@Trump @EricTrump @MariaBartiromo @FoxNews Nice haircut, Eric. What did you ask for, the Richard Spencer?

Spencer is credited with coming up with the term alt-right, the name for the far-right racist fringe movement that often subscribes to anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic and anti-feminist ideologies. Spencer was punched in the face during a live interview at President Trump's inauguration last January, a moment that immediately went viral.
