Mexican-American Businesswoman Is Attacked for Wearing a MAGA Hat

During Barack Obama's years in the White House, how many people were treated this way simply for wearing a piece of clothing?

Paloma Zuniga is a supporter of President Donald Trump who runs a Facebook page called Paloma for Trump.

She loves the commander-in-chief and wants to help make America great again.

Have you ever noticed Democrats are always talking about being the party of tolerance and inclusion, yet they are the first to attack a Republican who is wearing a MAGA hat instead of practicing what they preach — and tolerating and respecting another’s First Amendment right to wear that hat?

By the way, it’s perfectly legal to record anybody in a public area.

Just because the person in the video (shown below) doesn’t like being recorded does not mean it’s illegal to do so, as long as it takes place in a public area.

On Friday, Paloma Zuniga, a Mexican-American businesswoman, was mailing a package at a post office in San Diego, California, when, according to her, a woman ahead of her in line said, “You should be ashamed of yourself for wearing that hat, you stupid b****.”

Zuniga says she ignored the woman but switched on her camera. “As a Trump supporter, I deal with this kind of stuff a lot,” Zuniga tells Yahoo Lifestyle. The “political influencer” of the Facebook account Paloma for Trump has admired the president since 2007, especially his position on immigration and “the voice and courage he gives to Americans.”

On Zuniga’s recording, the woman says, “Don’t talk to me and don’t record me.”

The video gets shaky, which Zuniga says occurred because the woman struck her phone and grabbed her wrist.

“Don’t touch me!” yells Zuniga. “You have no reason to harass me because of my hat.” (source: Yahoo Lifestyle)

When Obama was in office playing his games, liberals loved him. Now that the tables are turned and the liberals don’t like President Trump, they become unglued and attack anyone who supports him.

Incidents such as this one are a big reason we support President Trump. He might not be very diplomatic, but he calls out these “all-inclusive” Democrats for what they are.

Not all Dems are intolerant, but they sure aren’t your daddy’s Democrats.

I don’t agree with most Democrat policies, but I don’t confront those with bumper stickers declaring their politics on their vehicles — and there are a lot of them with faded ones.

This is America and it’s their choice.
