Violent fake video depicting Trump lookalike killing media and critics ‘shown at one of president’s resorts’

A graphically violent parody video, reportedly shown at a meeting of Donald Trump’s supporters at his Miami resort, depicted a likeness of the president shooting and stabbing his opponents and members of the news media in a church.

In the video, the US president’s critics and media members are portrayed as parishioners fleeing his gruesome rampage, The New York Times reported.

The fake Trump strikes the late Sen. John McCain in the neck, hits and stabs TV personality Rosie O’Donnell in the face, lights alight Sen. Bernie Sanders’ head and shoots or otherwise assaults people whose faces are replaced with news organisation logos.

The video, which appears to be an edited scene of the film “Kingsman: The Secret Service”, was shown last week at an American Priority conference at Mr Trump’s Doral Miami resort, the newspaper said. Mr Trump was not there. 

Alex Phillips, event organiser, told the Times the video was played as part of a “meme exhibit” and was not associated with or endorsed by the conference “in any official capacity.”
