Early Wednesday, a man took a pickax to President Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star and totally destroyed it according to Los Angeles police Officer Ray Brown. It’s not the first time it has been vandalized and it’s not even the first time it’s been destroyed. But the vandal, Austin Clay, 24, certainly did the most thorough job of taking it out this time. Online records of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department list Clay as released early Thursday morning after being charged with a felony offense. His next court date is scheduled for Aug. 15.
Clay claims he was so fed up with Trump that he felt compelled to do what he did. He’s not sorry and he’s happy he did it too. Clay is proudly owning it, as stated in an exclusive interview with TMZ. He says what pushed him over the edge was the president’s treatment of immigrant families and their children. Clay felt that destroying Trump’s star was the perfect way to send a message to the President of the United States.
Not so much. It doesn’t seem like this sends any kind of message that Trump will or should listen to and the star has already been restored.
What I don’t understand is why no one stopped this guy. Someone had to see him do it even if it was at night. Then again, we are talking Hollywood here and perhaps no one cared. Patricia Cox, a witness, told CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS that she saw a man “going to town” on the ground “like it was his business just to be tearing up the ground,” she said. “I thought it was work going on over here.” Video from KCAL/KCBS shows tourists taking photos of the defaced star in front of the Hollywood & Highland center, a major tourist spot in Hollywood.
Clay and his girlfriend say that his pickax caught the attention of a couple of celebrities, including noted Trump foe Robert De Niro. He’s certainly no fan of The Donald and lets it be known every chance he gets these days. I’m not exactly sure how this caught De Niro’s attention or what the backstory is here. But we’ll probably hear about it at some future point in time.
Clay seems to be claiming that De Niro has his back and left him a voice message. We’ll see. This guy certainly seems to like the attention. You can see his video admission here when a TMZ reporter caught up with him.
CNN Politics has the details of what led up to this recent interview with Clay:
“Trump’s star has repeatedly been the target of vandalism and protests since the reality TV star’s turn to politics. In April 2016, a Superman impersonator on Hollywood Boulevard said he had seen visitors make obscene gestures next to the star, deface it with paint and allow a dog to relieve itself on the landmark.
“”People often stomp with anger on the star, others kick their heels over the star, and some spit. The last time, someone put a sticker over the star,” Francisco Javier, another street performer who was dressed like Superman, said at the time.
“A street artist constructed a tiny wall around Trump’s star in July 2016, and that October Los Angeles police arrested a man who they said vandalized the star with a sledgehammer and a pickax.”
Clay was arrested around 3 am on Wednesday. He called the police himself. Hollywood division officers responded to the call at 3:33 am to the tourist area. He was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism. James Otis, who destroyed Trump’s Hollywood star in 2016, offered to pay Clay’s $20,000 bail, but someone else paid it first. It’s not known who that was at this point. Otis is an heir to the Otis Elevator Co., which is one of the largest elevator and escalator companies in the world. It costs $3,000 to replace Trump’s star and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will be going after Clay for the bill.
Leron Gubler, who is the president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, said in a statement that the Walk of Fame is “an institution celebrating the positive contributions of the inductees. When people are unhappy with one of our honorees, we would hope that they would project their anger in more positive ways than to vandalize a California State landmark,” Gubler said. “Our democracy is based on respect for the law. People can make a difference by voting and not destroying public property.” All true except the ‘democracy’ part… we are a republic.
By early Wednesday afternoon, construction workers were busily mixing concrete to replace the destroyed star. Tourists and residents leaned over the yellow caution tape surrounding the star to snap photos and selfies of where it had been. SMH.
Gregg Donovan, the former official greeter for Beverly Hills, stood near the star all day, holding a “Trump 2020” sign and wearing a red coat and top hat. Donovan said when he heard the news on the radio about Trump’s star, he decided to take the day off and instead spend it showing his support for the president by standing sentinel. He even snagged a piece of the destroyed star — a few people offered him money to buy it, but he wasn’t selling. “If you’re going to protest, don’t protest a California landmark,” Donovan said. “You are free to speak your mind, but why do that? It’s bad. It’s wrong.”
