A Montana man charged with assaulting a 13-year-old boy who refused to remove his hat during the national anthem believed he was doing what President Donald Trump wanted him to do, his attorney said.
Attorney Lance Jasper told the Missoulian he will seek a mental health evaluation for Curt Brockway, a U.S. Army veteran who became caught up in the heightened animosity and rhetoric gripping the nation, and convinced himself that he was following the president’s orders.
“Trump never necessarily says go hurt somebody, but the message is absolutely clear,” Jasper said. “I am certain of the fact that (Brockway) was doing what he believed he was told to do, essentially, by the president. ... Everyone should learn to dial it down a little bit, from the president to Mineral County.”

Trump made me do it
That is his defense
Oh, that's gold.
I was just taking a stab in the dark (or educated guess) about him being a hardline Trump supporter. Then it turns out he's actually using it as a defence... lol.
Crazy times bringing out crazy people who think the president is telling them to hurt and kill.
Only conservatives believe that you can have both a sissy trans , tree hugger who is triggered by micro aggressions AND a maurauding militant strike force member in the same box.. lol

It's absolutely disgusting that you would attempt to politicize this. You need some serious mental help.
I simply just posted the story and pointed out that it seemed to have Trump rhetoric written all over it... Turns out I was right.
