By The Daily Wire. . .According to KABC News, Rodolfo Rodriguez passed a woman who looked upset while walking down the street. “The woman pushed him and dropped him. She took the block of concrete and hit him in his head many times,” said one witness. Several other men joined in and helped beat Rodriguez, too, “at times using what appeared to be a brick or a piece of concrete,” the witness added.
The heartbreaking story instantly went viral, and leftists were quick to blame President Donald Trump for the attack. In one glaring example, leading leftist activist and president of The New Agenda Amy Siskind boldly stated that the unidentified assailant was a “white mother,” adding that the attack was a direct result of the man in the White House. “This is Donald Trump,” she declared.
“A white mother beat a 92-year-old Hispanic man with a brick in the face on Independence Day,” she wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “He has legitimized the worst of us: ‘Go back to your country, why are you here, bad things.’ F*** racist [White House advisor] Stephen Miller and his $80 sushi.”
But Siskind’s crafted and politically-motivated narrative is false. It turns out that the suspect is a 30-year-old black woman identified by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as Laquisha Jones. Not a “white mother.”
Curiously, Siskind deleted her tweet without explanation. The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra asked the activist about the deletion, but did not receive an answer. He was, however, blocked by Siskind in roughly seven minutes time.

Arrest Made in Beating of 91 Year Old Who Reportedly Was Told to ‘Go Back to Mexico’
By CNN Wire. A week after a 91-year-old Mexican man says he was beaten with a concrete block in Southern California, a woman has been arrested in connection with the assault, authorities said.
Laquisha Jones, 30, was arrested Tuesday night in Los Angeles on suspicion of beating Rodolfo Rodriguez last week, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
She was being held on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, with bail set at $200,000.
The 91 year old was discharged from the hospital so he could recover at home. That’s where he spoke to reporters about being attacked by a group of people while going for a walk on the Fourth of July.
“I can’t walk anymore,” Rodriguez said in Spanish. “I’m in so much pain.” (Read more from “Arrest Made in Beating of 91 Year Old Who Reportedly Was Told to ‘Go Back to Mexico’” HERE)
