Joseph Moreno, a 12-year-old American citizen, had just spoken out in opposition to Trump’s draconian policies during a city council meeting in Huntington Park, California, when a Trump fan draped in a flag confronted the boy.
Obnoxiously chanting “American! American!” in support of the President, the man set his sights on Moreno, calling him a “brainwashed little boy” for his comments during the meeting.
“I’m a racist? Do I look racist? You have no idea, you’re just a little boy! … It has to do with common sense. Am I a racist?”
“Hey, hey, hey. It’s not worth fighting a little kid, right?”
“So am I a racist?” the man pressed, over and over. “So am I a racist? So am I a racist?”
Finally, Moreno, in clear and simple terms, decimated the Trump fan’s argument.
“You’re not a racist, but the guy you voted for…”
This misguided man thought he found easy prey in a 12-year-old, but instead got humiliated. Not only is this video a commentary on the Trump fan’s ignorance, but just how difficult it is to justify his reckless and un-American rhetoric.
