At a CNN town hall event Wednesday night, Donald Trump used a racist dog whistle to refer to Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd, the Black cop who shot Ashli Babbitt, as a "thug."
Micki Witthoeft, the mother of Ashli Babbitt -- who was fatally shot while rioting after illegally breaking into the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 -- called Lt. Michael Byrd, widely regarded as a hero, "reckless" and "careless" for shooting her. The irony.
Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd speaks out for the first time about shooting Ashli Babbitt during the riot at the US Capitol on Jan 6.
