Trump supporters have each other’s backs, especially when you hurt innocent women. A “Make America Great Again” rally in Huntington Beach, California descended into violence after a masked anti-Trumper pepper-sprayed and punched event organizer Jennifer Sterling.
Furious Trump supporters flew into action, beating down a group of masked protesters who came just to disrupt their event. A massive brawl erupted, ending with several arrests.
Travis Guenther — whose wife was also pepper-sprayed — chased down the masked man who assaulted his wife and hit him with a flag that said: “Trump, Make America Great Again.”
“I hit him five times with the flag over his head,” Guenther told the Los Angeles Times. “We’re not xenophobic. We’re not racist. We’re just proud Americans.”

Steele Vaz, 17, was disgusted when he saw masked men pepper-spray and punch event organizer Jennifer Sterling.
“They sprayed her. They were punching her,” Vaz told the Los Angeles Times. “I was here to support [Trump] but I didn’t know it was going to be violent.”

The Huntington Beach rally was one of 40 pro-Trump events scheduled around the country Saturday. Not all of them ended in violence, but many were disrupted by masked protesters, who bullied and assaulted Trump supporters.
Whenever anti-Trumpers hold rallies, Trump supporters do what most rational people do: They stay home to avoid an event they don’t support.
In contrast, leach-like anti-Trumpers can’t seem to leave Trump supporters alone, and almost always crash their events.

Elsa Aldeguer, a Latina Trump supporter, asked her 9-year-old son to speak to the crowd. “The media only says bad things about Trump,” the boy said.
Trump supporters say protesters will not bully them into skipping pro-Trump rallies. “That is even more reason to go,” one woman said.
