15-Year-old Attacked for Wearing Trump hat


A 15-year-old High School student is making headlines this morning after being attacked at his school for wearing a Trump hat.

The incident took place early in September when schools were scheduled to return in-person. The student, not named because of his age, was wearing a mask and a Trump hat, and his mask was taken off by a female assailant. The mask was thrown away in the female bathroom, and it’s when the female assailant exited the bathroom that she is seen on film attempting to steal the Trump hat while spitting at the 15-year-old student.

The student’s mother, Meshyalah McElhaney, was interviewed shortly after regarding the incident, and she has informed that the female in question has been expelled and that she will likely be criminally charged.

She commented that “he has not attended public school since 1st grade, he has attended charter schools and was doing fine.”

“This year he was taking two electives at public school and this happened just two weeks in,” she added, noting that “he is solely doing online now.” McElhaney then praised her son, saying that she is “so incredibly proud of him for holding his ground and not giving into her and retaliating.”

Two girls, both tenth graders, according to McElhaney, will be charged. One will be charged with a felony and the other will likely face a misdemeanor or felony.

The incident shows how divisive the current election season has been for many Americans, and with the election in under 20 days, commentary and criticism will further drive Americans to the ballot box.
