Man Arrested for Assaulting Teen Trump Supporter in New Hampshire Polling Site
Teenagee 'traumatized' after incident at Windham High School
A man was arrested on Thursday after reportedly assaulting a 15-year-old Trump supporter along with two adults at a polling site in New Hampshire.
The young supporter of the president is said to have been left "traumatized," according to his mother.
Patrick Bradley, 34, of Windham, was charged with assault and disorderly conduct, according to the Windham Police Department.
Bradley reportedly exited the voting location inside the high school and was walking by a Trump campaign tent occupied by several supporters, according to police.
Bradley proceeded to slap the 15-year old across the face a before assaulting two other adults who attempted to intercede.
He is also accused of throwing Trump campaign signs and attempting to knock over the campaign tent.
The boy's mother, Cathy Campbell, described the incident.
“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.”
Both Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle were at the polling place on Tuesday.
Campbell said 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.”
“My son was standing outside on the sidewalk, and he said ‘have a nice night,’ he told 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 described how another man came to intervene but ended up with a fractured jaw.

Last week a deranged leftist attempted to run over a group of Trump supporters with a car in FL.
What will it take for the MSM to finally call out leftwing violence? https://t.co/auabw5TKIW
“He’s the sweetest kid,” Campbell said of her son.
“He was so excited and not realizing that something like this could happen.”
“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.”
“There will always be the people who try to blame the victim,” she said. “But he certainly did nothing wrong.”
“It’s scary that you can’t express without fear which political party you are. People need to know how much intolerance there is right now.”
“It sickens me that people would be angry at a kid for wearing a stupid hat,” she said.
The mother explained how her family are “Republicans, and we are Donald Trump supporters.”
“He’s not perfect, but he’s our president, and we support him,” she said.
