A man trying to enjoy his meal in a Massachusetts’ Mexican restaurant was assaulted because he was wearing a pro-Trump “Make America Great Again” hat. A woman has been charged with assault and battery after knocking the man’s hat off his head.
The alleged assailant, 41-year-old Rosaine Santos, told police she did it because the man was a “motherf****r” for supporting Donald Trump. The police report also indicates that she demanded the man be barred from eating in the restaurant.

“I’m just trying to sit here and eat a nice meal”
The man who was attacked, Bryton Turner, posted videos of the incident on Facebook.
Turner originally wasn’t going to press charges – until she assaulted him again! Right in front of the police who had arrived.
“This is the problem – ignorant people like this. I’m just trying to sit here and eat a nice meal,” Turner says in one video.
Bryton posted to Facebook about the one-sided altercation.
Went out with some friends trying to enjoy some dinner and drinks when this ignoramus randomly tried to hit my hat off and started yelling at me (assault + drunk and disorderly). I wasn’t going to press charges but in front of four cops she did it again so now she’s going to jail.?♂️
* the woman next to her was not her friend. she was very nice just wrong place wrong time*
More from The Political Insider
Drunk and disorderly
The report filed by Falmouth Police states, “I asked Rosaine why she was behaving badly in the manner and she stated that Bryton was a (expletive) for supporting Trump. She also stated that he shouldn’t be allowed in a Mexican restaurant with that hat.”
Reporter for Boston’s NBC 10 Perry Russom said, “police say Santos smelled of alcohol. Her eyes were bloodshot and glassy. Her speech was slurred. She continued to raise her voice and yell profanities.’”
Santos had to be carried out of the restaurant by police. When she arrived at the police station, she reportedly refused to get out of the police cruiser. “When she got out, she fell to the ground and officers had to remove her high heels so she could walk,” Russom reports. Santos continued to hurl obscenities at the officers while being booked.
Anti-Trump “Hate Crimes?”
The Political Insider reported Thursday:
“Recruiters, standing in front of a table with the factually correct sign stating “hate crime hoaxes hurt real victims,” were approached by detractors on several occasions throughout the day at the University of California, Berkeley.
But one individual violently crossed the line when he threatened to shoot one of the conservative students, knocked his phone out of his hand, and delivered a punch to the head.
The victim offered no resistance other than an attempt to protect his personal belongings. At one point you can hear someone, perhaps the victim, try to placate the assailant by saying “You won this fight.”
But the violent leftist punched him anyway.
You will find these stories on conservative sites, but they continue to go unreported by the overwhelming majority of mainstream national media.
Imagine if it had been a man in a MAGA hat harassing restaurant customers? Imagine if it had been a Trump supporter punching people on campus? There would be wall-to-wall “hate crime” coverage.
Why is it not a hate crime when a MAGA hat wearer is attacked?

But when Trump supporters are the victims, no one seems to care.
Do journalists really still wonder why so many consider them pushers of “fake news?” Do they get why they no longer have any credibility at all?