Others in all kinds of costumes took advantage of the attention as well. It is, after all, Hollywood. However, the action was not met with overwhelming approval this time. Even Hollywood liberals thought the defacement went too far. In the end, what Clay did says far more about him than President Trump. The star has been replaced and Trump is still making America great again. Clay, not so much.
Rock Star Sees Trump Supporter In Crowd, Jumps Off Stage And Makes Him Pay Vile Price [Video]
This has to be the worst case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to date!
A Trump supporter is now saying that he was attacked when he attended a July concert in Sacramento, California. By none other than the touring band’s lead singer.
Tim Hildebrand, who is a local farmer, claims that Social Distortion lead singer Mike Ness began bashing President Donald Trump and America during his performance. So he did what any patriotic American would do in counter protest and flipped off the band.
Hildebrand explained he stood silently in protest with his middle finger up for the next two songs, the band played. “I pretty much said I paid for your music, not your politics,” said the patriot.
But Ness, who is the lead singer then confronted him and the conflict escalated.
Here is more on this via the Daily Mail::
“The lead singer of a legendary punk rock band allegedly attacked a Trump supporter during a show in California last month.
“Tim Hildebrand said that he suffered a bloody lip, two black eyes and a concussion while attending a Social Distortion performance at the Ace of Spades nightclub in Midtown Sacramento on July 17.
“Footage of the incident shows 56-year-old frontman Mike Ness apparently spitting on a member of the crowd before taking off his guitar and jumping into the audience.
“‘I wasn’t able to defend myself because people in the crowd were holding me back,’ he said.
“According to network affiliate CBS13, the tussle broke out after Hildebrand began jeering the singer while Ness trashed President Donald Trump and the United States between songs.
“‘I pretty much said I paid for your music, not your politics,’ Hildebrand claimed in a self-recorded video clip captured on his camera phone and later provided to CBS13.
“He added: ‘I stood pretty much with my silent protest with my middle finger up for the next two songs.’
“That prompted Ness to motion for the California man to come towards the stage, where the notoriously curmudgeon frontman apparently spat in his face.
“The clip shows the two start yelling at each other and as tempers run hot, the situation quickly escalates.
“‘[He] takes his guitar off, jumps off the stage and proceeds to punch me multiple times in the head,’ Hildebrand said.
“Another spectator at the show, Social Distortion fan James Mauldin, said that Ness acted unprofessionally and should not have attacked a fan, calling the scuffle ‘a little bit excessive.’
“But Mauldin also noted that controversy is part of the punk rock culture. ‘If you’re that into politics, don’t put yourself in a situation where it could become a problem for you,’ said Mauldin.
“Hildebrand said that after the alleged attack, security guards escorted him from the venue where he filed a police report with cops stationed outside.
“For the Republican and farmer from the nearby town of Galt, Hildebrand, who grew up listening to the Social Distortion, never thought he’d find himself in a physical confrontation with one of his musical heroes.
“‘Someone that has the status that he does shouldn’t get away with assaulting someone,’ Hildebrand said, adding ‘If he wants to have a talk someday, man to man, I would love that but he would have to not be a child about it.’
“For his part, Hildebrand is weighing whether to take action against the singer and collect damages.
“A representative for the band has not responded to requests for comment.”
According to Hildebrand, Ness began to yell at him as he took his guitar off and jumps off the stage as he proceeds to punch the patriot multiple times in the head. Wow.
Hildebrand points to a video which seems to confirm his story. Ness appears to yell at a member of the audience, stop playing in the middle of the song, and hops off stage to attack someone. He then goes back on stage and resumes playing. Wow, I am guessing drugs must have been involved here.
The attacked fan later said he wasn’t able to defend himself because people in the crowd were holding him back as Ness beat him.
