Keith Giles, a friend of Martin Gugino -- the 75-year-old Buffalo man who was pushed down by police -- said he was "horrified" by President Donald Trump's tweet claiming that Gugino could be an "ANTIFA provocateur."
Gugino fell backwards and was hospitalized following the incident.
Giles described Gugino, who he said he's known for the past 13 years, as a very kind and funny person -- and one not technically savvy enough to use his phone to "scan police communications in order to black out the equipment," as Trump said in his tweet.
"I promise you, he does not know how to turn his cell phone into some sort of high tech James Bond device," Giles said.
Trump's tweet cited a segment from a television report on a network that is openly pro-Trump and whose journalists don't exactly live up to credo of being neutral and independent.
The person who did this segment on Gugino is named Kristian Brunovich Rouz, a man who, according to the Daily Beast, has worked both for OAN and Sputnik, a Russian government-controlled news wire service. (The intelligence community concluded that Sputnik played a role in the Russian meddling in the 2016 election.)
