It's probably too early on a Monday for this, but here goes: a Black Lives Matter activist was attacked during a Donald Trump rally in Alabama (shocker) over the weekend, prompting some obviously warranted controversy surrounding the fact that, you know, maybe Trump shouldn't continue to spew the sort of rhetoric that's somehow just as dumb as it is absolutely dangerous.

Trump, of course, most certainly responded to this controversy by apparently just quoting from the How to Be Donald Trump handbook which exclusively contains words and phrases that even fourth graders can understand, though even the most dastardly of fourth graders wouldn't be down for this nonsense:

"Maybe he should have been roughed up because it was absolutely disgusting what he was doing," Trump says at around the 11:00 mark in the brief horror film above shortly before mispronouncing Bernie Sanders as "Bernie Sandals." It's worth noting that Trump is still very much running for President of the United States, meaning he wants to reside in the White House and serve as the face of America.

Hurry back from your vacation, John Oliver.
