Trump Bros Who Beat Up Homeless Hispanic Guy Going To Prison, How Is That Even Fair?
It was probably just a little boo-boo, what's the big deal?
Well fiddlesticks, what is this world coming to when two hairy, Trump-supporting assholes can't see a 58-year-old homeless Hispanic man sleeping, beat the shit out of him, break his nose, and pee on him, and THEY have to go to prison?
The Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said Scott Leader, 38, and Steven Leader, 30, pleaded guilty Monday to indictments charging them with causing bodily injury while committing a civil rights violation, assault and battery for purposes of intimidation causing bodily injury, two counts each of assault and battery and two counts each of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Suffolk Superior Court Judge Peter Krupp sentenced Scott Leader to three years in prison and Steven Leader to 2 ½ years behind bars, with both sentences followed by three years of probation. Krupp also ordered them to serve 20 hours of community service and complete a cultural diversity training program.
Well, we are glad they are going to prison, though we would have preferred a sentence of "for-fucking-ever," as opposed to a couple years.
[wonkbar]<a href="https: //wonkette.substack.com/p/trump-supporters-making-america-great-again-by-beating-homeless-hispanic-dudes"></a>[/wonkbar]We told you this story when it happened, way back yonder in August, noting that it seemed to be the first trademarked, Trump-branded (like his steaks!), Make America Great Again hate crime. We wondered how many more were to follow! One of the brothers, Scott Leader, had told the cops that "Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported." Nice guys, obviously!
To his credit (sort of, not really), at the time, Donald Trump posted on Facebook and the Tweeterspace that the "Boston incident is terrible. We need energy and passion, but we must treat each other with respect. I would never condone violence." That's nice! Trump also said this at the time:
“It would be a shame,” Mr. Trump said, before adding: “I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”
So it was just really bad that his supporters beat up that guy and pissed all over him and stuff, but his people are just so passionate, a little violence is bound to happen, but violence is bad, mmkay?
[wonkbar]<a href="https: //wonkette.substack.com/p/who-would-donald-trump-like-to-punch-in-the-face-today"></a>[/wonkbar]Except for how sometimes even Donald Trump wants to punch protesters in the face. And sometimes people actually do get punched in the face, at his rallies! And he knows even he could go make shooty-shooty in the middle of Fifth Avenue, and his supporters would be OK with it, because they're so passionate . He also understands that if his pig-fellating supporters don't get what they want at the GOP convention, they might just riot.
But don't blame Trump! He is just the messenger for all the pent-up anger festering in the dirty grundles of America's stupidest citizens, and if a few more people get assaulted, or even killed, oh well, YOLO!