Sadly, when all was said and done the Republican farmer and lifelong fan of Social Distortion confirms that Ness gave him a concussion, a busted lip, two black eyes, and almost knocked out one of his teeth as he was escorted out of the venue by security after being attacked. He filed a police report and plans to press charges. Sacramento Police are investigating the incident.
Good for him, make sure this band pays for what they have done to you! This has to be the worst case of Trump Derangement Syndrome to date and it can’t go unpunished!
Immigrant Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. Had Enough Of ‘View’ Hosts And Dismantles Them LIVE [Video]
This is the way you handle The View!
Immigrant actor Antonio Sabato Jr. just crushed the hosts of “The View” when they started talking with him about immigration. The truth bombs absolutely crushed them when he started talking from the heart and giving them the truth about immigration and the right way to do things. It seems like the hosts from “The View” tried to set him up to sabotage Donald Trump and his ideas for immigration reform and protecting the border by reducing illegal immigration. Whatever they might have had planned didn’t work.
Sabato Jr. absolutely crushed them with his honest words. The hosts didn’t really know what to do and it seems like they regretted having him on the show. They probably assumed that having an immigrant on their show would result in Sabato Jr. dismantling Trump and giving the hosts exactly what they wanted. Not so fast!
Not everyone believes in supporting illegal immigration and trashing the president just because he wants to protect the borders and eliminate sanctuary city status that’s constantly plaguing the nation when criminals run free in the land of Democrat-controlled cities. It’s one thing to be an illegal immigrant, but when there are violent illegal immigrants s******y assaulting children (see Philadelphia) then you have a major problem.
Sabato Jr. supports legal immigration and that’s the way to do it.
Katie Jerkovich from The Daily Caller posted this about Antonio Sabato Jr.’s truth bombs: “We had to wait in line and struggle and save a lot of money,” Sabato explained.
The comments came after host Sunny Hostin questioned his support of a wall being built after he explained that he came to the country from Italy at 12-years-old speaking no English.
“Let me ask you another thing difficult for me to understand,” Hostin said. “We talked about your family having to hide their identity during the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia and you came here at 12 years old from Italy speaking no English and this country embraced you.”
“You call yourself an immigrant, but you’re in favor of the wall being built, being paid for by the American people and keeping other immigrants out of the country much like yourself,” she added.
“The way I see it, I want the American people to be taken care of first,” Sabato, who is running for Congress in California, responded. “I don’t want the American people to take care of everybody else’s problem…”
“But if they felt that way when your family was coming over here you would still be in Italy,” Joy Behar interrupted.
“I came here legally. We had to wait in line and struggle and save a lot of money,” Sabato shared. “There’s people like that waiting in line. So, they deserve their chance. We need to legalize — I mean there has to be reform… but at the same time, we need to protect our borders and build.”
“But logically people who are coming in even legally or illegally are flying in, they’re not jumping over a wall,” Behar exclaimed. “It’s a waste of money. Isn’t it? That’s how I see it.”
“We are arresting at the border 1,000 people every single day,” Sabato said. “And there’s probably a lot more coming in. So we can’t allow that to happen and they’re bringing a lot of drugs or whatever. So, we need to protect the American people. That’s all I’m saying.”
“And you think this wall is going to do it,” Behar quipped.
“It’s done it for Israel. Mexico has a got a wall,” Sabato shared. “Why can’t we?”
“It’s a very big, big, big expensive wall we’re talking about and it may not be cost-effective.”
“We spend $100 billion on immigration every year. The wall will cost, will probably cost less than $20 billion,” the actor shared. ” So, we will save a lot of money.”
The hosts of “The View” have a funny history of getting owned on their own show. It wasn’t that long ago when Whoopi Goldberg got told she has “Trump Derangement Syndrome” when Judge Jeanine Pirro was a guest. The funny videos from “The View” seem to happen every once in a while and they just keep getting better.
The only thing we can do now is wait to see who the next guest is that causes a funny stir or a wickedly exciting commotion big enough to get the guests all worked up!
Antonio Sabato Jr. had a very calm and firm demeanor in his delivery. Judge Jeanine was more bold and outspoken.
