Tea Party Trump Supporter Says Riots Aren't Necessarily Bad

Tea Party activist Scottie Nell Hughes, who is a prominent Donald Trump supporter, caught CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer off guard when she said “Riots aren’t necessarily a bad thing, [Not] if it means it's because [Trump supporters are] fighting the fact that our establishment Republican Party has gone corrupt and decided to ignore the voice of the people and ignore the process."

Blitzer was visibly stunned when he proceeded to ask her if she wanted riots to break out at the Republican convention. Hughes responded, "It's not riot as in a negative thing we've seen in the past. I know they would not resort to violence, however they would make sure their voices are heard, that they can't be ignored.” Earlier on Wednesday, Trump told CNN's Chris Cuomo, "I wouldn't lead it, but I think bad things would happen. After we win, I think a lot of feelings will be soothed." Trump was referring to the potential for riots if he did not win the Republican nomination despite having a large lead in terms of delegates.
