(INTELLIHUB) — Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler can’t seem to figure out why federal agents responded to over 50 days of mayhem in the city by spraying unruly protesters and even the mayor himself with tear gas.

“I can tell you with one hundred percent honesty that I saw nothing that provoked this response,” the Democrat politician said. “I am not afraid but I am pissed off.”

The mayor was captured on video with a straight face claiming that the federal response was “an egregious overreaction on the part of the federal officers.”

Wheeler went on to say that he saw nothing which warrants such a reaction.

“This is not a de-escalation strategy,” he explained. “This is flat-out urban warfare and it’s being brought on to the people of this country by the president of the United States–this is a threat to our democracy.”
