Infowars crashes commi protest — Cleveland, OH, United States
Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams met with protesters in Public Square on Tuesday.
He asked anarchists, who are roaming about the city wearing all black and masks, to stop scaring citizens and convention-goers, the Washington Post reported.
“If you are a member of a group, and you have to hide your face — if you have a cause that you have to cover your identity — then you probably need a different cause,” Williams said.
As many as a dozen members of the California delegation to the RNC have been sidelined with norovirus, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing an email that advised delegates not to shake hands with others and to avoid using communal shuttles between their hotel and the convention if they are showing symptoms.
Norovirus symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, stomach pain, fever, headache and body aches. The disease, nicknamed the cruise ship virus, is also extremely contagious.
The California delegation has more than 550 members.
Speaking before an audience at the American Conservative Union Foundation on Tuesday, Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence said, “to be around our nominee, as I had the privilege to be, not only [on] the campaign trail, but out among his associates, people that he’s employed for years, and among his family.”
Pence added, “I have a sense of this man. I have a sense of his heart. I have a sense of his hands-on style of leadership, and for all the world, he reminds me of Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan achieved great things in his life and his career, a movie star, a celebrity, governor of the great state of California, but he never lost the common touch, did he?”
Pence went on to recount the time he met the 40th president of the United States, Ronald Reagan at the White House, and said, “I felt like I was talking to Mount Rushmore.”
A bullet was found inside a charter bus transporting law enforcement officers working security at the RNC overnight, a spokesman at Case Western Reserve University told WKYC. Police are staying at the Cleveland university during the convention. No one was injured and the bullet was recovered.
