Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign is inspiring people — but not the way he wants!
South Boston brothers Scott and Steve Leader are under arrest after reportedly urinating on and attacking a homeless immigrant while he was sleeping outside of a MBTA stop!
On Wednesday, the brothers pleaded not guilty to several assault charges, but said their attack was inspired by the former Apprentice host’s anti-immigrant comments in his campaign speech!
38-year-old Scott allegedly told police it was okay to attack the homeless man because he was Hispanic, saying:
“Donald Trump was right, all these illegals need to be deported.”
While Scott — who has been previously imprisoned for a hate crime — told police that the homeless man attacked his 30-year-old brother with a pole, witnesses said the homeless man grabbed the pole in defense!
According to the police report, the homeless man was allegedly woken up by the two men urinating on his face, then was punched several times and hit with a metal pole.
After The Donald found out about the assault, he admitted “that would be the shame,” if the brothers with extensive criminal history were inspired by his speech.
But then he chalked it up the hate crime to his following being “very passionate,” saying:
“I will say, the people that are following me are very passionate. They love this country. They want this country to be great again. But they are very passionate. I will say that.”
Um, was that trying to spin this positively?? Ick.
We think it’s safe to say this candidate isn’t attracting the right kind of passion.
