At a rally in Dallas Texas, Donald Trump asked his security for a Taser and then unapologetically used it on a 4 month old boy who had been crying.
Defending his actions Trump said, “Well, the baby wouldn’t stop crying, and then the mother was attempting to breastfeed it during my speech, it’s just disgusting.”
“Get ’em out of here, get ’em out of here,” Trump told security, then turned to the crowd, “I don’t care what they say, they were probably sent here by the Hillary or Bernie people. Who would breastfeed their baby in public anyway but a loser liberal?”
The parents, Marjorie and Alvin Costello, of Red Oak, Texas, protested as they were led out, saying that they were indeed die hard Trump supporters. Two of the couple’s friends who tried to defend the family from the heckling and spitting crowd, were also asked to leave.
At the center of the incident, baby Alex was apparently unharmed by the Tasering and the Costellos declined to press charges, though they have already filed a civil suit. “It’s not personal, we still plan to vote for him, the lawsuit is just the American way, we want to be really rich too, like Donald Trump, and that’s why we know he’ll understand,” Marjorie Costello said.
Dallas Police, however, took a very dim view of The Don’s Tasering of the tot, and announced that a thorough investigation has been launched. Donald Trump may yet face child abuse charges in Dallas.
Ironically, had Trump shot baby Alex with a traditional firearm, he likely would face no charges.
Political pundits and talking heads have once again proclaimed this to be the end of Trump’s presidential aspirations. Disputing that view, a CNN/Gallup poll following the Tasering, showed a five percent increase among likely voters choosing Trump in a general election.
