Negative feeling against Trump supporters has escalated. First Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant. Now it's reached violence.
A Texas teenager was minding his own businesses when he was verbally attacked and assaulted. A man approached 16-year-old Hunter Richard and attacked him because he was wearing a Make America Great Again hat.
The incident happened at a Whataburger on Tuesday in San Antonio. It's being investigated by Texas police.
Richard said the man ripped off his “Make America Great Again” hat while he was eating at the fast-food chain. When he ripped the hat off, Richard says he took some of his hair with it. He then threw his drink in the teen's face. The whole thing was caught on video.
"I support my president and if you don’t let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off,” Richard told News 4 in San Antonio, Texas. “I just think a conversation about politics is more productive for the entire whole rather than taking my hat and yelling subjective words to me.”
The video has since gone viral. It has over two million views. The woman who posted the video, Patricia Spittler, asked for help identifying the man, who she called "scum bag of the year."
His friend was wearing a patriotic hat, and this happened! It would be nice to know who he is for someone to let him know his actions are not okay! Real tough guy... approaches a group of teenagers minding their own business just having a burger! He kept his hat, too," Spittler wrote in the now private Facebook post, according to KCEN-TV in Temple.
A police report has been filed. Richard said the assault was completely unprovoked.
The man, who worked security at a local bar, has since been fired from his job. The bar didn't name him, but they did say that they didn't support his behavior.
They wrote, "we do not condone the actions or behavior that were displayed in the cell phone video, and we never will."
One Twitter user pointed out the hypocrisy of liberals and the media. They said if this had been an Obama supporter, there would have been widespread outrage instead of radio silence from the mainstream media.
Do you think there will be more violence against conservatives? Let us know in the comments. He's just following Maxine Waters advice. Just last week she encouraged attacks on Trump supporters.
