Months of dangerously stupid rhetoric from Republican presidential hopeful and professional asshole Donald Trump finally came to their unfortunately inevitable conclusion on Wednesday, when two self-proclaimed Trump supporters in South Boston urinated on and otherwise brutalized a homeless Hispanic man. The two men broke the 58-year-old man's nose and severely battered his chest and arms, according to the Boston Globe.
The suspects, brothers Scott and Steve Leader, reportedly have an extensive criminal record and seemed to be proud of their semi-successful attack. "Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported," Scott reportedly told officers upon his arrest. The men ambushed the victim while he was sleeping at a bus stop, considered by local police as a racially targeted attack.
When informed of the attack later that day, Trump didn't exactly condemn the supporters' actions. Instead, he essentially chalked up the entire incident to a potential case of being "very passionate":
“It would be a shame. I will say that people who are following me are very passionate. They love this country and they want this country to be great again. They are passionate.”
And now, finally, is the part where everyone admits that none of this is even ironically funny anymore. Bill Clinton's planted implosion device jokes aside, the undercurrent of violence in Trump's campaign narrative has finally (embarrassingly) manifested itself among those most susceptible to such a grand message of stupidity: actual stupid people.
