So imagine our surprise when we heard about a Black guy in a rainbow-colored ‘Gays for Trump’ shirt attacking a protestor at a Trump rally in Greensboro, North Carolina today. The violence doesn’t surprise us — there have been 20 instances of violence at Trump’s rallies since October 2015 — and we know that some gays support Trump, but considering Trump’s policies against Black and gay communities, the rabid support seems a bit misplaced.
Here’s video of the attack and the aftermath (when the attacker puts the protestor in a headlock before giving high fives to other appreciative Trumpettes in the audience).
