A protester against President Donald Trump spit on a man wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat who was being interviewed Thursday outside the Trump rally in Minneapolis. The MAGA hat is the iconic symbol of Trump’s 2016 presidential run.
Dave Carlson, a salesman, was telling VICE News on camera why he donates to Trump’s campaign when a protester spit on Carlson’s face and kept walking by.
The interviewer was horrified, and several others expressed shock — but Carlson was unfazed.
“Oh, nice!” he exclaimed before wiping the saliva off his left cheek.
“I’m fine, I’m fine,” he added, taking out a handkerchief.
VICE News said one protester who wasn’t the perpetrator apologized to Carlson — and another, who also wasn’t the guilty party, kind of apologized.
“That’s f***ing disrespectful,” the dreadlocked guy told Carlson before pointing at his MAGA hat and adding, “but on the other hand, that s**t is disrespectful as f***, too. So there’s a difference.”
“I respect your opinion,” Carlson replied to the guy. (Content warning: Rough language):

Are we seeing a pattern?
Apart from all the other left-wing mayhem outside the Trump rally in Minneapolis — tossing urine, burning MAGA hats, physically attacking Trump supporters while calling them Nazis — a number of left-wing spitting incidents have hit the headlines of late as well.
After all, who can forget this woman spitting on a pro-life activist late last month at George Washington University?
