What could happen is so much worse, apparently.
In Nashville Daniel Sprague was out on the town with friends celebrating his birthday. Outside of an establishment he was grabbed from behind and sucker-punched by a woman. She was enraged that he was wearing a red baseball hat, believing it to be the recognizable pro-Trump item, except her anger seems displaced. The hat was given to Sprague for the occasion, reading ‘’Make Fifty Great Again’’.
The familiar storyline of people believing the mere presence headgear justifies violent outbursts was once again in play, but it was only one instance of a recent spate of seemingly partisan attacks. This weekend in Jacksonville Florida a man drove his into a portable gazebo set up in a store parking lot by Trump supporters for voter registration and outreach. The driver freely admitted he intentionally targeted the group and even expressed disappointment that his attempt to record the incident on video had failed.
