A video of Trump supporters being confronted for allegedly calling a 5-year-old Palestinian-American girl a “terrorist” is quickly going viral.
The video shows three Trump supporters, one man and two women, being confronted by a Palestinian-American woman, teenage boy and young girl on a street in California.
“You called my 5-year-old cousin a terrorist,” the Palestinian-American woman, Rawan, says.
“Looks like one,” the man, who has been identified as Johnny Turano, responds in the video. “It doesn’t matter what age you are.”
“You’re calling a 5-year-old a terrorist,” Rawan remarks.
“But this is America, we can say whatever we want,” interjects Turano’s daughter, Bianca. “Freedom of speech.”
Rawan, who recorded the incident, told Raw Story the confrontation occurred in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Bianca can be seen taking her own video in Rawan’s recording — and that video was soon uncovered and shared online.

“You guys are terrorists, get out of here,” Bianca can be heard saying, as Johnny tells them to suck his dick.
“If you hate America so much leave,” Bianca tells them.
“I don’t hate America — I just hate [inaudible] f*cks like you,” the boy yells back.
Bianca’s video also shows the Trump supporters accosting other passersby. “You can suck my dick!” Johnny yells.
Johnny, who goes by the nickname “Based Spartan,” told the Vanguard earlier this year that he regretted becoming involved in the so-called “alt right” movement after he began noticing his comrades were brandishing swastikas.
Trump’s latest national security adviser is undercutting FBI Director Wray to quash report of new Russian meddling: report
In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, historian David Rothkopf accused Donald Trump's latest national security director, Robert O'Brien, of undercutting the United States intelligence services and uses his comments about recent reports of new Russian election meddling to make the case that he is contradicting FBI Director Christopher Wray to please the president.
According to Rothkopf, "For just over a century, since America arrived as a major force on the global stage, we have feared that should our enemies defeat us, it would be on the battlefield or via a devastating nuclear onslaught. We never could have imagined that an enemy might take another approach altogether: infecting us with a presidential virus who this week gutted our national security leadership structures like a fish."
Decoding the Christian paradox: Evangelical historian explains how right-wingers ignore Jesus to support a corrupt and greedy president
To quote the bumper sticker: "What would Jesus do?"
Assuming that he existed and held the views imputed to him, Jesus Christ would not support Donald Trump.
Donald Trump's behavior, values, policies and their consequences are the opposite of what Jesus Christ represented. Trump has put migrants and refugees in cages and delighted in their suffering. He feels contempt for the poor, the sick, the vulnerable and the needy. He has lied at least 16,000 times. He is corrupt and wildly greedy.
