He might be lying. Trump is a pathological liar, so.... it has to be considered as a possibility. Unless there's video of it, I wouldn't believe it.

Verify, verify.

No one should be beat up because of their hat or their opinion. Period. Either side.

This is troublesome that some people think this way.

Yes, freedom of speech can have consequences. And as long as the consequences are legal, I have no problem with that. You wont find me crying foul.

When you start telling people that freedom of speech should be expected to bring on illegal consequences, like assault or vandalism, that is barbaric.

People SHOULD “cry foul” when others commit illegal acts against them. And the rest of us should too, whether it is a person being beat up for wearing a MAGA hat, or a person beat up for being gay.

If you think it is okay for people to smash in car windows over politics, then you and I live in completely different worlds.

Oh please, where did I ever say I thought it was okay? Where have I ever advocated for violence against anyone?

I am talking about the real world here, not the fantasy world where Donald Trump is not a racist, that he is a brilliant businessman and is doing a great job as President. That is all as much a fantasy as me being able to don a white robe and white hood and walk down to the projects and say "Hey, its my freedom of speech!" and not expect to get the **** kicked out of me.

As soon as you say Trump is racist, you loose all credibility. Your example is garbage.

Why would labeling Trump a racist make someone lose credibility. At worst, that is a difference of opinion, at best, you are being naive and simply unwilling to label him one because he doesnt pass your arbitrary test of "racist"

I think someone of you define racist as having to say point blank you hate other races, and that just doesnt happen in 2019. Even most racist arent that stupid.
