Gay man attacked by Trump fan who warned ‘my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now’

A gay Florida man said he was stalked and attacked by a man who claimed he was inspired by Donald Trump’s election.

Chuck Redding noticed an SUV tailing him after dropping off a friend, but he realized something was wrong when the dark-colored Jeep Cherokee crept closer as he turned onto his street in Sarasota, reported WFTS-TV.

The 75-year-old, who thinks he was targeted because of the pro-LGBT bumpers stickers on his car, parked in front of a neighbor’s house — and that’s when the other driver confronted him.

The man, who he described as a Hispanic man with a beard, started banging on Redding’s car window and then attacked him.

“He yanked the door open, dragged me out, ripped my shirt — I was on the pavement,” Redding said.

Redding suffered cuts, bruises and abrasions in the attack, which the assailant linked to Trump’s election.

“He kept saying, ‘You know, my new president says we can kill all you f*ggots now,'” Redding said.

Redding said he’s never been harassed or attacked for being openly gay, but he and some friends have decided to obtain concealed carry permits as protection.

OK, Democrats — you’ve had your fun. You grew up being told that everybody could run for president, and then everybody did. Except that this mad anthill scramble of presidential candidates, which resembles a bunch of kindergarteners descending on not enough cookies, really hasn’t been fun so far. All you’ve managed to do is put the fear of God — or the fear of the other guy, more like — into the voters, provoking widespread PTSD flashbacks to November 2016.

‘Be ashamed’: Anthony Scaramucci’s wife deletes tweet after Soledad O’Brien opens a can of whoop ass on her

Soledad O'Brien

Soledad O'Brien, a former CNN anchor, clashed with the wife of Trump surrogate Anthony Scaramucci over the weekend.

In a tweet on Friday, O'Brien complained that cable new networks were continuing to book the former White house communications director even though he has little of substance to add to the discussions.

"Why do you guys put this crap on tv?" O'Brien wrote after seeing an interview with Scaramucci. "Seriously it’s an insult to your viewers. And also absurd. Is there no one else in the whole world to book but this mediocre dude?"

Scaramucci's wife, Deidre, was moved to criticize O'Brien.
