Another MAGA hat attack… So an 81 yr old guy gets harassed by some “tough guy” for wearing a hat? This needs to stop and people need to step up when they see it and help out. I sure hope someone did.
This cowardly act needs to be punished. President Trump’s supporters are harassed, physically assaulted, stalked, verbally abused, and threatened almost on a daily basis and there is a virtual MSM blackout on all the violence.

My 93-year-old grandpa is a huge Trump supporter and spends half the year in NJ. He loves wearing hats and won’t go outside without one. Can’t get him a MAGA one though.https://t.co/WR6UPUUaiB
