NH Man Arrested For Assaulting Teenager Wearing MAGA Hat At Polling Site
A man was arrested for an alleged assault on a 15-year-old boy and two adults at a polling site in New Hamsphire on Thursday.
Patrick Bradley, 34, allegedly slapped the minor who was wearing a MAGA hat, and was volunteering at a Trump campaign tent. Bradley was leaving the polling location inside Windham High School, and as he passed the Trump campaign tent, he slapped the teenager across the face. Then Bradly assaulted two adults who tried to intervene.
Bradley was charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct and held on a $5,000 cash bail.
Cathy Campbell, the mother of the boy, reported her son is “traumatized” but will continue to support Trump after the violent attack. She said her son was proud to wear the MAGA hat and didn’t realize people would react that way.
“My son stayed home from school on Tuesday for a doctor’s appointment and we drove by the high school to go vote. When we got there, we saw Donald Trump Jr and Kimberly Guifoyle, and my son was over the moon,” said Campbell in an interview with Fox News. “My son is the most patriotic kid you’d ever meet in your life.”
“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk and he said ‘have a nice night,’ he said it to everyone.” She went on to explain the man was “triggered,” and yelled to her son, “f-ck you” and then slapped him across the face.
“It’s scary that you can’t express without which political party you are. People need to know how much intolerance there is right now,” added Campbell.
Last week, a Florida man drove his van through a tent of Trump supporters who were helping others to register to vote. Fortunately, no one was injured.
