This is the type of thing that can happen when hoaxes like Jussie Smollett and Covington Catholic are perpetrated.
Real people who support President Donald Trump can be accosted or worse because people believe we are evil.
That is what happened at Sam’s Club in Bowling Green, Kentucky when a couple wearing a MAGA hat was threatened with a gun, WKNY reported.
A Tennessee man is charged with first-degree wanton endangerment after witnesses told police he pulled a gun on a man who was wearing Make America Great Again hat inside Sam’s Club.
The hat is associated with President Donald Trump’s campaign for office.
James Phillips, 57, of Cottontown, Tenn., is accused of pulling a gun on the man inside the store Saturday after making an obscene gesture with his finger, according to his arrest citation.
Phillips, who was wearing a veterans cap, told police he made the gesture at the man and a woman with him because of the MAGA hats they were wearing, according to his citation. The man then confronted Phillips inside the store and an argument began.
That man then made the same obscene gesture to Phillips, according to the citation. At that point, witnesses told police Phillips pointed a gun at the man. That portion of the incident could not be seen on video surveillance.
Police encountered Phillips and the couple after being called to the Sam’s Club parking lot where multiple witnesses had called the police to report a man pulling a gun on a couple, according to his citation.
Phillips pointed a gun at them and told the woman that “it’s a good day to die b**ch.”
The man was carrying a .40 caliber with a bullet in the chamber the reports said and he had two extra magazines with him.
