that was running in the local market attacking her and advised her staff not to respond to it.
She also said that prosecutions by her and her colleagues were just “business” and not “personal,” The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
“It is my understanding that an ad was put in the Atlanta market to run between today 8/9 and 8/13 that will have derogatory and false information about me as the District Attorney of the Atlanta Judicial Circuit. Apparently a lot of money was spent to run this ad in the Atlanta market over the next 5 days. That means the ad will run quite frequently over the next 5 days,” she said.
“Each of you represents me. Especially, ADA’s who all took an oath under my name. We often remind you if you are an ADA you are my personal staff and represent me. Many of you are quite kind to me, very protective, and will become very defensive if someone attempts to attack me, the office or your colleagues. You may not comment in any way on the ad or any of the negativity that may be expressed against me, your colleagues, this office in coming days, weeks or months,” the prosecutor said.
“We have no personal feelings against those we investigate or prosecute and we should not express any. This is business, it will never be personal,” she said.
