The 75-year-old peace activist who Buffalo police shoved to the ground, causing him to bleed from his ear, wasn't just a "provocateur" — he was also a sophisticated hacker who attempted to "black out" police communications!

At least, that's the word from the President of the United States on Tuesday. Donald Trump boosted yet another insane conspiracy theory from the depths of the anonymous right-wing internet.

In a tweet, Trump claimed activist Martin Gugino was "aiming" a "scanner" at police at the time he was pushed on Saturday (Gugino appeared to be holding a cell phone) and that the elderly man "fell harder than was pushed."
