The organizer of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Matt Schlapp claims he went undercover at a Black Lives Matter protest in Washington D.C on May 31st with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, following the murder of George Floyd, the Daily Beast reports.
On stage at CPAC Friday, Schlapp claims he was in Virginia with Ingraham and her family watching in “shock” at what was going on in the capital. He recalled Ingraham saying to him “let’s go down and see this” as protesters gathered near the White House.
According to Schlapp, they got dressed up in “camouflage gear with mask and hats” and “football gear.”
“But my problem was that I had tassel loafers on,” Schlapp said. “So I got all ready and my daughters look at me and said, ‘dad you’re so gonna get hit look at your shoes.”
Schlapp did not get hit, but he describes the scene as something from a dystopian fantasy.
“All you could smell was drugs,” he declared. “There were no cops. It was complete pandemonium. It was like a scene from a movie, you know, Escape From New York or one of these end of the world things.”
He said he witnessed protesters spray painting and starting multiple fires. Schlapp also claimed some protesters almost “breached the 18 acres of the White House” and “dozens and dozens and dozens of cops and Secret Service agents were seriously injured.”
“You’ll never read and hear that,” he declared.
Trump was taken to an underground bunker at the White House during the protests.
