Man Arrested Following Assault of Pro-Trump Teen at New Hampshire Polling Site
Fox News is reporting that a 34-year-old man has been arrested for assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter and two adults at a New Hampshire polling site earlier this week. According to the mother of the teenage boy, her son has been “traumatized” as a result of the incident.
Patrick Bradley is accused of assaulting the teenage boy at a polling location in Windham, New Hampshire on Tuesday. The boy was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat and standing with others at a Trump campaign tent outside Windham High School. Police say Bradley approached the tent after exiting the voting location inside the high school. As he passed by, police say Bradley slapped the boy across the face and assaulted two other adults who attempted to intervene. The man has been charged with disorderly conduct and simple assault.
The mother gave an exclusive interview to Fox News.

“My son stayed home from school on Tuesday for a doctor’s appointment and we drove by the high school to go vote. When we got there, we saw Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle, and my son was over the moon,” she said. “My son is the most patriotic kid you’d ever meet in your life.”
The Trump campaign confirmed that both Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle were at the polling place on Tuesday.
Campbell told Fox News that later in the day, her son was invited to volunteer at the polling site and hold Trump signs outside the school.
“I was apprehensive about him wearing the MAGA hat, because we know it can provoke and we know people don’t like Trump,” she explained. “But he wore the hat because he’s a proud 15-year-old and he doesn’t know what people are going to be like.”
Campbell said she dropped her son off to volunteer at the school.
“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk and he said ‘have a nice night,’ he said it to everyone. But this man was triggered,” Campbell explained. “He said ‘f— you’ to him and wound up his hand as fast as he could and slapped him across the face.”
Campbell said that a man, also wearing a MAGA hat, came over to intervene. According to Campbell, that man now has a fractured jaw.
Campbell told Fox News that her husband is a firefighter in town and was on duty during the incident.
“He got the call about the assault and didn’t know it was our son until he got there,” she explained.
“He’s the sweetest kid,” Campbell said of her son. “He was so excited and not realizing that something like this could happen.”
Since the incident Tuesday, Campbell said her son is “pretty traumatized.”
“This guy lives in our town. It’s pretty unnerving,” she said, but added that her son has been going to school and is getting “a lot of support from his peers.”
The Left’s constant hysteria over Trump seems to be inciting some elements of their base towards violence.
On Saturday, a man plowed his van into a GOP voter registration tent in Jacksonville, Florida. Fortunately, the man narrowly missed hitting anybody with his vehicle but was seen flipping off Trump supporters as he drove away. According to the arrest report, the 27-year-old suspect told police that he did not like President Trump and that was part of the reason he targeted the tent in his vehicle.
It looks like Trump tents are going to be popular targets of leftists this election year.
