President Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame has emerged as an unlikely battleground between Los Angeles Trump supporters and his detractors. There have been fights, shouting matches, and men dressed as Russian cops "protecting" the star - while two separate videos of men destroying it with pickaxes have gone viral.
Despite efforts by the LAPD to separate pro and anti-Trump groups, yet another scuffle broke out Sunday evening between a man in a MAGA hat speaking into a megaphone and two anti-Trump protesters.
A group of pro-Trump supporters said the man was not with them as he shouted, “We got America great again'” and other pro-Trump slogans.
His red MAGA had seemed to be a target from some in the anti-Trump crowd.
“[This guy] came up and said he was going to pull his hat off, and I was like [makes a negative sounding noise] went up and pulled the Make America Great Again hat off and after that everything just went crazy. They started fighting,” said one woman.
“The kid’s father came and said hey that’s my son. Don’t be going after my son. Got up in his face. Starts pushing him. Then the guy with the megaphone head-butted him,” said Louie Martinez. -CBS Los Angeles
The father ended up with a bloody cut on his nose, while a man in a burgandy shirt believed to be his son was wrestled to the ground as he assaulted a police officer. Police are reportedly looking for the father.
