The media just spent two weeks repeating a lie about an actor being attacked by two men wearing MAGA hats. While they were busy with that fake news, another attack happened involving a MAGA hat, but this one was real.
Want to know why the media didn’t obsess over this for two weeks? Simple. The victim was the one wearing a MAGA hat.
CBS News in Boston reports:
Man Attacked For Wearing MAGA Hat At Falmouth Restaurant
A Falmouth woman has been charged with disorderly conduct after confronting a customer who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat at a Mexican restaurant.
Police say Rosaine Santos walked by Bryton Turner as he was eating dinner at Casa Vallarta and knocked the hat off his head. She then allegedly confronted him verbally.
He recorded some of the confrontation on his cell phone. “I’m just trying to sit here and eat a nice meal,” Turner says in the video as Santos grabbed his President Trump-inspired hat.
Police arrived and had difficulty removing Santos.
“It’s just a hat at the end of the day,” Turner told WBZ. “I don’t really understand why people can’t just express themselves anymore, everybody has to get mad.”
Here’s a video report:
Once the police got involved, she got so out of control that she refused to get into the police car.
The Cape Cod Times reported:
Police Charge Falmouth Woman With Assaulting Man Wearing ‘MAGA’ Hat
Falmouth Police are charging an East Falmouth woman with allegedly attacking a man who was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
According to court documents, Rosaine Santos, 41, is accused of first verbally assaulting the man, then hitting him on the head.
The MAGA hats are commonly associated with President Donald Trump.
The alleged incident happened inside the Casa Vallarta Mexican restaurant last Friday night.
The police report filed in Falmouth District Court indicates that when officers asked why she was bothering the man, she said he should not be allowed to eat in a Mexican restaurant.
“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,” according the report filed by Falmouth Police Officer Newton Cardoso.
The young man in this situation handled it so well by remaining calm. What if he hadn’t? This story could have ended very differently.
