Woman posts brief video: 'Covington Catholic boys harrassed my friends and I'

'All we specifically heard was "MAGA", "Build the Wall", and some people say they hear "sl**" at the end of the video.'

A Connecticut woman on Twitter has posted a brief 8-second video citing harassment from members of the Covington Catholic High School group in Washington D.C. that took place before the incident involving Nathan Phillips.

In the tweet, Twitter account holder @roflinds states: "The Covington Catholic boys harrassed (sic) my friends and I before the incident with Nathan Phillips even happened. I'm tired of reading things saying they were provoked by anyone else other than their own egos and ignorance."

In the brief video, the MAGA and Trump 2020 hats are visible, but faces of the boys are not clear.

She continued in the thread of tweets:

"This video is short because we walked by and were surprised to be yelled at. I took my phone out to send it to my friends back home for a laugh. I simply could not ignore the media saying they were provoked so I posted it."

She also states: "...for people wondering what they yelled, all we specifically heard was "MAGA", "Build the Wall", and some people say they hear "sl**" at the end of the video."

The video as of 6:45 am Tuesday had over 4 million views.

The footage came out a few hours before President Trump tweeted "Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media. Not good, but making big comeback! “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American.”

The president's tweet was posted at 9:46 pm Tuesday.

Now do POC individuals who commit crime. It doesn't necessarily reflect they're all or mostly criminals.

Damn raping 2 women and barely 18! He is already convicted and a registered sex offender for the first crime. Catholics are true evil.

Really though, this sort of savage and barbaric activity is what I expect from Catholics.

That is FAKE NEWS. CCH boys would NEVER dress in black. They take their blue seriously. Also that whatever in black is photoshopped.
