Trump supporter ‘heartbroken’ after neighbor calls him out for backing ‘racist groper’

Published

An Oklahoma man said he’s “heartbroken” that a neighbor called him out for supporting bigotry by backing President Donald Trump.

Morgan Casper started finding anti-Trump messages pinned to a pumpkin earlier this month on his front porch, so he set up a security camera to find out who was leaving the notes, reported KOTV-TV.

“Real men don’t grope,” read one small sign.

Another message suggested Trump supporters were complicit in the president’s hateful attacks on some Americans.

“Not all Trump supporters are overtly racist, or ableist, or misogynist,” the note read. “But every one of them decided hating people with brown skin or disabilities or women wasn’t a deal breaker. Own that decision.”

That hurt Casper’s feelings.

“I was very heartbroken because it’s not who I am,” Casper said. “I’m not a racist. I look at everyone as equal. I mean, my wife is an Indian, I’m white.”

The Tulsa man caught the woman on camera placing the messages on his porch, and he hoped to confront her.

“It just breaks my heart that someone thinks that way of someone else that they don’t even know,” Casper told KJRH-TV.

He spotted her earlier this week while driving through his midtown neighborhood, and he pulled over and asked the woman about her signs — while he recorded the encounter on video.

The woman at first denied placing the messages on his porch, but Casper said he had video evidence, and he tried to explain that he wasn’t a hateful person despite backing Trump.

“I’m sorry if I come across as that, you don’t know who I am,” Casper said, and the woman agreed. “It makes me sad that you judge me that way, because it just breaks my heart.”

The woman seemed to lose interest as Casper explained his political views, but he called her back to his car.

“There are things about Trump I don’t like,” Casper said. “I don’t like that he goes on Twitter and says stuff very openly, I don’t like some of the stuff he did in history.”

The woman then asked why he’d elect a man like that to lead the country, but Casper changed the subject to Bill Clinton.

“He’s a moron, all you have to do is listen to him talk,” the woman said. “He has a vocabulary the size of a second-grader’s. He’s an evil piece of crap, and I’m scared. That’s the only reason I would have done those things. I didn’t key your truck or anything like that, I just wanted someone to tell these complacent ass wipes that they really screwed up — and that’s what I thought you were.”

Casper granted her opinion but reminded her she didn’t know him, but she pointed out he advertised his support for Trump with signs and bumper stickers.

“You said I was advertising that, like it’s a bad thing,” he said. “That’s why America is America.”

He said his support for Trump was no different than someone supporting Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, and the woman explained her personal stake in politics.

“I just went on disability this last year,” she said. “I live on a thousand dollars a month, and Trump is threatening that. It’s not about their personalities or silly things they say — it’s life and death.”

Published

on

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" on Friday that he was ending his campaign for the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

There may have been more to the timing than previously reported.

"Federal election officials asked Mayor de Blasio for more information about his presidential campaign fundraising after he used a state political action committee to pay for expenses related to the bid – seemingly against the law," the New York Daily News reported Friday. "The Federal Election Commission demanded that de Blasio 2020 clarify a debt the campaign owed his NY Fairness PAC in a letter Thursday – the day before Hizzoner dropped out of the race."

Published

President Donald Trump's White House counsel has reportedly been personally involved in keeping Congress from reviewing a whistleblowing report involving Ukraine.

"The revelation that Trump pushed Zelensky to pursue the Biden probe, which was first reported by The Wall Street Journal, represents the most detailed account so far of the president’s conduct that prompted a U.S. intelligence official to file a whistleblower action against the president," The Washington Post reported Friday. "The disclosure comes amid new details about the White House’s role in preventing Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire from complying with Congressional demands for the material in the complaint."

Watch Ex-CIA official break down the ‘three crimes’ Trump committed if Ukraine scandal is true

Published

on

President Donald Trump could be charged with committing three federal crimes if the whistleblower reports involving the White House seeking campaign interference from Ukraine are correct.

MSNBC "Deadline: White House" anchor Nicolle Wallace interviewed Jeremy Bash on Friday -- and worried about the safety of the whistleblower.

"The stakes could not be any higher, the risk to his career -- or her career -- and reputation and perhaps legal standing could not be any higher for this whistleblower. That's why we’re glad to be joined by national security analyst, former chief of staff of the CIA and Department of Defense, someone I wanted to talk to about this story all week, Jeremy Bash," Wallace said.
