A pro-Trump rally outside the White House quickly devolved into an expletive-laden shouting match between the president’s supporters and a critic of the president.
On the eve of Trump’s military-themed Independence Day event in Washington D.C., dozens of his supporters, mostly white men, came together for a rally to celebrate the president.
Video from the event showed the president’s supporters clashing with Bruce, a 60-year-old homeless man who is a vocal critic of the president and who spends most of his time near the White House, reports the Huffington Post.
In a video filmed by Huffington Post reporter Jen Bendery, Bruce can be heard shouting: “Trump is a dick! Trump supporters are the STD!”
“No, I’m a motherfucking American patriot, you piece of shit!” responded Terry Pennington of Charlotte, North Carolina. “You are a piece of shit!”
“Take your fucking medication!” said a second Trump backer.
“Blah blah blah blah!” said a third Trump supporter in a “Blacks make racial slurs & commit hate crimes too!!” T-shirt. “You’re just a loud-mouthed whore!”
According to the news outlet, the altercation escalated when a Trump supporter got up close into Bruce’s face and shoved him backward with his shoulders.
Speaking to the Huffington Post after the altercation, Bruce, said: “I feel like I’m amidst jackals who don’t speak English. I’ve never met Trump supporters who do not run away from facts. We need to save our country, but this is not the path to go. This is the path to extinction.”
