Trump Balloon Slasher Slams Liberals: '1st Time They're Mad About Chopping Up a Baby'
Man who burst 'baby Trump' balloon makes reference to Democratic abortion stance
The Trump supporter, who was charged with slashing a liberal's anti-Trump balloon at a Tuscaloosa protest last weekend, has defended his actions by referencing the Democrats' pro-abortion stance.
“When you got one party that says it’s OK to kill babies and by the way, this is the first time I’m ever seen a liberal get mad about chopping up a baby,” Hoyt Deau Hutchinson stated.
32-year-old Hutchinson told AOL.com:
“I got so fired up when I rolled by the balloon, and I rolled down the window, and I said something to them, and I figured they saw me,” he said.
“I figured the only way I was going to get close enough to that balloon was to blend in.
"(I) went and bought me an Alabama shirt and walked up like I was walking to the game, and like I was going to take a picture with (the Trump balloon).”
Anti-Trumper liberals used the balloon to protest President Donald Trump's presence at the Alabama/LSU football game.
“I was so fired up,” Hutchinson said.
“I was shaking; I was so mad.”
“I’m not young, but I’m not old. I’m sort of middle-aged. I feel like a lot of people my age don’t keep up with the news and politics the way they should. I watch the news every night,” he told host Rick Burgess.
"I watch Fox News every night. Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity are my favorite two anchors."
“I see this stuff going on out west and up north and all other places,” he continued.
“I get so mad about people not taking a stand.”
Hutchinson asserted that popping the balloon was necessary for taking a stand.
“The Left wants to use religion against you like you shouldn’t act like this and stuff, but I’ll tell you this – the Devil knows the Bible as good as we do,” he said.
“This was your turning of the temple tables?” Burgess asked, in reference to Jesus turning over the money changers’ tables in the temple.
“Yes,” Hutchinson replied.
“It comes a point when you gotta take a stand. We don’t have two parties anymore. We have good vs. evil.”
Neon Nettle reported on Tuesday that Hutchison slashed the Trump balloon and was later arrested and charged with first-degree criminal mischief.
According to a statement from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, police:
“Officers observed Hoyt Deau Hutchinson, age 32 of Tuscaloosa, AL, cut into the ‘Baby Trump’ balloon, and then attempted to flee the area.
"Officers apprehended the suspect and took him into custody on a charge of Criminal Mischief First Degree.
"Hoyt was transported to Tuscaloosa County Jail, where he was held on a $2,500 bond."
Fellow Trump supporters rushed to Hutchinson's aide in helping him with legal fees.
On donation site GoFundMe, MAGA supporters raised more than $38,000.
