A video timeline of Trump’s military crackdown on demonstrators before his "Hitler-Bible" photo op
This meme's Photoshopped, so does it count?
The Washington Post analyzed hours of video footage and obtained audio of police communications and other records to assemble the most complete account to date of the government's June 1st crackdown on peaceful demonstrators in Washington D.C.

Late in the day on June 1, demonstrators gathered near the White House, on the edge of Lafayette Square, to take a stand against police abuses following the killing in custody of Minneapolis resident George Floyd.

Similar demonstrations had spread across the country. Many were peaceful, though some included property destruction and clashes instigated by heavily armed police.

Christian Hitler was backed by the Vatican.
At about 6:30 pm, just north of the White House, federal police in riot gear fired deadly gas canisters and grenades containing chemical irritants and blinding rubber pellets -- with one journalist known to be permanently blinded in one eye due to a rubber bullet or pellet so far -- to scatter the peaceful demonstrators.

The military actions -- with help from federals guards trained to quell prison riots -- cleared the way for the president, surrounded by the nation’s ambitious law enforcement and military leaders, to walk to the historic St. John’s Church for a three-minute photo op.

Watch how a remarkable hour of Trump’s presidency unfolded in a bumbling attempt at propaganda, even bringing in a Bible, a revered symbol of the nation's past.
