Hunter Richard, 16, was wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat in a San Antonio hamburger restaurant Tuesday night when a man snatched the hat off his head and threw a drink in his face. Video of the incident went viral and the man, identified by police as Kino Jimenez, was arrested Thursday, Megan Fox at PJMedia reports:
In recent days open hostility, including violence and denial of service to Trump supporters, has put the country on edge. Congresswoman Maxine Waters made headlines by appearing to condone protesters assaulting Trump supporters wherever they may be.
Waters said to a crowd, “No peace no sleep! If you see anybody from [President Trump’s] cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them! And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!”
It didn’t take long for #Resistance supporters to apply those words to average Trump supporters, just as predicted. Not even minors are safe from the left’s unending rage. Unfortunately for the man who attacked a teen, he committed a crime and now he will have to face the consequences.
This is a public-relations disaster for Democrats. Incited by CNN’s 24/7 propaganda against Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy of strictly enforcing U.S. immigration laws, Democrats believed they had a winning issue, but polls indicate Trump’s policy is widely popular with voters:Civil discourse has all but broken down in the US, thanks to such defenders of free speech such as Maxine Waters. A brave man, Kino Jimenez is 30 while the victim, Hunter Richard, is only 16.
The new survey is a Harvard-Harris Poll, by former Clinton pollster and strategist Mark Penn. It was conducted in late June with 1,448 registered voters.Even when poll respondents were prompted to consider the “family separation” issue, Trump’s zero-tolerance policy still won by a 22-point margin over the Democrats’ open-border position.
On the issue of separations, Penn began with a threshold question: “Do you think that people who make it across our border illegally should be allowed to stay in the country or sent home? Sixty-four percent said they should be sent home. Thirty-six percent said they should be allowed to stay.
Then Penn asked: “Do you think that parents with children who make it across our border illegally should be allowed to stay in the country or sent home?” The presence of children made little difference in the result: 61 percent said they should be sent home, while 39 percent said they should be allowed to stay.

The search for a suspect led San Antonio detectives from a robbery unit task force to Jimenez. If convicted, he faces a minimum sentence of 180 days in jail and a maximum sentence of two years.Even the Green Party thought that adults assaulting teenagers was a bit overmuch: Kino Jimenez Kicked Out of Green Party After MAGA Video
. . .
A manager of a San Antonio-area bar called Rumble identified Jimenez as a former part-time employee. Management fired him shortly after seeing the video.
Richard told WOAI that Jimenez pulled out some of his hair when the cap was ripped off.
"I support my President and if you don’t, let’s have a conversation about it instead of ripping my hat off," Richard told the local news crew.
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday night that he plans to get Richard a new MAGA hat, signed by "#potus!!!"
Regrets, he has a few:
Waters has not released a statement about the assault, nor has she responded to any of the social media backlash following the July 4 incident.
You want more Trump? This is how you get more Trump.
