Was the Governor of Nevada assaulted by security officers who didn’t recognise him, because he’s a black man?
Take a look at the shocking video, and find out what the FACTS really are!
Claim : Nevada Governor Was Assaulted Because He’s A Black Man!
These messages have gone viral on WhatsApp, together with a video showing security officers wrestling a man to the ground, almost taking down a metal detector in the process.
In the video, you can hear the man recording the video shouting, “That’s your Lieutenant Governor! What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing? That’s your Lieutenant Governor!”
The man then continues, “You guys are gone! You guys are gone!“…

Truth : Nevada Governor / Lt. Governor Was NOT Assaulted At All!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS being shared on WhatsApp, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : That’s Not Nevada Governor Or Lieutenant Governor
The man in the video is neither the Governor of Nevada, nor its Lieutenant Governor.
The current Governor of Nevada is Steve Sisolak, while the Lieutenant Governor of Nevada is Kate Marshall.
They are both Caucasians, and from the Democratic Party.
Fact #2 : Man Wrestled To The Ground Is Mack Miller
The man who was filmed being wrestled to the ground is Mack Miller, a convicted US Army deserter and a Republican who is running to replace Kate Marshall as Lieutenant Governor of Nevada.
Irrespective of what the man on the video was shouting, he has NOT been elected Lieutenant Governor of Nevada. He is merely one of several people running for the job.
It was not that the security officers did not recognise him. He was simply not an elected Nevada official.
Fact #3 : Mack Miller Was Removed For Being Disruptive
The video was recorded at the Clark County Commission Office’s meeting, where the committee voted in a 5-2 decision to declare the spread of COVID-19 misinformation “a public health crisis”.
Protestors at the meeting claimed that the decision violated their First Amendment rights, and Miller was ejected after apparently joining the protest which broke out into a fight between demonstrators and the security officers.
Being an African American was not the reason why he was forcibly removed. It should be noted that one of the two security officers carrying him out is African American.
Fact #4 : It Was An Accident
The claim of assault is not legitimate. The video clearly shows Mack Miller jumping backwards as the two security officers forced him out.
When the two security officers hit the metal detector, it almost fell. That’s when Miller fell backwards – when the two security guards lost their grip on him, as they tried to hold the metal detector up.
It was not assault. It was merely an accident.
