Protesters Caught on Video Tossing Water at Trump Supporter Outside Rally — and How He's Seated Makes All the Difference

“They just assaulted us!”

Amid the chaos anti-Trump protesters created outside his rally at the Albuquerque Convention Center on Tuesday — hurling rocks, jumping on police cars, lighting fires and damaging property — another disturbing altercation took place.

As a rowdy crowd lined a sidewalk protesting the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, protesters named a pathway in front of them the "walk of shame" and chanted the phrase as Trump supporters entered the rally.

The protesters also threw water at Trump supporters — and one of those supporters, Dereck Scott, was in a wheelchair.

Gabrielle Burkhart, a KRQE-TV reporter, tweeted two videos related to the incident. (Content warning: Strong language):

“They just assaulted us!” Scott yelled to police officer standing just feet from the where the water was thrown.

Later, he talked to KRQE-TV on camera.

"These people have no clue what really goes on I guess," Scott said. "They're even going to lie to themselves about what they just did to a handicapped person who has a right to rally for the other side."

Scott's interview and other footage of the incident begins just after the 1-minute mark in the below clip:
