When President Trump retweeted writer Matt Walsh highlighting a viral video of a vicious beating of a white man by a black man at Macy’s, the media went NUTS calling Trump a racist.
But apparently when Trump said “Was this man arrested?” it was a good question.
And the answer to it will soon be a deserved “yes.”
Damire Palmer, seen on the video beating the Macy’s manager, is being charged with felony assault for the UNPROVOKED attack.
“This is the most egregious felony assault charge in Michigan law, so I think it’s appropriate,” said the prosecutor.

The police have been trying to locate the brothers but have not found them yet.

This was a blatant and vicious racist attack.
And now he’s facing up to ten years for it.

But question: why isn’t a HATE crime??
