EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — A volunteer member of the advance team for President Donald Trump blocked a photojournalist’s camera as he tried to take a photo of a protester during a campaign rally in Indiana.

A photo taken by Associated Press photographer Evan Vucci on Thursday in Evansville shows the volunteer stretching out his hand over the lens of a news photographer’s camera after a protester disrupted Trump’s campaign event.

Trump paced on stage at the Ford Center as the protester was led out.

His campaign didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment late Thursday.

The president was in town to stump for Republican Senate candidate Mike Braun, who is looking to unseat Democratic Sen. Joe Donnelly in what is viewed as one of the nation’s most competitive Senate races.

  1. So this is your idea of a big story? The president of the United States spoke publicly and your only interested in a man blocking another man’s camera lens while he was taking a pic of a protester rather than of the President. You’re as much of a fool as the man taking the pic of the protester. People like you jus slant everything Trump does to fit your narrative. You need to get out of media and get a real job somewhere. More fake news from fake media…
